The Best Pumpkin Pie to Use
When it comes to making the perfect pumpkin pie milkshake, the choice of pumpkin pie is crucial. We highly recommend using a slice of our Cream Cheese Pumpkin Pie. This pie is the real deal, with a rich and creamy texture that blends beautifully into a milkshake.
The cream cheese adds a luxurious touch, and the blend of cinnamon and nutmeg creates a flavor that's truly out of this world. It's the perfect way to elevate your pumpkin milkshake recipe and turn it into an ultimate pumpkin treat.
While you can obviously use any leftover pumpkin pie you have around, you can also use canned Pumpkin Pie Mix. Add ⅓ cup in place of the pie slice. It won't be as good, but it will do in a pinch.

No, but you can use canned pumpkin pie mix as a substitute. However, using a slice of our Cream Cheese Pumpkin Pie will give you the best pumpkin pie shake. Sub out your pie slice for ⅓ cup Pumpkin Pie mix, and add an extra pinch of cinnamon and a splash of vanilla.
Start with ½ cup of milk, and feel free to add a little milk until it reaches your desired consistency. Whether you use whole milk, skim milk, or almond milk, it's all about finding your perfect ratio.
If you're feeling adventurous, you could turn it into a boozy milkshake with a shot of Rumchata!
While vanilla bean ice cream or creamy vanilla ice cream is the traditional choice, substituting it with chocolate ice cream could be a good idea for chocolate lovers. It'll add a new twist to this fall treat.
