This recipe was really disappointing, but a couple of small tweaks made this recipe something the who family loved, even me who doesn't like pumpkin! It wasn't near sweet enough so on a whim my partner added about 2-3 Tbsps of cinnamon and sugar mix and about a half cup of sugar, but he likes his pumpkin sweet. It's like drinking pumpkin pie or pumpkin pudding in milkshake form.
It is exactly as advertised, the way people think of milkshakes in New England or what you'd think of with the term "nog". It's got about the consistency of eggnog, but pumpkin pie flavored! You could easily make this into a frappe if you simply reduced the milk to...I'd say about a cup? And added three more cups of ice cream. You could probably swap out the pint for a half-gallon, or a gallon if you wanted it really thick and that would do the trick.
In short, few little tweaks and this became a fantastic family favorite. I actually liked it well enough without modifications (and I really don't like pumpkin flavored anything!) but the family voted on sweeter.
