There's no need for artificial coloring or flavoring when recreating this chain's delicious "limited-time only" holiday milkshake. Real canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices will do the trick in this Top Secret version. For the spices, rather than gathering up four costly bottles to use only a small amount from each, toss some pumpkin pie spice into your basket. It's a handy blend of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice that will be near the other spices in your market—McCormick makes a small size that's cheap. Combine everything below in a blender until smooth, and in a flash you will have whipped up two servings of a delicious duplicate that can now be enjoyed any time of the year.

I know, sounds silly but its true! It tastes more like raw pumpkin and less like pumpkin pie. Some people, like my hubby, likes that. I just don't feel it's spot on for jack in the box. What I do is 3 c ice cream, 1 c milk, and 1/4 pack of a limited edition pumpkin pie jello pudding box, then sprinkle pumpkin pie spice to taste. GL finding your perfect blend!!

Made this before Thanksgiving because my son was begging me (he's 6). I don't particularly care for pumkin pie, so this wasn't my cup of tea. I tried it anyway, and wow, it really does taste like pumpkin pie, just cold and without crust.
