I love Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving for so many reasons, mainly side dishes and desserts. However, while people are busy with their main course and side dishes, let’s talk something different. Something creamy, sweet, and boozy. Pecan pie milkshake!
Fall in our home 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. Then there’s also pumpkin pie, which I usually 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!.
You won’t believe how easy this pecan pie milkshake is and only requires 3 ingredients (or 5 in total). Woot!
Can you make this pecan pie milkshake non-dairy?
Yes! Thankfully, there are so many delicious non-dairy options these days. Use whatever non-dairy vanilla ice cream brand you prefer, whatever non-dairy milk you like, and a non-dairy whipped cream.
Can I use any alcohol besides bourbon?
Absolutely! Feel free to add your favorite coffee liquor, vanilla vodka, or rum.
Then, what about garnishes?
There are many options to choose from. You can add whipped cream, chopped nuts or pecans, or chocolate chips.
The beauty of this milkshake is that it is so easy and not overly too complicated in flavors, ingredients, or process. You can wing it and it still turns out ah-ma-zing! So, need an excuse to day drink? This pecan pie milkshake is the answer to all of your prayers. It’s fast, easy, and delicious.
