Halloween Pumpkin Milkshake

So we will fully admit that we love a good milkshake, and that a spiced one is possibly the best (besides strawberry). This is a simple recipe with all the fall flavors in it, we use soy ice cream in this to make it a bit healthier, and because milk can be very hard on your stomach. One special thing we have added is instead of the whip cream you expect, we have made an almond whip cream, which has the slight taste of marzipan, and is our new addiction.  The 11th day of Halloween comes in style with a delectable shake!

Ingredients: Milkshake
6 tbsp whole milk
7 scoops soy vanilla ice cream
2/3 cup pumpkin puree
Pinch of cinnamon
Pinch ground nutmeg

Whip cream:
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tbsp confectioners sugar
1 tsp almond extract

So simple, take your milkshake ingredients and blend! Yeyuh!!

For the whip cream take your cream, add the sugar and almond extract and using an electric whisk, whisk it together until it starts to form into a thick cream. You don’t want to over whip, you want it to be just right, so that the cream can form a bit of a peak, but isn’t overly stiff.

Using a sandwich bag, pour the whip cream in, cut one of the corners off, and use it to top your milkshake with whip cream…top with some cinnamon…and drink!! Yum


  1. that looks yummy! I'm quite obssessed about pumpkin this fall, so it's great to see new recipe
