The secret to this delicious Pumpkin Milkshake is it’s simplicity. There aren’t many ingredients here, and they are magic when blended together.
Why do some memories stick with us our whole lives?
I’ve never forgotten one from when I was 14 – that awkward stage when you’re not old enough to do anything.
My Mom was driving us to Skagg’s Drugstore on Main Street in her moss green Chevy Impala.
I was bored and miserable, which was my full-time job back then.
I perked up once I got to the perfume and cosmetics aisle.
I bought a small bottle of Golden Autumn by Prince Matchabelli – after lavishly spraying it all over myself with the tester – and some roll-on lip gloss using my allowance.
As I walked out the front door, a small boy stopped and told me I smelled good.
I was taken off-guard by this – red faced, too – but told him thanks.
I’m pretty sure I flipped my hair a few times as I walked back to the car, but I can’t be sure 🙂
My senses felt sharper – there was an intoxicating smell of wood smoke in the air. The October sky was cold and bright blue with huge puffy clouds. The trees were heavy with red, orange and yellow leaves.
Not sure why this sticks with me – was it the kid or weather or the smell of Golden Autumn, but I won’t forget it.
This Pumpkin Milkshake holds a bit of nostalgia too.
Though seasonal ice cream flavors are in stores now, when I was a kid we made them the “real” way.
Just good quality ice cream, pumpkin, vanilla, milk and a pinch of cinnamon.
Perfection in a tall, stylish glass with trendy straws.
Try scooping frozen whipped topping as a garnish for a something different…
- For Two Servings:
- One cup best quality vanilla ice cream
- 2/3 cup milk
- 1/2 cup solid pack pumpkin (I like Libby's)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice, plus more for garnish
- Frozen whipped topping, slightly defrosted
- Put all ingredients in a blender except for the frozen whipped topping and blend on high speed until completely smooth. You can add a little more milk if needed to make the mixture easy to pour.
- Pour into glasses and serve with a small scoop of frozen whipped topping on top as a garnish, with a pinch of cinnamon on top.
