I have so many things to be thankful for this year. My amazing husband and darling baby boy, and our new little family that I love more than anything. Our cozy little house in my favorite little big city. All of my friends, both old and new. This little corner of the internet and all of you who come to visit. I am one lucky gal.
I’m also thankful for milkshakes. This milkshake is a fun way to use up any leftover pie you may have from Thanksgiving. I’ll probably have a piece for breakfast Friday morning (because, why not?) but then I think a round of milkshakes will be in order that afternoon as I finally give in an pull out the Christmas decorations.
What are you most looking forward to this long holiday weekend (besides the big meal, of course)? The football, the Black Friday deals, a leftover turkey sandwich?
Any kind of pie
This recipe will work with any slice of pie— berry, pecan, pumpkin, chocolate, etc. Traditional pie crust or cookie crust, all will be fabulous blended up with some ice cream. A meringue-topped pie is the only kind I’m unsure about, and if you try it let me know what you think. The pie pictured in this post is cranberry pear pie, and it was just as good in a milkshake as it was by the slice.
The recipe below is more like a guideline, the idea is just to combine a piece of pie with ice cream and milk. You can’t mess it up!
This simple frosty dessert is a great way to use up leftover pie.
- 1 slice of any pie
- 2 cups vanilla ice cream
- 1 cup milk
- Whipped cream, for serving
- In a blender combine the piece of pie, vanilla ice cream, and milk. Add additional milk if necessary to achieve desired consistency. Pour into two glasses and top with sweetened whipped cream.
