Thank you Terri from Love and Confections for hosting this event!

I chose to do a pumpkin shake for today’s recipe. I like pumpkin cold in ice cream, so why not a milkshake? This shake doesn’t cheat by using pumpkin ice cream. I added real pumpkin puree to the mix. Enhancing that subtle pumpkin taste came from warm spices and almond. Pure, good quality vanilla ice cream adds to the richness.
If you never had pumpkin as a milkshake I’ll bet it will be a new fall favorite!

  • Blend together milk, pumpkin, ice cream. almond extract. vanilla and cinnamon until smooth.
  • Pour into a tall glass. Garnish with nutmeg. Serve.
