Pumpkin Malted Milkshake
It's no secret I love pumpkin and these pumpkin malted milkshakes are thebomb.com!
What do you need to make Pumpkin Malted Milkshakes?
I really wanted some pumpkin ice cream and I couldn't find any and I didn't want to make it myself.
Instead, I went out and got some ingredients to make Pumpkin Malted Milkshakes!
Vanilla ice cream and malted milk were actually all I needed to run out and buy.
- Vanilla ice cream
- Malted milk
- Pumpkin puree
- Half and half
- Ground nutmeg
Optional ingredients include (to increase the pumpkin flavor):
- Whipped cream
- Pumpkin pie extract
- Pumpkin pie creamer
How to Increase the Flavor of your Pumpkin Malted Milkshake:
Your first step is to taste your milkshake.
If you don't think your pumpkin milkshake is pumpkin flavored enough there are a few things you can do:
You can add some pumpkin spice creamer, you might already have it in your fridge!
Another flavor addition you could try is pumpkin pie extract. I find this addition to be a bit harsh so keep that in mind while adding extract to your milkshake.
I would start small (maybe 1/8 tsp) and give it a taste. Add more if you need to!
Adding Whipped Cream to Your Pumpkin Malted Milkshake:
Even though it is very cold in NY, I think this is a perfect fall treat.
And while adding whipped cream is optional, you might as well top this pumpkin milkshake off with a hefty helping of whipped cream!
