Pumpkin Pie Blizzard

Pumpkin Pie Blizzard
For the past few years Dairy Queen has feature their Pumpkin Pie Blizzard as their “Blizzard of the Month” for October.  DQ describes this yummy treat as “Pumpkin Pie blended with vanilla soft serve, crowned with whipped topping and nutmeg.”  It is one of my very favorite Blizzard flavors, and I am sad every year when it goes away. I had some pumpkin left from making Pumpkin Whoopie Pies, so I decided to make my own version of DQ’s Pumpkin Pie Blizzard.  I think it tastes just like DQ’s!  If you have extra pumpkin, give this a try!

  19. I LOVE BLIZZARDS! Just one question though....do you have a drive-thru? ;- ) This looks fabulous!

  20. I've never had the DQ Blizzard but this sounds fantastic. So what would be considered over processing the wafers and what happens if you do?

    I have all these ingredients at home. I will try this soon. YUM!

    ReplyDelete
  21. @Anne--no drive-thru, that would be too much work! LOL

    @Vicki--you want the the wafers to remain chunks in the ice cream, not be so finely ground up that you can't taste them. Nothing will happen if you over-process, but you won't have the effect crunchy pieces of "pie crust" in the ice cream.
