I always feel like once everyone’s back at school, it should be fall. I’m ready for cold weather and changing trees and people wearing sweaters and in reality, it’s still in the 90’s here. I know I’m going to miss this in another two months when we have our first snow, but right now we’re baking.
So it’s fun to have a cool, special treat when the kids get home from school. And on Friday…the start of the weekend? Well, the perfect time for a milkshake after a hard week’s work, if you ask me.
This recipe was simple — just vanilla ice cream, chocolate graham crackers (we used Trader Joe’s Chocolatey Cat Cookies, but you can use any chocolate grahams), and some milk — whole milk for best results but I don’t think it matters too much. This recipe makes enough for two large servings — or four small children (who would probably disagree with me and tell you that you really should double it. But trust me, it was enough.)
Blend it all up, maybe top with whipped cream, and serve with a fun straw to kick off the weekend!
- 2 c vanilla ice cream
- 2 large handfuls chocolate graham crackers
- 1 c whole milk
- Put all ingredients in a blender.
- Blend on high until cookies are crushed and milkshake is blended.
