A copycat version of the delicious Pumpkin Pie Milkshake found at Aunty Gravity’s at Magic Kingdom. This delicious shake will sure bring magic into your home and is a delicious fall treat to make!
Aunty Gravity’s Special – Pumpkin Pie Milkshake!
We love going to Walt Disney World during the fall. It’s not just because of all the fall decor and pumpkins, but especially because of all the seasonal food.
One of our favorite treats there is the Pumpkin Pie Milkshake found at Aunty Gravity’s at Magic Kingdom. It’s cool and pumpkin-y and full of fall flavors. We wanted to take a stab at making it at home, and we are so happy to report that it takes JUST LIKE IT!!
We know we can’t be at the parks all fall long, so we are glad we can now make this yummy treat and bring some of the magic home when we are missing the park and treats. Best part is it’s just a great, fall treat. If you love pumpkin and ice cream then you’ll love this yummy concoction.
Why the Caramel?
The caramel isn’t necessary, but boy howdy does it make it better. Caramel and pumpkin have always been a great combo, so adding a little bit of caramel to the top is an added flavor that makes the milkshake even more addicting.
If you really want the caramel to stick, freeze your cup for a bit first so it sets faster when you add the caramel down the sides. 😉
Store bought caramel works just fine too – but also note that it makes a great addition on top (drizzled over the whipped cream) if you want to go that route as well.
How to Make Pumpkin Milkshakes
Making this milkshake takes just a few minutes!
After you get the caramel cup ready, you just need to blend the rest of your ingredients. This recipe is just for 2 servings, so keep that in mind if you are making it for your whole family. You can also make the cups smaller if you trying to make some for the kiddos but don’t want them having such a large cup.
Add your ingredients (ice cream, milk, pumpkin pie filling, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice and food coloring – if wanted) to the blender. Blend until smooth. The food coloring isn’t necessary, but we added it so it looked a little more like the milkshake from Aunty Gravity’s. 😉
Pour into your cup and add whipped cream and sprinkles and serve immediately.
Recipe Tips + Tricks
Pie filling: Normally I am always pointing out that recipe needs pumpkin purée, but in this case you will need pumpkin pie filling. The cans look almost the same. You can tell the difference when you read the ingredients. Pumpkin purée lists only pumpkin whereas pumpkin pie filling will have ingredients similar to this “Pumpkin, water, sugar, salt, spices, natural flavors”
Toppings: You can’t go wrong topping this with a dollop of whipped cream just like Disney does. They also add some festive autumn sprinkles. You can easily add a drizzle of caramel or chocolate syrup. Finally, sprinkling some crushed graham crackers adds a delicious element as well.
Storage: You can keep the shake in the fridge for a few hours. Be sure to put it in an airtight container and place it in the coldest part of your refrigerator. If the shake begins to separate, simply blend it back together before drinking.
This recipe is so simple and definitely tastes just like the shake from Walt Disney World. If you want to enjoy this copycat recipe at home, we highly recommend giving this a try. 😉
