Warm pumpkin pie in the form of a milkshake! Dairy free, low in sugar, and totally indulgent tasting!
I’ve been an almond milk drinker for awhile now..a long while, I can’t even remember the last time I drank dairy milk. So when Silk approached me about the Taste Challenge, converting someone into an almond milk drinker, I hopped right on it!
Last Fall, when I stayed with my mom for a month before we moved, I brought almond milk into her house..she kind of looked at me sideways, but stuck with her cream. Within the first week, I had her trying it in smoothies and lattes, and she loved how much creamier and naturally sweeter it made everything! Im proud to say, she now keeps a container in her fridge at all times!
Now, for this challenge, I decided to take on my husband, who adamantly has been protesting for years about my love for vanilla almond milk. He says at least once a week, “I don’t know how you drink that stuff”. Blasphemy, I know.
But since, I couldn’t get him to drink it straight out, I had to trick him into it, kind of like how I have to trick and sneak veggies into my kids meals once in awhile. 😉
Every Fall, he begs me for this milkshake. It takes a little more work because it requires fresh pumpkin, not the canned kind. (& sorry, but in this one instance, it makes a difference.) So! I made it for him recently when i knew he was on his way home from work, but instead of using cream and lots of sugar, I switched it up to almond milk and lightened up the sugar. I was nervous that it would lose its sweet, creaminess, the best part of a milkshake, but it didn’t! It was better, because not only was it still creamy, but it wasn’t so thick and heavy sitting in our bellies.
So, he walked in and I handed him a nice warm glass of this Pumpkin Pie Milkshake. He says “oh, finally! thank you!” perfect and delicious, as usual, thanks babe’
Take that. After I revealed my secret, he’ll never diss on it again! Safe to say he loves it now! 😉 Oh & my kids couldn’t get enough either!
