It's been awhile since I've posted a food related blog and since all I've been thinking about since I made these a few weeks ago I thought I would share.
(prepare for crappy phone pics)
This is not a genius/original idea of mine.
I'm sure there are other/better recipes out there but this one is perfect.
I truly give you pumpkin perfection.
And if your not a huge pumpkin pie or pumpkin spice flavor fan like me (hate pumpkin spice lattes with a bloody passion) you will/may still love this as much as I do.
Easy Pumpkin Pie Milkshakes
(makes 4 medium sized servings)
Breyers Vanilla Ice Cream - one 1/2 gallon carton
Small amount of whole milk (this is not a fat free dessert)
A small slice of pumpkin pie - store bought OK? Let's not get crazy and make our own from scratch.
Whipped Cream - I used the homemade recipe that I always use which is below:
(you can slap me later for making this myself - you can buy a can of whipped cream and it will almost taste the same - but not really)
If you make a pumpkin pie from scratch you're bat shit crazy but if you make the whipped cream from scratch you're still cool. Got it? OK.
Homemade Whipped Cream
1 cup of heavy whipped cream
1 tsp of vanilla
2 T of sugar
*beat until thick and creamy
Scoop the ice cream in a blender and add a very small amount of milk. Just enough milk so that the ice cream blends smoothly. Add the slice of pie and mix until you get the desired consistency. I made ours very thick. Because that's how I like it, thick (THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID, whispered my husbands voice from deep within my sub-conscience.)
Top with whipped cream and be prepared for the horrible feeling of disgust, self-loathing and guilt you will feel for weeks afterwards.
