Mini Pumpkin Milkshakes | Family Economics
Every fall I find myself with a sudden urge to see how many things I can cook, bake, or whip up using canned pumpkin. Desserts seem like the ‘food group’ I gravitate towards when dreaming up new pumpkin-y recipes like these mini pumpkin milkshakes. They are so creamy and taste like your favorite milkshake just collided with a pumpkin pie. They’re rich, so making them in mini form seems to be the perfect choice. Served up in mini glasses also make them adorable to offer to guests or little ones during your next gathering or special dinner.
The perfect amount of pumpkin, creamy vanilla ice cream, that nostalgic malt flavor, all topped with whipped cream – what’s not to love?
