Deb, thanks for the tip on freezing the pumpkin. I also froze the heavy cream. With those two ingredients frozen, there is no need for additional ice cubes.

I can't stress this enough, pre-freezing the ingredients makes all the difference! I never did like the ice chunks in ANY of these shakes made with regular ice, no matter how small the ice chips were.

This is very creamy, very smooth, and tastes EXACTLY like a slice of pumpkin pie.

Another great thing is that there is NO special protein powder in here! There are just a few simple ingredients that you probably all have laying around the kitchen.

About the raw egg, get over it (LOL). Believe me, no one on here could possibly be more disguisted about eating a raw egg in anything than I could be. Believe me, you will NEVER taste it, or even think about it once you taste how good this is!

This also makes a great quick and easy meal replacement, in addition to an after dinner treat.

Nutrition info and more tips below pics.



You can see from the pic how thick and creamy this is. Notice how the straw stands up, and how there are no little ice particles on top.




This is all you will need for the entire recipe! (pumpkin, cream, egg, spice, sweetener, and water) How simple is that???




Just combine all ingredients at once, and blend. Here is a pic of the frozen cream being added.




Here is a pic of the frozen pumpkin being added.




Add the water, mix, and enjoy!!!




Here is the nutritional info:

1/3 Cup Pumpkin.......................26 calories.......2.6 carbs.......(.3) fat.......1.3 protein
1/4 Cup Heavy Cream...............200 calories.......1.7 carbs.........22 fat......1.2 protein
1 egg......................................71 calories.......(.4) carbs..........5 fat.........6 protein
2 Teaspoons Sweetener Blend.......0 calories..........0 carbs..........0 fat.........0 protein
1/4 Teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice....0 calories..........0 carbs..........0 fat.........0 protein
1/2 Cup Water............................0 calories..........0 carbs..........0 fat.........0 protein
Totals....................................297 calories.......4.7 carbs.......27.3 fat.......8.5 protein


This shake is about 83% fat as is, so it would also work out great for you fat fasters, or anyone on Banta.

But, if you want a little more protein, simply throw in a scoop of your favorite vanilla or unflavored protein powder. If you want a little more fiber, add a Tablespoon of flax, you won't even notice it with the strong pumpkin flavor.

If this does NOT taste exactly like a pumpkin pie to you, try adding a little more pumpkin spice or a little more sweetener. You could also try a dash of cinnamon.

This is really quick, really easy, and really tasty!!!
Bobo, I am going to try this for dinner today. Had a late lunch and I am not going to be very hungry for dinner. It sure looks good.

Bobo, I used your recipe:

HEAVEN in a glass!!!

(Except mine wasn't thick...)

I also don't use pumpkin pie spice, though add a dash of the different spices that are in pumpkin spice, and some cinnamon.

ETA: Only ONE problem. It dissapears way to fast.

Made it again today - sipping on it right now. It is very thick... I think it wasn't thick yesterday, because I didn't take the time to let the cream and pumpkin freeze all the way in the trays, before I tried making a shake...:blush: I was impatient to try it.

My blender has earned a new home on the kitchen counter, as these are definetely going to be a daily treat!

I just made this and used 3 cubes of each but then I also used coconut milk instead of water.

I also got these big tapioca straws at the japanese grocery store (they are like, monster sized drinking straws) which was perfect in my shake. It was gone in a jiffy!

Yeah, that's a big problem with this shake. It disappears too fast and you're left pouting with an empty glass.

Thanks for asking, Erica. I'd like to know, too.

Another thing I like about this recipe. Aside from the fact that it's super-delicious and very nutritious, it gives me something to do with leftover pumpkin. I used to dislike using recipes that called for 1/4 cup or 1/2 cup of canned pumpkin because then I had to fix something else that used it within a day or two or else throw the rest of it out. Now I just plop the leftover pumpkin into an ice cube tray, freeze it, pop out the cubes into a Ziploc bag, and I have the basis for a couple of great breakfasts!

Fage is Greek yogurt. It's very thick and delicious. I use TJ's brand Greek yogurt. It's also delicous and cheaper.

If I remember correctly, the Total brand is much lower in carbs, though it is quite a bit more expensive.

You can make your own Greek yogurt for much less money by straining full fat yogurt through a sieve and or coffee filter for a few hours. The end result is a thick, creamy yogurt just like Fage but a lot cheaper. My favorite brands are Pavel's or Stoneyfield Farm.

ok is there anything we can use other than egg to have the same "shake" consistency? I simply can't gag down a raw egg. : \

I can't drink raw egg because I have an impaired immune system and can't risk the chance of salmonella or whatever. So I use Egg-Beaters or another pasteurized egg product. I've also made a pumpkin shake without any egg, but with about 1/3 of a cup of vanilla whey protein powder. The whey protein adds much more thickness than the egg does.
