Pumpkin Pie Milkshake
As if you will have any of that famous pumpkin pie leftover, right? Well, in case your guests are just too stuffed to get to dessert this year, wow them the next day (or even on the day) with this creamy, Pumpkin Pie milkshake. Because, why eat your pie when you can drink it with ice cream? I know, I ask myself that question all the time.
1 large slice of pumpkin pie (approximately 3 inches) – save a couple of the pie crust edges for a tasty, crunchy garnish
2 large scoops of vanilla ice cream
1/3 cup milk
- Put all ingredients in blender and blend
- Do a milkshake dance
- Pour milkshake into a tall glass
- Top with a dollop of whipped cream and a piece of pie crust edge
- For extra points, sprinkle some cinnamon or chocolate sprinkles on top!
