This Pumpkin Pie Shake is the perfect way to use up leftover pumpkin pie. If you don’t have leftover pie, make or buy a pie just so you can make Pumpkin Pie Shakes!
The first time I saw a pumpkin pie shake on a menu, I thought, YUCK! I love my milkshakes, but I don’t like pumpkin pie. And the thought of a piece of pie in a milkshake was just a little too weird for me. Well, I have quickly changed my tune!!
I first saw the idea of a pie shake on the menu at a restaurant in Provo, Utah. They had all different flavors and combos. The first one I ever tried was an Oreo Mint Pie Shake and it was delish. I discovered that the idea of combining a piece of pie and a milkshake was pretty much brilliant. They put the whole piece of pie, crust and all, into the blender with ice cream.
So maybe the idea of a Pumpkin Pie Shake wasn’t so strange after all?!
How to make a Pumpkin Pie Shake
I decided I didn’t want to wait until we had leftover Thanksgiving pumpkin pie to give it a try so I bought a frozen pumpkin pie! First, 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 blended it up!
Guess what? It is awesome!! Remember, I don’t even like pumpkin pie but a pumpkin pie shake is amazing! For me, it is the texture of pumpkin pie I don’t like but I like the flavor so a pumpkin pie milkshake is perfect.
You can also use pumpkin pie made from scratch. This would be a fun way to enjoy your leftover Thanksgiving pie. But the quick and easy store bought pie is pretty delicious too!
So when you have some leftover pumpkin pie – try something new! Pop it in the freezer and then make yourself a Pumpkin Pie Shake – you won’t regret it!! The possibilities are endless – Banana Cream Pie Shakes, Chocolate Cream Pie Shakes, and Coconut Cream Pie Shakes just to name a few! If you have other pies leftover from Thanksgiving, give them a try too!
Just top the milkshake with some whipped cream, caramel sauce and a little piece of pumpkin pie!
Then grab a spoon and dig in!
