Mini Pumpkin Milkshakes | Family Economics


Tori Tait 


Every fall I find myself with a sudden urge to see how many things I can cook, bake, or whip up using canned pumpkin. Desserts seem like the ‘food group’ I gravitate towards when dreaming up new pumpkin-y recipes like these mini pumpkin milkshakes. They are so creamy and taste like your favorite milkshake just collided with a pumpkin pie. They’re rich, so making them in mini form seems to be the perfect choice. Served up in mini glasses also make them adorable to offer to guests or little ones during your next gathering or special dinner.

Mini Pumpkin Milkshakes 

The perfect amount of pumpkin, creamy vanilla ice cream, that nostalgic malt flavor, all topped with whipped cream – what’s not to love?

Mini Pumpkin Milkshakes

Prep: 10 minutes

3/4 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/2 cup original flavor malted milk powder
1/2 cup milk

In blender combine pumpkin puree, malted milk powder, milk, and vanilla ice cream. Blend until smooth and then pour into small or mini glasses. Top with whipped cream before serving.
