Copycat DQ Pumpkin Pie Blizzard

The to making the perfect copycat Pumpkin Pie Blizzard is using Libby’s canned pumpkin pie mix, it’s just the amount of pumpkin flavor! If you’re wondering where you can find this item, it’s available at your local grocery store (in the USA only, sorry). It’s also available on Amazon.

The can size for Libby’s Pumpkin Pie Mix is 30 oz. Which means that you can make 13 homemade blizzards from 1 can. (or about .15 per serving!) To save the pie filling for later simply divide it into ice cube trays and freeze.

You’ll need to use 2-3 “cubes” of the frozen pie filling per blizzard, depending on the size of your ice cube tray. If you’re unsure simply use a tablespoon and measure water into the tray cube, you need four tablespoons (which is equal  to 1/4 c.)

  • scant 1/4 cup of Libby’s canned Pumpkin Pie mix
  • 2 large scoops of vanilla ice cream
  • Crushed Nilla Wafers of graham cracker crust pieces (see the recipe below)
  • cool whip or whipped cream

In a blender (or mason jar bullet) blitz the vanilla ice cream with the pumpkin pie mix, just enough to mix them in, then add graham cracker crust pieces or nilla wafers and blitz again.

Make sure you use Pumpkin pie mix and not plain pureed pumpkin.

Graham Cracker Crust Chunks

Here’s how to make your own Graham Cracker Crust Pieces-

  • 6 graham cracker squares, crushed fine
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar

Combine all the ingredients, blending together, then press into the bottom of a loaf pan and place it in the fridge until firm. Break into medium-sized chunks to make graham cracker crust pieces.
