Candy Corn Milkshake

This recipe was posted by my sister in law Erin!
Here's a little healthy Halloween treat for ya!

Candy Corn Milkshake
Bottom Layer: Pumpkin
2/3 cup vanilla yogurt (I used greek)
5 tablespoons pureed pumpkin
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon milk

blend until well mixed. Pour into a cup or bowl and place in freezer for 30 minutes.

Middle Layer: Vanilla
2/3 cup vanilla yogurt (again I used greek)
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons agave

Follow the directions for previous layer

Top Layer: Banana
2/3 cup vanilla yogurt
1 banana
a scant amount of turmeric to add yellow color, or just a few drops of yellow food coloring

Blend until well mixed. Pour into bow or cup and place in freezer for 30 minutes.

So what I did, was started out with the vanilla flavor, because I knew that it would blend well with all the other flavors, and I wouldn't have to wash my blender between flavors! Then I followed with the banana layer, and then the pumpkin. If you do it this way, you will use very little milk for the subsequent layers, because the liquid left over from the previous layer will be sufficient for the next one. 
Once your layers are chilled for about 30 minutes, they are perfect consistency for a milkshake. If you don't want to wait, add ice and you'll have more of a smoothie texture, but it will still taste great! Enjoy!


  1. ooooh, cannot wait to try this over the weekend as we celebrate with other spook-tacular yummies!! :)
