I’ve really been slacking on the pumpkin treats this year. And I blame the weather for that. It hasn’t really been that cold, minus that one snow we had – you know, when the snow all melted as soon as the sun came up. So I haven’t really been in the mood to bake fall goodies.

Luckily, Nicole and I decided on pumpkin as the theme for our weekly drink post so I was forced to buy a can of pumpkin. Expect more pumpkin soon!

But anyway, I made a pumpkin pie milkshake! Omg y’all, it was good. I’m totally not a milkshake kind of girl but I would drink this one without complaint. Even the kids, who don’t dig the pumpkin these days, drank it up and then begged for more. It’s especially good with a gingersnap on top to dip into the shake. Just trust me on that. I made these but store-bought works just the same.

Nicole made a pumpkin pie smoothie! Check it out!
