I’m staring out my kitchen window at a horrifying sight. My outdoor thermometer is telling me it’s 100 degrees out there. The water sitting on the table next to me is just not going to cut it. This is the kind of day that demands a milkshake. We deserve it! Here are some ideas to get you started. Pick up some Hansen’s ice cream at the Outlet or Moo Roo and laugh at the heat from the comfort of your A/C.
Chocolate ice cream (1/2 pint) with 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 cup peanut butter
Chocolate and coffee ice cream (1 cup each) with 2 Tbs milk and 1/4 cup chocolate chips
Classic strawberry: 1 pint strawberry ice cream, 1/4 cup milk, and 1 cup strawberries
Marshmallow: Broil 8 big marshmallows on foil until browned and blend with 1 pint vanilla ice cream, 1/4 cup milk, 1 tsp vanilla extract, and a tiny pinch of salt
Chocolate ice cream (1 pint) with 2 bananas and 1/4 cup milk
Chocolate or strawberry ice cream (1 pint) with 8 Oreos (or more) and 1/4 cup milk
Chocolate or vanilla ice cream (1 pint) with 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 cup Nutella
