I made these over the weekend – but I’ve just been bad about getting it posted up here for you guys to see – so sorry about that! And go figure – right after I make a FROZEN dessert, we have record setting cold days here in Ohio. Oh well, you can win them all, right?
Anyways – I’ve been dying for a good milkshake lately – but I’m not looking for something to “unhealthy” and I usually can’t get that silky smooth “milkshake” texture without using a high fat milk – and I didn’t want to do that either. So I started playing around with some options, and I finally created a pretty simple and delicious Pumpkin Pie Milkshake (and of course, it’s totally vegan!).
With the days getting shorter there’s less time after work (when there is time) to get pictures in the natural light! Basically that means I’m going to need to be getting my food photography “studio” set up VERY soon, and get better at taking pictures in artificial light! I’m thinking that once I move into a new apartment, I’m going to have a space to dedicated to taking pictures of food!
Hey don’t laugh – I really like taking pictures of food, it’s fun!
BUT, back to the recipe! It’s quick, easy, the texture is SPOT ON and it tastes delicious! Plus it’s a really clean recipe too – I wouldn’t feel guilty drinking this at all.
So without further ado – Vegan Pumpkin Pie Milkshakes!
- 1½ Cups Pumpkin Purée (or 1 Can)
- 1½ Cups Non-Dairy Milk
- 2 Bananas
- 2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
- 1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
- 8-10 Ice Cubes (About 2 Cups of Ice)
- Optional: 2 Vegan Graham Cracker Sheets
- Put everything in a blender.
- Blend until smooth.
- Enjoy with a straw - all milkshakes are better with a straw!
Vegan graham crackers can be bought special, or you can look for accidentally vegan brands - I found some at Kroger! While they aren't the healthiest - it's a milkshake, and I think it's okay to indulge from time to time. Still a heck of a lot healthier then most milkshakes!
