lol...this thread keeps popping up and I am going to have to make some pumpkin cubes tonight so I can feed that craving I am getting for a Pumpkin Spice shake.

The Pumpkin Spice flavored coffee only helps me in the morning.

I use canned pumpkin. It's much easier to work with. I am sure I would not bother if I had to start with a fresh pumpkin.

For fresh pumpkin juts scoop out seeds, cut into manageable sizes, peel, place in water and bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer and cook until tender then drain...you have fresh pumpkin. Easier to buy canned and there isn't much of a taste difference.

I've also addedpumpkin andpumpkin pie spice to a vanilla Atkins shake for a lazy man's shake and it is really good. Frozen pumpkin is now my new addition, thanks.

I made my heavy cream and pumpkin frozen cubes last night and enjoyed a pumpkin shake this morning---was a great change from my usual shakes and will keep cubes available in the freezer for quick shakes in the future.

Thanks for the recipe!

The pumpkin cubes do sound like a good idea.Ice makes it a great consistency but waters it down some.

OMG! What a great excuse to have "pumpkin pie" at other times aside from Thanksgiving and Christmas.

BTW, if you're afraid to eat raw eggs, or if you have immune system issues like I do and should never eat them except well cooked, you can use Egg Beaters or another of the pasteurized egg products without cooking them, and without fear.

I just tried your shake...it's amazingly delicious! Thank you kindly!

I found these cute lil containers shopping today. I've since packed 4 with pumpkin and 4 with heavy cream for freezing. Tomorrow morning just drop em in the blender. They hold the 1/3 and 1/4 measurements beautifully.

Thanks everyone for the Hamilton Beach single serve blender recommendation as well. I LOVE this thread!!!

That is exactly what I am using it for. I was really full and only drank a half a cup of coffee today instead of my usual 2 at work. I did use 3 eggs though instead of the one. It would be nice to get off the caffeine for good. Maybe this is a way for me.

I have 8 of these and also some larger ones (1 cup size) that have screw lids. They are absolutely wonderful for freezing and taking things for lunch.

I'm too lazy to wash up ice cube trays or containers - I just line a baking sheet with waxed paper and make little "blops" of canned pumpkin (I use my smallest "ice cream scooper" which formerly made cookie dough all equal in size!) and freeze, then put all the blops into a ziploc and keep them in the freezer til I need them.

You can use the waxed paper right away for a second batch too!

I LOVE this idea!! I have been freezing coffee into cubes for coffee egg creams, and wanted to make pumkin cubes, too, but hate how yucky my ice cube trays look after putting coffee in them. . didn't want to go there with the pumpkin! I'm definately going to do this instead! I bet the "blops" (that's a technical baking term, I understand) freeze even faster than cubes in trays, too!

Awesome idea!!

Might I add, I tried using an emmersion blender as the picture shows, but it didnt get through the frozen pumpkin icecube size blocks. Had to transfer it all to my huge blender. I might let the frozen pumpkin thaw just a little before using. Id prefer to mix it up in the cup Im going to drink it in rather than lug out my huge blender.

But as I mentioned the other day DELICIOUS!!!! I used DaVinci SF Vanilla as my sweetner. I HATE any granulated or powdered artificial sweetner.

I love pumpkin pie so this will be great for me. I can't wait to try it.

Even though I haven't started my program yet, I am getting great ideas from this site that will really help me.

2 blocks of frozen pumpkin (ice cube size)
1/4 t pumpkin pie spice

stevia or other sweetener
pinch of salt. (optional)

You can add a little cream or an ounce of cream cheese, etc. if you like. These can easily be adjusted for just about everyone.
This sounds so good right now!! I'll be making this shake.
Thanks for the idea to freeze the pumpkin too!!
