This is actually one of the greatest milkshakes ever. There is plenty of pecan flavor and delicious caramelized goodness. Broken chunks of pie crust are added at the end to keep larger chunks whole.
I love milk shakes occasionally and I love pie unequivocally. This clearly is not a light dessert but it's great and easily shareable among a crowd! I serve a few ounces in a wine glass to finish a meal and people just go wild for it. We had a long discussion of exactly how you could run a pie milkshake food truck and how ridiculously popular it would be.
The ice cream and pie form a deliciously rich and tasty milkshake, bursting with the flavors of pecan pie. The sweet caro sauce and crunchy pecans are well incorporated. It finishes with little chunks of slightly salty pie crust mixed in to give an amazing salty nugget counterpoint.
2 C of butter pecan ice cream
1/4 C milk
1 slice of Pecan pie rear crust removed
Cinnamon to garnish
I add the butter pecan and milk into a cup and use an immersion blender to blend until smooth. I add the slice of pie and blend it to combine. Finally I crumble the crust into the milkshake and use a spoon to lightly incorporate the larger chunks of crust into the milkshake.
Serve in wineglasses or tumblers and garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon as desired.
A similar and tasty other option is apple pie with vanilla ice cream milkshakes.
