Your favorite fall drink, the pumpkin spice latte, turned into a fun milkshake! Complete with pumpkin, spice, coffee and ice cream, you’ll love this treat!
Are you a pumpkin spice latte fanatic? I definitely am, but sometimes, I want a cold treat with those classic Fall flavors. This milkshake has it all… pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, coffee and vanilla ice cream!
Okay guys, here it comes. The great divider of men and women… no, not politics, not sports, but it all comes down to, are you a pumpkin spice lover, or not? Maybe it makes me the quintessential “basic white girl”, but I just love that flavor! However, I don’t go crazy and turn EVERYTHING into pumpkin spice… I mean have you seen what’s been going on at the grocery stores lately? The pumpkin spice fairy went nuts!!
There’s one treat that I love, but don’t get too often because the nearest coffee place that shall remain nameless (it’s logo is green and white lol), isn’t all that close to me… the pumpkin spice latte. Those flavors just call to me, and I crave it often!
I’m also the kind of person who is hot like 99% of the time. Seriously, it can be the middle of January, snow on the ground, everyone else is layered up inside with sweaters, hoodies, big wool socks… yep, I’m over there in capris, no shoes and a t shirt. I’m so weird you guys!! So while I love that pumpkin pie spice flavor, I don’t always want something hot to drink. Which brings me to this beautiful concoction… the pumpkin spice latte milkshake!!! I found it in an old taste of home magazine and made some adaptations and wow… let’s just say, I drink more of these than I should!
I mean, just look at that frosty awesomeness!! To me, it tastes just like you took a famous PSL (pumpkin spice latte for those of you not obsessed like I am), and blended with vanilla ice cream. It’s perfect for an afternoon pick me up, or use decaf coffee for an evening dessert treat!
You could even add a splash of some kind of booze (like vodka maybe?) and make it an adult milkshake! Speaking of booze… I started a new project guys… another blog! I know, I’m crazy… and I definitely don’t have a lot of free time… but I really am excited about it! It’s called The 5 o’clock Chef, and you can check it out here! So far, I only have one original recipe up, the rest I’ve republished from here to get the blog going, but my hope is to publish a new post a week. There you’ll find cocktails and drinks of all kinds, plus some fun party snacks! Stop by, check it out, subscribe to my newsletter so you don’t miss any new posts, and follow me on social media if you’d like 🙂
The whipped cream and extra cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice is optional, but ohhhhh so good you guys. Especially when it starts to melt down into the milkshake and it gets even creamier than it was before. I’m craving it right now!
Obviously this isn’t a diet-friendly kind of drink, but there are a few ways you could cut down on the sugar. You could use sugar-free or no additional sugar added ice cream, and omit the granulated sugar in the pumpkin mixture. I’ve never made this with anything other than whole milk (since that’s what we drink here in the Chunky Chef household), but I’m sure it would work fine with other types of milk as well, if that’s what you prefer.
The next time you’re craving some pumpkin spice flavor, but don’t want a hot drink, give this milkshake a try! They’d be perfect for just about any occasion.

- 2 cups whole milk
- heaping 1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
- 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1 cup brewed coffee (your favorite brand)
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 4 cups vanilla ice cream
- 1 cup ice cubes
- whipped cream + pumpkin pie spice for garnish (optional)
- To a small saucepan, add milk and heat over MED heat until lightly simmering with bubbles around the edges. Transfer to mixing bowl.
- Add pumpkin, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, coffee, and vanilla extract. Whisk to combine. The hot coffee and milk will dissolve the sugar. Cover and refrigerate an hour or so, or until cold.
- To a blender, add cooled pumpkin mixture, vanilla ice cream and ice cubes. Cover and process until smooth and completely blended. Add to serving glasses, garnish with whipped cream and sprinkle with additional pumpkin pie spice if desired.
