What happens when you put vanilla ice cream, egg nog, and a piece of pumpkin pie in a blender? Well, recently I decided to find out.

Egg nog, ice cream, and pie

I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin, but I will have a slice of pumpkin pie about once a year with a dollop of whipped cream. It’s obligatory, and I do enjoy it.

Lately I’ve been craving milkshakes all the time. I don’t think I can really call this a pregnancy craving, I think it’s more the case that I’ve remembered how delicious they are and I have an excuse to indulge. And so I’ve been indulging.

Pumpkin pie

Adding the eggnog

I’ve seen many recipes for pumpkin pie milkshakes made with pumpkin puree and spices blended with ice cream and milk, but could not find a recipe that used an actual piece of pumpkin pie. Has really no one ever tried this before? Would it work?


You bet!

And using eggnog in place of milk was a stroke of pure genius, if I do say so myself. This milkshake has a smooth creamy texture, and a hint of pumpkin pie. It satisfied both my yearly slice of pumpkin pie and milkshake cravings.

Probably the best thing about it is it’s super easy to throw together. This would be a perfect day-after-Thanksgiving dessert, when it’s likely you’ll have all the ingredients left over from the day before. Mix things up, instead of slicing yourself another piece of pumpkin pie, why not blend it up with your ice cream and sip it through a straw instead?

Blend together the pumpkin pie pieces, vanilla ice cream, and egg nog in a blender. Add additional eggnog if needed to achieve desired consistency. Pour into a tall glass, top with whipped cream and a sprinkling of ground cinnamon. Serve immediately.

    if I tried this I would substitute some peppermint candy canes for the pumpkin pie, & use that with the egg~nog & vanilla ice cream. that would be a fun thing to serve at a christmas party. maybe I’ll do that this year. that sounds good.
