This weekend it finally felt like fall.
The weather was perfect. We went to the pumpkin patch. I didn’t set an alarm. We built a bonfire. I made pumpkin recipes. And I have to share my favorite. Pumpkin Bourbon Milkshake. Woah. I know, I know. Keep reading:
This recipe is so easy. All you do is add all the ingredients and blend. You can also add 1/2 cup of cream for a thicker consistency. It’s up to you!
Graeter’s is the best ice cream you can buy at a grocery store. I am not biased, this is just true. And if you haven’t had it, try the raspberry dark chocolate.
I am not huge on the whole dairy thing. Why a milkshake, you ask? I don’t think I need to answer that question. But I do substitute soy milk instead of dairy milk. You can also use almond milk or coconut milk.
So the nice liquor store man suggested this type of Bourbon. I liked the label so I was game. We tried a little before putting it in the blender, and it was nothing like Woodford Reserve (I tried to convince John to let us use his Woodford Reserve) but apparently you don’t blend Woodford with milkshake. Therefore, this bourbon did the job.
This milkshake is deliciously pumpkiny. I highly recommend drinking it around a fire pit because the warm fire and cold milkshake is an amazingly fall experience. I love the change of seasons, don’t they just make you happy?
