There's no milk in this shake inspired by everyone's favorite fall dessert—pumpkin pie. Instead, vanilla ice cream is amped up with pumpkin purée, which builds an incredible level of creaminess, and warming spices and fresh orange help to maintain the pumpkin-tinted hue and fall flavor.


  • ½ cup fresh orange juice

  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree

  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream, softened

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus more for serving (optional)

  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger

  • Pinch of ground cloves

  • ¼ cup bourbon (optional)


  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender. Puree until smooth. Pour into glasses, sprinkle with cinnamon, and serve immediately.
