Pumpkin pie is to fall, as yummy, delicious frozen custard is to Freddy’s. Mix the two together and it’s Autumn magic! Our beloved fall treat, the Pumpkin Pie Concrete is made with Freddy’s fresh and creamy frozen custard blended with a whole slice of rich pumpkin pie, crust and all, topped with whipped cream and sprinkled with cinnamon.
“Our Pumpkin Pie Concrete has been a Guest favorite for 13 years,” said Scott, co-founder, owner, FredHead and original concrete blender. “When we created this recipe, we tried many versions, and the winner was always a fresh slice of pie, with that flaky, buttery crust included, to give the concrete a little bit of texture and that pumpkin spice flavor we all crave come fall.”
What is a Frozen Custard Concrete?
Let’s start with frozen custard: frozen custard originated on New York’s Coney Island at the turn of the 20th century. It’s smoother, denser and richer than ice cream, thanks to a churning process that minimizes ice crystals and removes excess air. At Freddy’s, we use America’s finest dairy ingredients and churn our frozen custard throughout the day, every day in each restaurant. It’s always fresh and ready to enjoy.
Now let’s talk about frozen custard concretes: our concretes are made with Freddy’s fresh frozen custard and blended with mix-ins like chocolate fudge, caramel, candy pieces, nuts or fruit (30 toppings to choose from!). Since the frozen custard is already denser than ice cream, when it’s blended with toppings, it creates a frozen dessert much thicker than a shake (it definitely requires a spoon) and oh, so delightful!
How is Freddy’s Pumpkin Pie Concrete Made?
Our Pumpkin Pie Concrete is one of our longest-running and most anticipated seasonal treats:
- Freddy’s vanilla frozen custard
- Whole slice of pumpkin pie (the secret: include the crust!)
- Blend to concrete perfection
- Top with whipped cream
- Sprinkle with cinnamon
Now grab a spoon and savor every bite wearing your favorite cardigan, hoodie or wrapped in your warm blanket!
For many of us, we have been enjoying this concrete for several years and love the original recipe, but if you are looking to add a twist (maybe even our take on the PSL, pumpkin spice latte) to your next Pumpkin Pie Concrete, check this out.
Where to Get the Seasonal Treat
Now that we have given you a few ideas on different ways to enjoy your next Pumpkin Pie Concrete, find a Freddy’s near you. Just remember, this seasonal favorite is only around for a short while at participating locations across the country, so don’t let fall pass you by without one (or two, or three . . . you get the idea!).
