Pumpkin Spice Milkshake is a sweet treat after dinner.

So, I have a very picky eater. He’s not adventurous, doesn’t care that he doesn’t like things and can’t even be bribed to try new foods, except sweets. There was a time when I could bribe. One day last year, he comes home from school and announces he likes pumpkin pie. Probably the one thing I’m not all that fond of. So, to capitalize on this new found like I’ve been trying new recipes and ideas that use pumpkin. Some were hits, some were misses.

Then it hit me! Try a milkshake. A pumpkin spice milkshake. So I did and in true picky child form he announced, “Well, it isn’t terrible” and then proceeded to drink the whole milkshake. For this milkshake I added a bit of my homemade pumpkin pie spice blend because I feel canned pumpkin can use a little dressing up. I started with a minimum knowing my son’s tastes. Taste this milkshake as you go along making it. Add more, or less, for your tastes of both pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin.

Pumpkin Spice Milkshake is a delicious fall treat.
