Recipe Swap – Pumpkin Pie Milkshake

Sharing is caring!

It’s time for another Recipe Swap today! We’ve been having great participation and many of you have shared some delicious recipes. I’ve definitely been adding some to my collection to try out!

My recipe for today is a Pumpkin Pie Milkshake. I love anything pumpkin and my husband loves pumpkin even more than I do! So, I thought I’d share a new recipe I found–which is sure to be a favorite for years to come!

This recipe comes from a cool blog called “Our Best Bites” (I found out about this from one of you wonderful readers). And they have this awesome recipe for Pumpkin Pie milkshakes! We made these the night before Halloween while carving our pumpkins! The perfect treat! Just wish we’d doubled the batch because it was SO good! We’re definitely going to be making these again this month!

Here’s the recipe from Our Best Bites – head on over to the blog to see more detailed instructions and pictures::

Pumpkin Pie Milkshake

1/3 C pumpkin, canned or homemade
1/4 – 1/2 C milk
1/4 t vanilla
1/2 t cinnamon
1/16 t cloves (just use a 1/8 t measure and fill it half way, or do a pinch)
1/16 t nutmeg
2 T brown sugar
2 C vanilla ice cream
1-2 graham crackers

Pop everything but graham crackers in a blender. Start with 1/4 C milk and then slowly add more if needed to make the blender process it all. Use somewhere between 1/4-1/2 C. Then just add crushed graham crackers on top and you’re good to go!! Yum!

I did attempt to take a picture of the final product, but my camera has been acting up and I could not get a picture without a major glare from the glass. But, check out the pictures at Our Best Bites!

  1. I love the pumpkin pie milkshake, it's soo delicious I can't resist it (so I'm avoiding buying vanilla ice cream for the time being).

  2. My grandmother was a child of the depression so she sure knew how to squeeze eleven cents out of a dime. She always saved her veggie scraps even when making something from veggie scraps, like saving the peelings from the broccoli stalks to make veggie stock.

    I love that this soup is super low fat and it can be vegan! It also works with almost any veggie, cabbage cores make a very tastey soup.

    Grandma's Depression Veggie Soup

    4 large Broccoli stalks, peeled and cut into 2" match sticks
    1 medium broccoli crown, chopped
    1 large onion, chopped
    3 cloves garlic, chopped
    2 tbs olive oil
    6 cups water or broth
    1 pkg sliken tofu
    salt and pepper to taste

    Saute garlic and onions until tender. Add broccoli stalks and cook until begining to soften. Add broccoli crowns and broth or water. Simmer all together until very tender but not mush. Working in batches, puree soup in a blender. In the last batch add entire package of tofu. Return soup to stock pot and simmer until reduced in volume by about a 1/4. Add salt and pepper to taste.
