Pumpkin Pie Milkshake

It’s full-on summer here, and anything cold is divine–air conditioner, ice, milkshakes… So I went on the hunt for a cold beverage and found this Pumpkin Pie Milkshake recipe on my beverage board. My love of pumpkin spice anything made this was a must-try recipe.

I don’t know about you, but pumpkin pie screams fall to me. I start dreaming about it when people begin talking about pumpkin spice lattes and once Thanksgiving gets nearer… well, it’s all over from there. There is no stopping me from starting with dessert on Thanksgiving day.

The Ingredients

This is a simple recipe with just a few ingredients: vanilla ice cream, milk, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, graham cracker crumbs, and whipped cream. I think the key here is to buy a really good vanilla ice cream. I went for Blue Bell since it’s super-rich and creamy. Bonus that the 1-pint container was exactly the amount needed to make this recipe.

The Process

How much easier can it get than to throw most everything into a blender and press a button? I definitely see the reason the graham cracker crumbs need to be stirred in after, though. It keeps them from getting too pulverized and soggy, so you get the sensation of pie crust as you drink.

BTW, I have to share my graham cracker crushing technique. I broke up 2 crackers into quarters and slipped them into a zippered sandwich bag. That made then easy to crush with my hands, kept things from getting too messy, and gave me ready-made storage for the leftovers.

So how was it?

This recipe lived up to its name: It's a pumpkin pie in a glass. Well, pumpkin pie topped with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. It was easy to prepare and took 5 minutes to prep, blend, pour and garnish. Speaking of garnish, that part was easy to do with canned whipped cream and made the milkshakes look almost professional.

Steak Fajita Skewers with Cilantro Chimichurri

Juicy steak with grilled vegetables is always a winning combination. Fajita seasoning and a piquant chimichurri only make these fajita skewers better.
