Try Chef Uno’s Pumpkin Spice Tres Leche Milkshake

It's that time of year when people put pumpkin in everything. The Pumpkin Spice craze is here to stay and Chef Uno whipped up something for National Dessert Day: an incredible Pumpkin Spice Tres Leche Shake.

And, throw in a little Captain Morgan Spiced Rum and you got yourself a good time!

Serving size: 2 (because sharing is caring)

If you make this, take a photo and share it using #ChefUno! Keep up with Chef Uno on Facebook, Twitter, or even better, go visit her restaurant Chino Chinatown.

Cheers to eating dessert first,

Chef Uno

1/4 cup Captain Morgans Spiced Rum (optional)

Pumpkin Sugar

3 tablespoon pumpkin spice

1/4 cup sugar


1/4 cup salted rum caramel

1/2 cup whip cream



1. Chill the glasses in the freezer so your milkshake will stay icy cold.

2. Add all pumpkin cream ingredients in a blender and mix until blended.

3. Place milkshake ingredients into the blender, adding the vanilla ice cream last. Blend until all ingredients are incorporated.

4. On a separate plate, mix pumpkin spice and sugar. This will be used to rim the glass.

6. Pour the milkshake in the glass, top with whip cream, a drizzle of caramel and pinch of pumpkin sugar.
