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.
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
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.
Brain Hemorrhage Shots are a real fun and scary way to start your Halloween this year. This drink has just a few ingredients that make it very tasty and sweet so I think you’ll enjoy this little recipe. Peach Schnapps goes in first, followed by Bailey’s and Cream to give it the floating brain in formaldehyde look. Then you drizzle a light layer of Grenadine over the top to give it a bloody illusion. But, you don’t want to drop in too much because the cherry flavor will overpower the drink and make it taste like cough syrup if you add too much.
I’ve also included two links for those that like to barbecue on Halloween.
Being served a dressed up Pina Colada is Awesome. It’s refreshing and it makes you feel like you’re on vacation somewhere if you’re not already. Making one your self can be fun, however, side fruit and umbrella’s aren’t really necessary. By the time I get everything blended, I just want to drink it already. So here is my version of the Pina Colada.
First, it’s all about fresh Pineapple. If you’re planning on using pineapple in a can, put it back, put it back! I’ve been scoring fresh Pineapples lately for under 3 bucks, so there is no reason to make a crappy mug of dead pulp. Besides, you will NEVER get enough flavor, or at least the flavor you are expecting out of a can of pineapple; and just so you know, I am never taking the credit for a recipe someone half ass followed. That being said, follow these instructions to a “T” and your Pina Colada will kick ass!
Secondly, you have got to find yourself a can of Coco Lopez. They aren’t your average size cans and it can usually be found in 1 of 3 different locations of your grocery, if not your liquor store; Mexican, Asian or with the Mixers. P.S., don’t ever buy the Pina Colada Mixer, it’s a mistake, trust me. And, just in case you don’t know, Coco Lopez is Coconut Cream. Be absolutely certain that you don’t confuse it with coconut milk because it isn’t anywhere close to the same thing. Okay?
Now, that we’ve covered the important basics of the recipe let’s just dive right in shall we…
Pina Colada Ingredients:
1/3 of a fresh chopped Pineapple
2 cups Ice
½ cup Rum
1 1/4cup Pineapple Juice
½ cup Heavy Whipping Cream or Half and Half
3 oz Coconut Cream
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Combine and blend all of the ingredients together and add more ice, juice or rum as needed. Ice is for the thickness, juice to thin it out and Rum just for fun! 😉 Then serve and enjoy your Pina colada!
