The flavor of pumpkin is everywhere: Cakes, cookies, coffee, and even cocktails. I’ve seen the flavor in and on all kinds of recipes and it makes me happy. The pumpkin explosion means that the heat of summer is over, the leaves are changing, and the holidays are on their way!
One of my favorite ways to add pumpkin to my pre-holiday season cheer is to mix it with my other favorite treat, ice cream! Pumpkin shakes are a favorite in my house, and anytime I can add a twist to them I’m even happier. Check out my five favorite pumpkin milkshake recipes and add them to your must crave list!
