Summer is flying by (as always!) and we are trying to get everything on our summer bucket list checked off. From time to time, we add new items to the list as we think of them. We are enjoying our annual stay-cation this week and decided to start a new tradition- a make your own milkshake party! While baby N was taking a nap one day, the rest of us concocted our own milkshakes to enjoy.
To get started, I bought several types of ice cream flavors and International Delight flavored creamers. I opted to pick out two of the Cold Stone creamery flavors since we wanted a great ice cream flavor. The two flavors I selected were the Cold Stone Creamery Sweet Cream and the Cold Stone Cream Founder’s Favorite (it tastes like a brownie sundae!) We also added in a small amount of milk, blended it up, and enjoyed our own personalized milkshake recipe.
My three year old son went first and he (predictably!) picked chocolate ice cream and the Sweet Cream creamer:
Since I love my coffee and cream so much, I picked coffee ice cream and the Sweet Cream creamer:
And finally, my husband -a huge Brownie Sundae fan, picked vanilla ice cream and Founder’s Favorite Brownie Sunday creamer flavored.
- 1 cup ice cream (I used vanilla, chocolate, and coffee for our 3 types of milkshakes)
- 3 tablespoons International Delight flavored creamers (I used Cold Stone Creamery Sweet Cream and Founder's Favorite for our 3 types of milkshakes)
- ½ cup milk
- Whipped cream (optional)
- Chocolate syrup (optional)
- Have each milkshake party participant pick out their ice cream and International Delight flavored creamer combination.
- For each milkshake, add the ice cream, International Delight flavored creamer, and milk to a blender. Blend for 30 seconds (or until fully blended.) Pour into a glass cup and top with whipped cream and chocolate syrup if desired. Serve with a fun colored paper straw! Rinse out the blender and repeat for any additional milkshakes.
We were all very happy with our milkshake combinations! Speaking of milkshakes, what do you call these? I know in New England, most people refer to ice cream and milk blended together as frappes. I grew up calling them milkshakes and the word frappe doesn’t come to mind as easily for me. What’s your favorite milkshake/frappe flavor?
