We have reached a stage of the year best described as “seasonal confusion.” It feels a little bit summer, a little bit fall, and 100% a reason to sip a frosty Pumpkin Milkshake.

On the summer side, I never want to put away my flip flops. I’m still savoring fresh tomatoes, and I might just cry when the last juicy peach leaves the produce shelves.

At the same time, however, I’d be fibbing if I didn’t admit that these Vegan Pumpkin Muffins and this Pumpkin Granola have me craving warm fall flavors.

About This Pumpkin Milkshake

Every year, I feel guilty rushing fall, because summer feels so short. Can’t I have my fall and my summer too?

This Pumpkin Milkshake recipe says YES. It’s the cozy flavors of fall transformed into a cool, creamy treat that’s perfect for these last warm days.

A lightened-up version of a pumpkin pie milkshake, this healthy pumpkin shake recipe tastes anything but!

Here’s the scoop, er, sip on the ingredients:

  • Canned pumpkin. Hello, vitamins!
  • Frozen banana. My trick to making the shake taste thick, creamy, and sweet, and sneaking in a serving of fruit at the same time (like in this Date Shake). I tried the recipe both with and without it, and I definitely preferred the version WITH the banana. It was sweeter, frostier, and the banana flavor was nearly undetectable. All you’ll taste is pure pumpkin spice bliss.
  • Lots of warm spices.
  • Graham crackers. The “crust” to this yummy pumpkin pie–inspired dessert.
  • Vanilla Frozen Yogurt. A freezer staple in our ice-cream-loving household.

Pumpkin Milkshake Topping Options

  • Whipped Cream. Top your milkshake with a heap of whipped cream for an extra decadent and tasty option.
  • Graham Cracker. For the ultimate pumpkin pie experience!
  • Chocolate Sauce. Drizzle a little chocolate syrup over the top for the chocolate lover in your life.
  • Caramel Sauce. Pumpkin + caramel = the perfect combination.

  1. Could I use frozen plain greek yogurt sweetened with a bit of stevia in this recipe instead of the kemps frozen yogurt?

    1. Hi Helen, I haven’t tried it that way, so it’d be an experiment! I’d taste as you go and adjust sweetener as needed. I hope you enjoy!

  2. Hi Erin, I might be mistaken but didn’t you use to have a pumpkin pie smoothie recipe? This is the closest I could find on your site but I swear I made the smoothie before?

  3. Would love to try to make this drink as a cocktail for a friendsgiving. Do you have any suggestions on what/how to add alcohol to this?

    1. Hi Sarah, I’ve never tested this with alcohol but doing a quick Google search for boozy milkshakes, it looks like you would add it when you add the milk. Hope this helps!
