5 stars from 1 rating of Leftover Thanksgiving Pie Milkshakes

Tell me the truth. You know that you feel guilty about eating the pie leftover from Thanksgiving and Christmas in the refrigerator. Of course you tried to make your pies healthier this year. You even focused on the fruit and vegetable pies like pumpkin pie, sweet potato pie, apple pie, and cherry pie to keep the calories down.

However, there are only so many breaks you can give yourself on your diet, and special nights you can stage to eat pie. You might even (now I said just might) get tired of eating pie after a while. Why not turn that pie into something even more special? Invite your friends, all of your kids’ friends, or even the neighbors over to your house and make milkshakes! You will be popular after this one!

When it has milk and “frozen yogurt” in it, doesn’t that make it sound so much better? When you really think about the ingredients in ice cream (and I don’t mean the fat free stuff), you will realize that it really is good for you, as long as you eat in moderation. I bet you can think of all kinds of great excuses to make yourself a milkshake throughout the day every day.

  • But it has fresh apples in it and fruit is good for you.
  • This will give me a reason to drink milk every day.
  • It’s been so long since I’ve had a milkshake.
  • And so many more . . .

Consider all of the different kinds of pie that would make a great milkshake and the variety of pies that are made during the holidays. Apple pie, peach pie, cherry pie, pear pie, lemon-lime pie, banana cream pie, coconut cream pie, rhubarb pie, pumpkin pie, sweet potato pie, pecan pie, mincemeat pie, chocolate pie, cheesecake, and peanut butter pie are just a few.

Please tell me that your mouth is watering right now. I don’t think it counts if you are making a pie just to use this recipe. For all of those wonderful leftover pies in your refrigerator, consider this amazing recipe and have milkshakes with the family tonight!

I tried to find you a simple video for making a leftover pie milkshake, but all of them make this process way too difficult, trying to use a variety of pie appropriate spices, canned pie fillings, artificial flavorings, and the like.

As I am just mastering taking pictures of my creations (I have some cherry and pecan pies left. Maybe I’ll take pictures of me making a yummy cherry pie shake.), I have not yet delved into the world of making good videos. Maybe I’ll have a friend over to help me give it a shot this time.

In truth, this is the absolute easiest recipe you’ll ever make. Top your shakes with whipped cream and some of the crumbled pie crust and you’ll look like a professional. Why not top an apple or pumpkin pie milkshake with some cinnamon, a chocolate pie or sweet potato pie milkshake with some coconut, or a lemon-lime pie milkshake with some lemon or lime zest?

Go all out! How often do you really get to enjoy a yummy milkshake? In fact, how long has it truly been since you’ve had one? This is your moment to enjoy one with the excuse that you are simply trying to get rid of all of your leftovers. You deserve it! Check out all of my many pie recipes for some great ideas! Enjoy and let me know what pie you used and how it turned out!
