Shake it up, baby!

..Twist and shout!
Nothing a little bit o' twisting and shouting with the Beatles to start your Wednesday off!! :)

Two weeks ago, I hosted my women's small group at our house.  I wanted to make a fun fall-ish dessert for our evening together, which also happened to be the first snow of....fall!?
Life in the Midwest, go figure:)

So I whipped up some tasty gingersnap pumpkin milkshakes.....hence the shake it up baby play on words ;-) 

Gingersnap Pumpkin Milkshakes

  • 12-15 small gingersnap cookies
  • 1-1 1/2 pints of vanilla ice cream
  • 1/2 cup of cold skim milk
  • 1 cup of canned pumpkin ( I ended up using the whole can, cause I'm a pumpkin fiend:)
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • (Optional) Cool Whip topping and gingersnap cookies for scooping/snacking

1// Put gingersnap cookies into blender on high speed until pulverized into fine crumbs

2// Add all the yumminess: pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, ice cream, and milk
Blend on high speed until mixture well combined

3// If too thick add more milk...if too thin add a little more ice cream

4// Pour into pretty glasses (cause it makes the shake drinking experience that more enjoyable:) and enjoy the taste of fall!
