a little bit about the recipe
This milkshake recipe is full of bold coffee flavor and warm fall spices, like a frozen Pumpkin Spice Latte! There’s an option to make it a boozy milkshake, like a fall-twist on a frozen mudslide, or you can leave out the alcohol if you prefer.
2 SERVINGS | 10 oz each
Combine all ingredients (except whipped cream) in a blender and blend until smooth.

Pour the milkshakes into glasses, top with whipped cream and sprinkle with additional pumpkin spice seasoning.
To make it dairy-free, use dairy-free ice cream and milk (i.e. almond or oat milk).

For even more coffee flavor, use coffee cubes (coffee frozen in ice cube trays) instead of ice cubes!
