Pumpkin is a staple this time of year. Am I right? I mean recipes for pumpkin this and pumpkin that are everywhere. And you KNOW you’re going to have some pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. It would just be wrong if you didn’t. For me, I don’t spend a lot of time on desserts at Thanksgiving. I’m too busy on the main meal. Mrs Smith’s helps me save some time with their frozen pies. Pop ’em in the oven and you’re ready to go. (For more Thanksgiving meal ideas, visit the Kraft Walmart Hub.)
But what about the next day. There’s usually one or two slices left? Sure you could just eat them. But that’s boring and doesn’t help me segue into this awesome pie milkshake.
Because this is milkshake IS awesome. And #ThankfullySweet. And easy.
First hit up Walmart for your ingredients and take a little pie selfie. And hey, the Cool Whip is right beside all the pies!
All you need is a Mrs. Smith’s pumpkin pie, Cool Whip, vanilla ice cream, milk, and a few graham crackers. Oh, and a blender of some kind.
First, bake the pie according to package directions. When it’s done you can immediately make it into a milkshake or eat some pie first, whichever. But if you eat pie first, make sure you save some for milkshake later.
I have a small personal blender, but any blender will do. Just toss in some ice cream and a piece of pie. Add milk and blend just as you would any milkshake. The only difference is this one has pie in it!
Top with Cool Whip. I used about half the container in this one milkshake. The first bit I added sunk right down to the bottom and made the milkshake overflow right out of the mason jar. So I added more – gently this time.
Then sprinkle with crushed graham crackers. Mmm!
This milkshake is smooth and flavorful! It’s a perfect cold fall treat.
