Pumpkin Pie Milkshake is Perfect for Fall!

Kelsey posted a pumpkin pie milkshake recipe from the blog We Are Not Martha on her WTF: What Tasty Food blog. Since I love pumpkin, it wasn't even 24 hours before I tried it. I'm going to post the recipe below, but I did make changes to fit it into my plan. I left off the caramel drizzle and I left out the graham crackers because I didn't want to splurge on things I don't care about anyway. I mean, I love caramels, but the point of this shake is the pumpkin, and I don't eat caramels on my pumpkin pie...I'm a purist. I used sugar free vanilla ice cream and vanilla soy milk. Delicious! (Have I mentioned how much I adore Kelsey? I just love that girl!)

Here is the We Are Not Martha link and recipe:  http://www.wearenotmartha.com/2011/09/pumpkin-pie-milkshake/


Pumpkin Pie Milkshakes
  • 10 caramels
  • 1 T water
  • 1 1/2 C vanilla ice cream
  • 1 C milk
  • 1 1/2 C pumpkin
  • 2 t cinnamon
  • 1/4 t nutmeg
  • 4 graham crackers


1) Put caramels in a small saucepan with 1 T of water on medium-low heat. Keep stirring the caramels until they melt.
2) Put the ice cream, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, and 3 of the graham crackers into a blender. Blend until smooth.
3) Put the fourth graham cracker in a ziplock bag and crush it into crumbs. Wet the rims of two glasses and place them in the graham cracker crumbs to coat.
4) Pour milkshake in glass and drizzle caramel sauce over the top.


  1. My version came in at 5 WW pointsplus.

  2. i had a pumpkin smoothie today too! My starbucks made it with coffee, pumpkin spice, skim milk, protein powder, and ice. So yum!

  3. I was thinking about putting coffee in mine to make it more like a Starbucks, but I wanted to try it in its original form (minus those pesky graham crackers) first. I'm going to make a banana smoothie for dessert tonight. Anything fun to add to it?
