Pecan Pie in milkshake form! A delicious spin of your Thanksgiving dessert that can be ready in 5 minutes!
I’ve been baking a lot lately. I started out with this birthday cake that I baked for a friend at work. The inside is an Indonesian layer cake that we traditionally have on birthdays. It’s made with 2 layers of vanilla cake and 1 layer of chocolate cake. I typically make mine vice versa (I always want more of the chocolate!). Then I made these adorable Autumn cakelets with this pan. Clearly, I have done my fair share of baking for everyone else lately so I knew it was time to splurge on myself with something quick, easy, and delicious. I was messing around in the kitchen, and decided I would treat myself to this delicious Pecan Pie Milkshake.
Fall in our home simply means pies, pies and lots more pies! When we lived in LA, I always looked forward to my friend’s peanut butter pie. I’ve never tasted anything so delicious! Sadly, she has moved to her hometown and left me dreaming of her peanut butter pie… Maybe I will try to recreate it here! Then there’s also pumpkin pie which I normally have with a small side of sweet potato and marshmallows. It’s my favorite, BTW.
But how could we forget pecan pie? It always steals the show! This year, I wanted to serve the pie a little bit differently. That’s where this Pecan Pie Milkshake comes in. It’s got delicious, sweet pecan pie, and a touch of bourbon to give it a little boozy boost (because that’s how we’re rolling this Thanksgiving!) This drink is so simple it will only takes you 5 minutes to whip up. This year – you have to try this at your Thanksgiving table. I guarantee it will be the star of the dinner (and dessert!). What’s your favorite Thanksgiving dish?
- 8 full scoop butter pecan ice cream
- 1 cup almond milk
- ½-1 cup bourbon
- Whipped cream, for topping
- Pecans, for garnish
- Combine all of the ingredients, except cream and pecans, in a blender. Mix well and top with whipping cream and pecans.
Thanksgiving is all about family, friends and delicious food. Luckily, the food blogging community is all about these things as well. To celebrate the holiday, Meghan from Cake ‘n Knife and Susannah from Feast + West are hosting Blogsgiving Dinner. There are more than 20 blogs sharing recipes today!
The idea is based on an old-fashioned potluck dinner party. Each blogger is bringing one or more dishes to the party, so be sure to stop by each one and get some ideas for your own Thanksgiving meal. We’ll be posting to social media with the hashtag #blogsgivingdinner, but you can see the entire menu below in our recipe roundup.
