pumpkin pie milkshakes

if i told you i made a pumpkin pie just to make these milkshakes, would you believe me? well i did. homemade crust and all, just to toss in the blender. that's how dedicated i am to a pumpkin pie milkshake. (i actually prefer my pumpkin pie in the form of a milkshake.)
you can make a pumpkin pie, use one leftover, or buy one in the freezer case at the grocery store, but do try these, because they are dangerously delish.

if you make these milkshakes before dinner, they will be nice and thick in the freezer and ready for dessert. this is the trick to getting thick homemade milkshakes without having special mixing equipment like restaurants do.

  1. I'm with you. I'd totally rather have my pumpkin pie in a shake. I think I'm going to have to make one just for that purpose, too :)

  2. I'm on it! Monday night here I come!!

  3. i'm not a pumpkin pie fan, but i LOVE pumpkin every thing else, so maybe i'll have to make a pumpkin pie just for this!!! yum!

  4. Ditto what ro said. This sounds insanely good!

  5. I love pumpkin! I tagged you with a meme. I thought it would be fun to pass it along and see everyone's responses. Check out my blog and see.

  6. I had my first pie shake a couple of weeks ago in Provo - yum! So I don't like pumpkin pie but I thought I'd give these a try. I bought a frozen Sara Lee Pumpkin Pie - here is what may be a dumb questions - I have never bought a frozen pie before. Do I need to bake the pie and then refreeze before I make the shakes or can I use it frozen straight out of the box?
