Whenever you get milkshakes, you think of the traditional chocolate, vanilla, oh and strawberry. It’s always nice to try something different instead of ordering the same flavor every single time. The first time I tasted the wonderous Pumpkin Pie Milkshake was at Fuddruckers, a restaurant well known for their fresh and juicy burgers. It was their highlighted dessert around the October fall season when pumpkin spice is usually found as a special everywhere from the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte to Einstein Bagels’s Pumpkin Spice Muffin. A picture of the irresistible shake was displayed on this huge sign near the entrance and looked oh so yummy, so I decided I must have one! The shake was pure perfection and to me seemed the best way to enjoy pumpkin pie at any time of the year.
Pumpkin Pie MilkShake (makes 2)
- 1 pint of vanilla ice cream (amount depends on how thick you want the shake to be)
- 1 1/2 cups of unsweetened pumpkin puree
- 1/2 cup of whole milk
- 3 sheets of graham crackers
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice
- pinch of fine sea salt
- Blend all the ingredients together until at a consistency suitable for you.
The second time around that I made it, I decided to put it in a fancy cup, along with whipping cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice to top it off
Now something else I’ve discovered is Cherry Lime Soda. It’s very simple and can be compared to Sonic’s Cherry Limeade (though I think this one is better because it is healthier and you know what is going in it). All you do is get a can of sparkling water-any brand- and add the syrup of your choice. I bought the syrup from Sam’s Club though it can probably be found elsewhere.
