If you like the idea of pumpkin pie in a cup, look no further. This cool, thick treat is made with roughly five scoops of Dave’s pumpkin ice cream and tastes exactly like you’d imagine.
Pumpkin cheesecake shake, Il Gelato
For variations of the traditional pumpkin flavor, try Il Gelato’s pumpkin cheesecake shake, or pumpkin stracciatella, which is basically pumpkin chocolate chip. Other seasonal gelato flavors that can be whipped into creamy shakes include pumpkin spice and apple strudel.
Banana-cream-pie shake, The Counter
Pumpkin not your thing? Try this banana-cream-pie shake, which blends vanilla ice cream, graham cracker crumbs, banana and Nilla wafer cookies, and finishes off with a whipped marshmallow topping.
Pumpkin crunch smoothie, HiBlend Health Bar & Café
For a lighter (and probably healthier) pumpkin fix, this smoothie has got you covered. It’s a blend of pumpkin puree, almond milk, peanut butter, banana, cinnamon and granola.
Pumpkin spice brûlée oolong tea, Teavana
The lightest of our holiday beverages, this swirl of pumpkin, caramel, toffee, butterscotch and vanilla is available either hot or iced.
