    15 oz can canned pumpkin (not the pie mix kind)
    2 cups skim milk
    2 tsp cinnamon
    1 tsp nutmeg
    1/2 cup splenda or sweetner of your choice
    3 tbsp cool whip

    Freeze pumpkin so that it is good a firm, but not frozen solid
    Put all ingredients in a blender, except the cool whip, and blend until milkshake consistency
    Pour into glasses (makes 4 - 8oz servings)
    Top with cool whip

    Cal. 153, Carbs 24, Fiber 6, Fat 4, Protein 4, Sugar 12, Solium 57.

    Would be good for breakfast or as a mid morning or mid afternoon snack.

    Enjoy.

    Ice Cream Milk shake is 3 to 4 scoops ice cream, 1/4 cup pumpkin, 1/4 cup milk and 1 tsp nutmed. Blend well and enjoy. We made these at our restaurant..and sold about 50 a day of these.

    I make a morning breakfast smoothie with pumpkin adding Aria and flax seed. Great idea to freeze it some. I will have to try it.It kind of celebrates fall.

    Aria is a women's protein powder. Low glycemic I find it at Trader Joe's That and the ground flax seed make it a wonderful way to start the day. I thought about the pumpkin, and maybe freezing it in ice cube trays and adding would make that thickness we like.

    Just don't freeze it to hard, that will give your blender a real workout. Ask me how I know (burned my old one up)

    I can understand Pumpkin Pie, but Pumpkin Pie Milkshake??
    Down here pumpkin is a vegetable so this seems odd to me.
    I've seen people talk about roast veges and what they cook.
    Have never heard anyone mention pumpkin. Is it not eaten as a vege in America?
    Always interested in differences from one country to another.
    Hope to hear from someone.

    We use our pumpkin to make pies and add to make yummy treats, like cakes, jelly rolls, bars and etc. They are rarely used like squash, corn or peas etc. I know folks in New Zealand make pumpkin soup with theirs. I use to chat often with a couple from New Zealand, and I talked his wife into making her first actual pumpkin pie..and she was hooked. ha ha ha She talked me into the soup..and I was not real excited about it. I would not make it again. lol

    I make Pumpkin soup in Winter. There was a recipe on the board recently for pumpkin muffins which I intend to give a try. I love roast pumpkin and it is the only food I don't mind being a bit burnt.
    Do you always use pumpkin from a can? Someone said it was like a puree. My husband makes the best pumpkin scones. I think you may call them biscuits. Biscuits to us are what you refer to as cookies.
    Maybe I should start a thread on this.

    I can my own pumpkin puree, but many people do buy their pumpkin from a can. I know at one time about 5 years ago, in New Zealand you could not buy it in a can. You are right, the scones as you call them are our biscuits here. I have never tried pumpkin in a biscuit. Isn't it funny how different items are called different things in other parts of the world? I know Ken from NZ and I after we have talked several times and I would say..well time to get my fanny in gear..finally one time..he explained what the fanny means in his area.. well needless to say...I never said that again. ha ha ha

    mythreesuns, thank you for the giggle. Yes it's the same here as NZ.
    The only type of pumpkin we get in a can is soup.
    Is Pumpkin Pie milkshake actually made from the pie?

    No, you are just adding pumpkin to the milkshake. You know when you boil down the pumpkin to make it nice and smooth..that is what is added to the shake. I have added pumpkin pie slices to make my own blizzards (Dairy Queen) type treats. I so love learning how different parts of the world live also. Ken from NZ traveled to the states one time (before we got to know each other) and actually drove right through the city I live in. How we found out, he was using a camcorder taking pictures..when a deer jumped right in front of them. He was so excited over that happening and how many times it happened to them. He shared a clip of that vid with me showing me how close it had been to his vehicle... I saw my DH's brothers house was in the clip and my DH's truck was in the yard at the time. How funny is that huh? lol

    Most private part of the body. Only applies to women. Interesting how what words mean changes from country to country. Also happens from state to state here in Oz.

    I make bread pudding in a pumpkin shell, but that's about the only way I use (small) whole pumpkins in cooking. Butternut squash is very similar to pumpkin, and more manageable for 2 people. I read somewhere that canned pumpkin is actually butternut squash. I make pumpkin pie, usually, from canned pumpkin, but with all the sugar, it isn't considered a vegetable dish, just a dessert with some beta carotene to ease the dieter's conscience.

    We love the version of the milkshake mythreesuns describes, and have done that for years, but it's time to try the lower calorie kind around here, and I'll bet it's good. I'm trying that soon. Thanks for sharing it!

    One footnote: in St. Louis, where we used to live, there is a famous local ice cream stand, Ted Drewes, and sometimes they offer a pumpkin pie "concrete", which is a thick milkshake with actual pie, crust and all, beaten into it - delicious, but it must be hundreds of calories!

    Thanks

    I stopped using the store canned pumpkin years ago. I bake down my pumpkin and then puree it in the blender or food processor. Then I put in canning jars or freezer bags and freeze till I need it.
