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!
