Now that it’s pumpkin season, I’ve been craving it more than usual. So, when Kenny and I went to Trader Joes a couple of days ago and picked up some vanilla ice cream, I knew we had to make it special for the season.
I’m posting this recipe specially for my new dad-in-law, Dennis, who has quite the sweet tooth 🙂
Pumpkin Spice Milkshakes – makes 4 small or 3 large
1-1/3 cup Canned Organic Pumpkin Purée
2 cups Milk, super cold
1 Tbsp Ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Ground Ginger
1/2 tsp freshly Grated Nutmeg
1/4 Cup Sugar
4 cups Trader Joes’ Vanilla Ice Cream
Put pumpkin into a freezer bag (flatten to evenly chill), and place in freezer for a short time until it’s icy but not fully frozen.
Meanwhile, mix milk, spices, and sugar in a blender. Add pumpkin and blend just until mixed. Add ice cream and blend on high speed (stopping twice to scrape down sides) till everything is just barely mixed.
Pour into glasses. Enjoy!
