I am not a typical pumpkin fan. I haven’t found a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie that I like yet. But, I LOVE milkshakes, so I figured I’d give this one a try.

Bourbon Pumpkin Pie Milkshakes

makes 2 shakes

2 cups vanilla ice cream  (another 1/2 scoop for those who really love ice cream)

1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup cream or half and half

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

2/3 cup pureed pumpkin  (I used canned pumpkin and blended it a bit more)

1/2 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice

1/3 cup graham cracker crumbs

2-3 ounces of bourbon   (If you are not a drinker and for the kiddo’s, substitute with Chocolate syrup, and another squirt for taste)

frosting + sprinkles (or cinnamon sugar) for glasses

For directions and all the yummy particulars, check out How Sweet It Is.  The above photo and others are from her lovely blog.  The shake is indeed delicious.

Pumpkin Dip

On my last post here at Portland Mama I shared that one of my favorite fall combinations is apples and caramel.
