I like milkshakes. They’re yummy. And, believe it or not, I didn’t discover them until Nate’s mom came onto the scene. That’s right, yet another thing for Nate to add to the “I can’t believe Jane hadn’t tried this until she met me” list…like relish on a hot dog. It’s true. I’m a weirdo.
Okay, back to milkshakes. They’re easy and way good. All you do is blend milk, ice, sugar (to taste) and a bit of vanilla (chocolate syrup is, of course, another option). That’s it. So yummy. And the good news is that it tastes a lot like an ice cream shake, minus all that crazy fat and sugar. I would say it may even be a bit more refreshing.
I did mess it up a little the other night by adding too much ice. Well, I suppose some people would have liked it better – it got much thicker and foamier. I thought it was too much…although it made for a better picture. Figured I’d mention it so you could finesse this super fancy recipe to your liking.
Wait – I need to do a little mother-in-law heckling. I just want to say I think it ironic that she gives me such a hard time for Milk on the Rocks…um, isn’t this just Milk on the Rocks in a blender?
