Pumpkin Spice Shake

I have a deliciously sweet Pumpkin Spice Shake recipe for you today and  it’s sponsored by Socialstars in partnership with the #donthesitaste Sweet’N Low® campaign. All opinions are mine.
It’s going to be fall very soon and one of the benefits of fall in the south is that the weather is still warm into the November. 

Down here we wear sandals through the end of November, and there’s just no way I could get away with that up north. Another thing I wouldn’t be able to do in November, if I were still up north, is enjoy a Pumpkin Spice shake. The brisk northern fall has weather makes it too chilly to desire any cold beverages.

We have a few more weeks of great weather and I’ve been meaning to try some recipes that incorporate pumpkin. I’ve always been a little intimidated by the vegetable. I thought it was primarily used for pies, but after googling I’ve learned it can be used many ways.

I’m going to share several pumpkin inspired recipes this month that are easy to make and taste delicious.

Pumpkin Spice Shake (serves 4)

The first attempt at this recipe, I did not add any sweetener. I thought the sweetness from the ice-cream would be enough to sweeten the pumpkin, but it wasn’t. 

On my second attempt, I used 8 packs of Sweet’N Low® zero calorie sweetener instead of sugar, because I didn’t want to tack unnecessary calories onto this recipe. 

INGREDIENTS
  • 8 packets of Sweet’N Low® zero calorie sweetener
  • 8 scoops of vanilla ice-cream
  • 1/2 can of 100% pure Pumpkin
  • 2 tablespoons of cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons of all-spice
  • whipped cream (optional)
  • sea salt caramel syrup (optional)
INSTRUCTIONS

1. Place the first five ingredients into a blender.

3. Blend on low until everything is mixed.

4. Pour into glasses, top with whipped cream and a dash of cinnamon.

5. You can also top with sea salt caramel syrup.

My pumpkin spice shake is a delicious way to incorporate pumpkin into fun recipe this fall.
