A month or so ago I was reading some of my favorite food blogs and I came across a post on Fashionably Foodie– one of my favorite blogs and saw that Rachelle had posted a recipe for Pumpkin Pie Milkshakes.  I usually love just about everything she posts but my first thought when I saw this post was  – Yuck!  Athough I love my milkshakes I don’t like pumpkin pie and the thought of a piece of pie in a milkshake was just a little too wierd for me – sorry Rachelle.

Well, in October during one of my trips to Utah to see the college kids we had dinner at a little “hole in the wall” hamburger place in downtown Provo, right off Center Street, called Sammy’s.


Sammy’s had amazing hamburgers and great beer batter fries!  Yum!

And also on the menu were Pie Shakes!.   There they were again – what’s the deal?  I had never heard of Pie Shakes and now I had seen them twice within a few weeks!

Well – I couldn’t let the opportunity pass me by and I ordered one.  A oreo mint pie shake.

The presentation was great and it tasted great too!  Pie Shakes – not too bad!  And just in case you are wondering as my friend Sherra did – yes, they put the whole piece of pie in the blender with ice cream – crust and all!

So maybe Rachelle’s recipe for Pumpkin Pie Milkshakes wasn’t so strange after all?!

I decided I didn’t want to wait until we had leftover Thanksgiving pumpkin pie to give it a try so – shhh – don’t tell anyone, but I bought a frozen Sara Lee Pumpkin Pie!  I baked the pie and then cut it into slices and froze it again.

I chopped up the frozen pie and threw it in the blender along with ice cream, milk and a little sugar and blended it up!

Guess what – Rachelle was right – it is awesome!!  Remember,  I don’t even like pumpkin pie but a pumpkin pie milkshake is amazing!

Of course being the cook that she is, Rachelle made her pumpkin pie from scratch – including the crust!  I am sure her pumpkin pie milkshakes were better than mine because of that but I have to say – the quick and easy version was pretty great too!

So when you have some leftover pumpkin pie this week – try something new!  Pop it in the freezer and then make yourself a Pumpkin Pie Milkshake – you won’t regret it!!  The possibilities are endless – Banana Cream Pie Shakes, Chocolate Cream, etc….

    We had a house full of college kids last night – ours and some of their friends. They ate their way through a whole batch of snickerdoodles so I pulled the frozen pumpkin pie out of the freezer and made them a couple of batches of Pumpkin Pie Milkshakes and they LOVED them – they were a huge hit!

    THANKS. I love you Google. I have so much damn pumpkin pie leftover from the holidays, I definitely needed something new to do with it.

    This was a winner at my house this Thanksgiving. We hosted a party this weekend with lots of teens to help eat some of our dessert leftovers and while they were skeptical at first about a pie shake it quickly became one of the popular dessert. Thanks Leigh Anne for sharing this yummy treat idea.


  1. […] My favorite Girl Scout cookie hands down is Thin Mints.  I buy boxes of them and stash them in the freezer.  Thin Mints are best eaten frozen.  So that got me to thinking.  If they are so good frozen, what would they be like in a milk shake?  I was first introduced to baked goods in milk shakes by Sammy’s in Provo Utah.  They use both cupcakes and pies.  I have even made my own version at home with a Pumpkin Pie Shake.
