Countdown to the Holidays: Pumpkin Pie Milkshakes
As we rev up to chow down for the holidays, Hungry Nation will highlight some of our favorite seasonal recipes from our creators.
Though no one knows for sure if the pilgrims actually baked one for the inaugural meal, we can all agree that it wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie. But today, we answer the eternal question: why eat a pie, when you can drink it?
Thank(sgiving)fully, we have Amy Cao and her Stupidly Simple Snacks to answer that question. Whether you’re averse to baking or crunched for time, Amy’s Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream Shake recipe is a perfectly sweet solution. All you need is milk, ice cream, canned pumpkin pie filling, sugar, some spice and you’ll have a cold drink that’s oh-so-nice. All the flavors, with a fraction of the labor.
We can’t help but wonder if other pies would work for this Stupidly Simple Snack. We’re thinking baked apples, nutmeg and graham crackers might make a delicious alternative “Pie Shake.” Pecan Pie might be a trickier seasonal standard to adapt, but we’re open to suggestions. So go ahead, tell us: Which pies do you think would make a great milkshake?
