Pumpkin Milkshake

The temperature is warm around here but there's also an exciting sense of fall...leaves are covering the sidewalk, pumpkins are set out on porches, and the coffee shops advertise flavors like cinnamon and maple. Although I don't believe ice cream needs to be reserved only for warm days, this pumpkin milkshake is the perfect treat when you have the best of both worlds...warm weather in the fall! It's ridiculously simple and oh so delicious. Why not have one for dessert this week?


3 cups vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup pureed pumpkin
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
ground cinnamon for garnish
whipped cream (optional)

Add ice cream, pureed pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spice to a blender. Pour into glass. Garnish with whipped cream and cinnamon. Serve immediately.
