About this recipe: A deliciously creamy milk shake that's quick and easy to make. Pumpkin puree is blended together with with ice cream, milk and spices, then topped with whipped cream. It's so good, you could serve it as a dessert!
I think the low ratings on this recipe can be attributed to people thinking they will get something rich and sweet like pumpkin pie or a fast food chain pumpkin milkshake, but this is really good. I agree it needs sweetener, so I added 1 1/2 Tbsp Splenda and that did the job perfectly (as would the same amount of sugar I presume). I also just used pumpkin pie spice instead of all the separate spices and I used approximately double (about 2 tsp for the whole recipe). It turned out pretty good and my mom, who doesn't like anything out of the ordinary, really enjoyed it as well. - 26 Nov 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
fantastic! i was looking for a recipe like this and finally found it. but make sure you take a look at how many it serves... i didn't; and made way too much! otherwise it is incredible. i do suggest adding a few ice cubes in there to make it a bit colder. all the blending warms it up, even with the ice cream in it. also i left out the mace, i didn't have any and it was perfect without it. - 31 Aug 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Eight thumbs up from all the members in my family. Even my husband, which surprized me. No mace, so I used 1 1/2 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice. I made no other changes. This is very similar to a pumpkin pie shake which is beyond awesome. My kids thought I was the coolest mom ever. - 20 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
