Milkshake Recipe


Earlier this week I did a post about ice cream, which has had me thinking about those tasty treats all week. I looked through one of my favorite cookbooks Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey by Jill O'Connor and saw an amazing recipe for milkshakes! What better way to beat the heat than a nice cold drink. The recipe in this book is actually for New York Cheesecake Milkshakes.

Ingredients
1/2 cup Whole Milk
1 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla
1-2 Pints Vanilla Ice Cream
2 Wedges (4-6ounces each) Plain Cheesecake

Note: We did not have any cheesecake on hand so we substituted chocolate syrup and peanut butter.

Directions
Combine the milk, vanilla, 1 pint of ice cream, and cheesecake in a blender. Puree until thick and smooth. If the mixture is too thin add a little more ice a spoonful at a time and blend until you get the desired consistency. Pour into a glass and serve.
So we mixed it up a little since we had no cheesecake. My friends wanted a chocolate milkshake so they added chocolate syrup instead of cheesecake. Remember the more syrup you add the stronger the chocolate taste.
I wanted a peanut butter milkshake so instead of cheesecake I added a couple tablespoons of peanut butter.
We all loved our milkshakes. They were so yummy. I think this recipe would work for any kind of milkshake you want just change the cheesecake to get the favor you want.
