A sure crowd pleaser, for young, old, those who drink alcohol, those dieting etc…

From Cooking Light

Pumpkin pie in a glass?! Try it and believe it. This cold and creamy blended drink was a finalist in our 2005 Ultimate Reader Recipe contest. Readers gave it top ratings, too. Canned pumpkin and ice cream mix with pumpkin pie spice and brown sugar for a refreshingly different take on a classic holiday flavor

Ingredients

  • 2 cups vanilla reduced-fat ice cream (such as Healthy Choice), softened
  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 2/3 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon pumpkin-pie spice
  • 3 tablespoons frozen fat-free whipped topping, thawed
  • Pumpkin-pie spice (optional)

Preparation

  • Combine first 5 ingredients in a blender; process until smooth. Pour 3/4 cup ice cream mixture into each of 4 glasses. Top each with about 2 teaspoons whipped topping; sprinkle with the additional pumpkin-pie spice, if desired.
