The other day, I mentioned why I so love my immersion blender. Proof is in the pudding, or the milkshake. I was making one for my honey, who is sick as a dog. Milkshakes make everything better.
Team Milkshake is as easy as can be: Milk, Good Ice Cream, Vanilla. We're making a good old-fashioned vanilla milkshake.
Start with 3 good scoops of ice cream.
Add 2/3 cup of cold milk of your choosing (skim, 1%, 2%, whole).
Add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla, but please not imitation!
It only takes 30 seconds or so, and the clean up is easy.
And the results are worth it; I promise.

*If you'd like, add chocolate, frozen or fresh strawberries, caramel, whatever blows your skirt up! The options are endless!
