Not the best picture, I know. I took it around 7 last night, and the lighting in my house is atrocious.
I’m sorry about the absence lately too. I’ve been sick as a dog, and I haven’t been doing much of anything, let alone baking. I did come up with the rest of the things for my store, so as soon as I photograph them and put them up, I’ll pick the winner of the give-away.
Any-who, so yeah, last night I made awesome milkshakes, and I thought I’d share the recipe with you. I know it’s starting to get cold, and ice cream usually isn’t the first thing on your mind in November, but I was missing summer hard. Also? I really don’t think there’s ever a bad time for ice cream.
- 3 scoops chocolate ice cream
- 1/2 cup cold milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (or peppermint extract if you want to make it Christmasy)
- 3 1/2 tablespoons malted milk powder (If you live in the Buffalo area, I found this in Wegmans. It’s carried in most grocery stores, so it shouldn’t be too hard to find, unlike the graham flour I’ve been trying to hunt down.)
Throw it all in a blender and blend it until it’s smooth. I like my milkshakes thick, but if you don’t, add a little more milk. I couldn’t get mine up the straw, which was awesome. I love when a milkshake is so thick it collapses the straw.
I laughed as I watched Evie trying to suck it up the straw too. I thought she was going to burst a blood vessel! It was awesome. Eventually she got aggravated enough that she asked me for a spoon.
