I make this pumpkin rum milkshake recipe deliciously dairy-free with cashew milk and vegan vanilla ice cream!
Easily turn this into a kid-friendly shake just by removing the rum.
You may also use light rum, but may want to add extra rum or sweetener — I recommend a few dates or some drops of stevia.
- 3 ounces dark rum
- 2 cups pumpkin puree
- 1 pint vegan or light vanilla ice cream
- 4 cups milk substitute or milk
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PUMPKIN
One cup of pumpkin is packed with 3.4 grams of iron, 1,906 micrograms of vitamin A, and 15 percent of your daily vitamin E.
All of these serve to boost and protect the immune system and keeping your eyes, bones, and teeth healthy. Pumpkin also protects against cellular damage and cancer.
Rum, when enjoyed in moderation, has proven to reduce occurrence of heart disease when paired with light but regular exercise.
It has also been proven to reduce stress and kidney cancer.
One serving of rum is 1.5oz. If you drink too much, the health benefits will not factor in the next morning, so please enjoy responsibly!
