Pumpkin Milk Shake

I really love Pumpkin Milk Shakes this time of year. In my area, Arctic Circle and Burgerville serve them and they are delicious. It's been a long time, but I think I like Burgerville's better, but it is $4.50 and who can afford that?

I attempted my own homemade version last night and it was really good. Even my hubby enjoyed it, saying it was a good substitute for th pumpkin pie that he's been requesting. I decided to share it with you, to save you $4.50 and my version is lower in fat/calories as well.

Put in blender equal parts pumpkin and vanilla ice cream (double churned) with a splash of lowfat milk, a pinch of salt, a little sugar (depending on your proportions), and generous spices, either pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon and nutmeg (I did 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 1/8 tsp. nutmeg). Blend until the right consistency, adding milk as necessary. Enjoy.
