Pumpkin Pie Milkshake

Pumpkin Pie Milk Shake

The Best Pumpkin Pie Milk Shake

If you love Pumpkin Pie and you love Milk Shakes, then this Pumpkin Pie Milk Shake is you’re new go to recipe because it’s incredibly easy and delicious.  It’s typically a seasonal ice cream shake that is advertised and sold, in restaurants everywhere, based on the ripening of Pumpkins in the Fall.  Even Weiner Schnitzel has had it on their Menu for years and they taste great.  But, we don’t want to buy their’s, we want to make our own and it’s really easy to do so.

Pumpkin Pie Milk Shake

After all, it is a Pumpkin Pie Milk Shake

To make this Pumpkin Pie Milk Shake, I don’t care if you like to cook down your own pumpkin or if you like to buy it in a can.  You’re still going to need the other basic Pumpkin Pie ingredients to pull off this shake, if you’re making it from scratch.  There is, however, a simple cheat that I introduce in the video.  If you already have a premade pie or have some left over from your Thanksgiving holiday this year, you can add that to the Ice Cream, instead of just the pie filling, and it will still turn out great.  You’ll even get the added bonus of that Cookie Crust blended in with it.  If you think that sounds crazy, just think about a Cookies and Cream Milk Shake for just a moment and let that sink in.

Pumpkin Pie Milk Shake Ingredients:

1 qt Ice Cream
1 cup Milk
1 cup Pumpkin Pie Filling or 8 to 10 oz pumpkin pie slice

Pumpkin Pie Filling Ingredients:

2 lbs Cooked Pumpkin
2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1 tsp Ground Ginger
1/2 tsp Ground Clove
1 tsp Salt

Eggs are optional. I don’t add them personally, because I’m not baking, but it wouldn’t hurt the milk shake and it would even add more flavor. Just think Egg Nog.  So if you want to add them, the recipe calls for 3.  Just watch the short video tutorial for this Pumpkin Pie Milk Shake and I’ll show you how easy this is to make.

Meat, Cheese and Crackers

As you may or may not know, my family and I celebrated my wife’s Birthday this last weekend.  I received such a good response from some of you on Facebook, wishing my wife a Happy Birthday, that I decided to share one of the things I did for her.  And since it pertains to food I thought you might enjoy this.

As you can see in the photo above, I’ve got 2 plates covered with Cured Meats, Crackers and Cheese.  Which in most places around the world, it can really eat a hole in your wallet.  I mean, it’s no secret that cured meats and cheese can be very pricey.  Especially if you start getting exotic.  Where I live, for example, I can buy 4 oz. of Prosciutto for about $10 bucks.  But, that’s virtually $40 dollars a pound!  Are you kidding me?

So am I telling you that’s what I spent for each one of these cured meats?  No, I’m not and I didn’t even come close to that kind of expense.  The Great thing about food is nobody wants it to go to waste.  So if you hit the markets when they’re in rotation, you’re going to save your self a ton of money.

Another example, in the above photo I have two different Salami’s; Genoa and Boars Head Black Pepper Salami.  Both are a half pound each and were marked down 50%.  The Prosciutto was only 2 dollars for 3 oz.  But at full price, on any other day, I would’ve spent $20 bucks just for what you see on the plate and when it was all said and done, I walked out the door paying only 1/3 that price.

Now when it comes to these Cheese’s the price continues to soar. That is, unless you can pick these up on rotation too, and you can.  The funny thing about cheese, however, is you can’t really tell when it goes bad because it stinks when you buy it.  So you’re completely at the mercy of the attendants that swapping out the prices to keep up with the expiration dates.

Between these five cheese’s alone one could spend $40 to $50 dollars all together.  Some of these slices normally range between $8 and $13 bucks a piece.  There’s a Fromager D’affinois Cheese that is very mild and Creamy(top left), a Port Salute(Orange Label) that is mild and creamy as well just a slighly different taste.  The Blue Cheese is obvious, you either like it or you don’t.  The English White Stilton with Blueberry interesting because it’s very sweet and similar to the taste of cheese cake.  And last but not least, the Jarlsberg lite, which is just a fancy way of saying “Deli Swiss”.  And if you’re wondering what’s in the middle, those are my Marinated and Roasted Cherry Tomatoes!

So the night before my wife’s Birthday, we started celebrating each others company with the peace and quiet of the house(after we put the kids to bed), the widescreen with Netflix, a cheap box of wine and some very expensive Meats and Cheese’s that I bought for practically nothing.  And just so you know, I’m not a cheap bastard, I just know how to live and moments like these are priceless! 😉
