Pumpkin Shake

Don’t you love this time of year when the pumpkin shakes are featured at food establishments? 

Well, now you can make the BEST one at home, while watching a movie or playing games with family and friends.  This one is flavorful, creamy and can only be made better with a dollop of whipped cream.

I even have an optional recipe to make this a Pumpkin Smoothie!  Come see the easy recipe.
