Hannah’s Pumpkin Pie Milkshakes AKA: Nirvana

Pumpkin pie probably isn’t the first thing you might think of for a summer treat, but milkshakes certainly are, right?  My friend, Hannahbanana, at Vox posted a recipe a while ago for Pumpkin Pie Milkshakes.  Oh.  My.  Gawd.  If you like pumpkin pie, and you like milkshakes, this is just about the best thing ever invented.  Ever.  On the whole planet.  I’ve made a few minor changes to her recipe…. I use fresh roasted pumpkin rather than canned. This is not because of some need for making things more complicated than necessary, mind you…it is out of sheer circumstance.  Canned pumpkin is not available here in Canaryland.  So.  I roast my own.  Oh, and I use full-fat stuff, too. So much for that diet, huh? :P

hannahs milkshakes


2 cups vanilla ice-cream
1 cup milk
2/3 cup canned pumpkin (or fresh roasted, then drained overnight)
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (I use a blend of my own…a generous pinch of cinnamon, and a smidge of freshly grated nutmeg, ground cloves and ginger)
whipped cream to top shakes


Place all ingredients except whipped cream in a blender (reserve some of the spice mixture for garnish).
Buzz it all up, baby!
Now, distribute the milkshakes among 4 glasses. Or, if you happen to be a piggy like me, in 2.  3 max. lmao ;)
Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with spice mixture.
Prepare to taste a bit of heaven.

  1. What are you doing to me? Seriously. This is gorgeous. 4 servings? Um yeah, if I made this I would end up drinking the whole thing out of the 24oz plastic cup from my college beer pong days. LMAO

  2. On a 92 degree day those shakes are looking mighty good.

    L, you know I want nothing more than to build “the compound” so that we can all be neighbors! And hell yeah…Billy can whip up some pizzas for the men and kids…we’ll eat all the good stuff. MWA-ha-haaaaaaa! (I’d say that A would cook up something…but…unless they all love ham and cheese sandwiches….lmfao)
