Milkshakes – 3 Easy and Delicious Flavors!

I’m back!  And with 3 yummy milkshakes.


We’re finally settling in from our move and boy was it an adventure. We had a gamut of modern day human necessities go awry from the move-in date getting mixed up, the internet not working, to the air conditioning breaking down.  First world problems, eh?

I’m just happy we live in a world where there’s ice cream.

I mean, after a few 100 degree days without AC, the reverie of ice cream was pure, unadulterated hedonism at its best.  I may or may not have sat on the cool kitchen tile with reasons to retrieve something or another from the freezer, sipping on my cold beverage like a mad woman.  Ice cream is great but sometimes, you just need something cold to sip up faster than you can scoop up more ice cream for me than you ever have for anyone else.

May I introduce you to the strawberry cheesecake, salted caramel nutella, and cake batter milkshakes.  The strawberry cheesecake tastes like a thick and creamy pink berry spiked shake that’s a hybrid of ice cream and cheesecake.  What makes it even better is that it doesn’t require an hour of baking, cooling then chilling.  It’s instant satisfaction and who doesn’t want that in the midst of a hot sweltering summer day, even if you do have fully functioning central air?  The salted caramel nutella is crowned with the glory of homemade salted caramel.  And did I mention that it’s my recipe for 3 minute salted caramel sauce?  Softened ice cream gets blended with rich and indulgent nutella then gets generously laced with the salty sweet bite of luxurious caramel sauce.  Finally, the cake batter milkshake tastes like birthday cake in a cup.  It’s fun and sassy, making you feel like you have something to celebrate.  That is, besides just being generally awesome.

    Girl, of COURSE you make a cake batter milkshake with your own homemade cake mix! I might hate you if I didn’t love you. hehe! Glad you’ve got the move over and done with, and maybe one of these days I’ll be reading regularly enough to figure out where you moved TO! haha Hope you’ve been well other than the yucky process of moving.

    Hey Brain! It’s kinda sorta fixed. The unit is so old, we’ve got it temporarily running until a new unit comes in but that means that the majority of the house is facing the sun plus no insulation and it’s 78 degrees at best in here but I’m getting through it with…milkshakes! =)
