Pumpkin Pie Shake

I had a little bit of pumpkin in the fridge, leftover from some sort of baking adventure and decided it would be fun to make a shake out of it.
I remembered seeing a Pumpkin Pie Shake in Cooking Light many years ago, so I looked it up and decided to go for it.
I used a combination of vanilla frozen yogurt and vanilla ice cream in this shake. I didn't have pumpkin pie spice, so I just sprinkled in some cinnamon, ground ginger, nutmeg, allspice and cloves.
I don't ever use Cool Whip, so once I poured this into glasses, I just added a tiny scoop of ice cream to top it off.

This was really good! It had great flavor and was so simple to throw together.
I love that it really did taste nice and pumpkin-y.
My family loved this shake.

We made these last weekend--so good and simple! I didn't use cool-whip either. If I had had whipping cream in my fridge I would have used that, but maybe next time. I crumbled gingersnaps on top.

Mare, I am so into these drinks. I made one, recently with orange juice, milk and frozen yogurt and vanilla extract. It was heavenly. I must try pumpkin also.

These fill a void, for me. They are filling and refreshing.

Thanks for this recipe.
