Jump to Recipe

I mean, tis the season for pumpkin right?? How about simple pumpkin milkshakes? I promise these take way less time than the pumpkin bread and are just about as tasty!!

Time and Ingredients

How fast does this recipe come together? I mean, how fast will your blender work? It is really a matter of scooping things in and blending it up. That’s it! How many ingredients? 5. Well, 6 if you count the whipped cream on top. So, super fast and minimal ingredients. Are you sold yet?

Making the Pumpkin Milkshakes

Start with a vanilla ice cream base. Breyers is a fav around here, so that is what I used.

Hopefully, you are able to find pumpkin puree in your area, if you not then you can always roast your own pumpkin. I don’t have a tutorial of my own written up yet, y’all it takes a long time to write up these posts :), so here is a great one.

For spices on this milkshake you have 2 options. 1 use pumpkin pie spice, 2 use a blend of spices like I did. I will include both options below.

The milk will be your variable here. I love a super thick milkshake, so I didn’t add too much. You might like it a little more thin. In which case, add more.

Then for another little punch of fall, add in some pure maple syrup. This isn’t totally necessary, but it is really good! The hard work is over. Blend it all up and you are done!

Finished Pumpkin Milkshake

We love topping our shakes with a good dollop of whip cream. I mean, may as well go all out, right? Another sprinkle of cinnamon is a good idea as well.

If you are looking for other drink ideas, I have quite a few. I should note they are all nonalcoholic drinks too!

  • blender


  • 1-1.5 quart vanilla ice cream
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice If you don't have pumpkin pie spice, use 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves, and 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • milk, the amount will depend on consistency you like for your shake
  • whipped cream optional, but really good on top!


  • Add vanilla ice cream to blender. I used almost the whole container of my ice cream, but this will depend on how big your blender is. Now, add in the pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice, maple syrup, and start with a 1/2 cup milk to start. Blend and add more milk and maple syrup as needed. I don't think it needs much more sweetener with the maple syrup, but you may want more.
    Now, you can use big steins like we did, or normal sized cups. If you use the big steins, you will get 3 from this batch, smaller cups will get you 6 milkshakes.
    If you want to go all out, top with whipped cream and even a drizzle of caramel sauce. I left that out this time.
    Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!!
