The winter holidays are my favorite time of year, and this spiced pumpkin drink is one reason I love the season so much. If you don't have a coffee maker, it's OK to use instant coffee—just make it stronger. —Kathie Perez, East Peoria, Illinois


  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup strong brewed coffee
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1 cup crushed ice
  • Sweetened whipped cream and additional pumpkin pie spice


  1. In a small saucepan, heat milk, pumpkin, sugar and pie spice until bubbles form around sides of pan and sugar is dissolved. Transfer to a bowl; stir in coffee and vanilla. Refrigerate, covered, several hours or overnight.
