Fall is finally officially here! How’s the weather looking in your area? Here in east Tennessee the leaves are starting to change, and we’ve had a handful of days in the ’70s…just enough of a change to make me want to start making pumpkin EVERYTHING.
One of my favorite new ways to make use of this great super food has been, of course, to turn it into a delicious dessert. And true to my style, I like to keep my time in the kitchen down to a minimum. Why use a pie pan and 45 minutes to make a pumpkin pie, for example, when I can take a few key ingredients and a blender and have a pumpkin pie milkshake in just a few minutes? 🙂
Here’s what you’ll need to recreate this super yum treat!
- 2 1/4 cup DairyPure milk
- 4 bananas (frozen is ideal)
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 cup DairyPure heavy whipping cream
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 2 graham crackers, crumbled
Combine all ingredients except for graham crackers, whipping cream and sugar in a blender and puree until smooth.
At this point, give your milkshake a taste. If you find the pumpkin flavor to be a bit overpowering, add 1 tsp vanilla extract and blend a bit more.
Pour the milkshake into 4 separate glasses and pop them in the freezer.
In a large metal bowl, combine DairyPure whipping and cream and sugar. Blend on your mixer’s highest setting to turn the mixture into whip cream. It takes about 3 minutes for it to thicken. Remember, you aren’t looking for peaks that are as stiff as a meringue!
Divide your whipped topping among your milkshakes, and then sprinkle graham crackers on top. An additional optional topping could be a sprinkle of cinnamon.
A critical component of a great recipe is great ingredients. I choose DairyPure milk for my family because of it’s exclusive 5 Point Purity Promise:
- No artificial growth hormones (“No significant difference has been shown between milk derived from cows treated with the artificial growth hormone rbST and non‐rbST‐treated cows.”)
- All milk is tested for antibiotics
- Continuously quality tested to ensure purity
- Only from cows fed a healthy diet
- Cold shipped fresh from your local dairy
I care about these matters when it comes to the milk I am offering to my family. We are really happy with our choice, as the product tastes fantastic, be it by the glass, in our cereal, or even as a component of a special treat, like a pumpkin pie milkshake. Besides, cleanup is always easier when the thing you make gets entirely consumed. 🙂 Take a moment to Learn more about DairyPure; it might be the right choice for your family, too!
