You may find this hard to believe, but I have been playing with my ice cream maker and coming up with different flavors these past weeks. Oh yeah! And since I didn't want to change my blog name to East Meets West Ice Cream Fanatic in Kitchen (name too long?), I decided not to post all of my ice cream adventures (yet). Well, maybe just one more won't hurt right? This one has a little twist in that I am making milk shake from my ice cream, and it's a different subject, right? TOTOALLY!
Hubs was amused as he watched me make ice cream in the ice cream maker that was ready in 25 mins., then turn around and made a milk shake with the homemade ice cream (it's soft serve consistency was perfect for milk shakes) for my little guests. Guess he's relieved that I am using my kitchen electrics instead of letting it sit in the basement cabinets, hidden from the world!
Summertime and milkshakes. I remembered visiting local diners with their fun red and chrome interiors whenever we were traveling cross country over the school holidays. We would order a milk shake with cheeseburgers, and apple pie. What I liked most about some of these diners were their atmosphere and unique lingo. And since a white cow is the diner's lingo for a vanilla milk shake, here's a white cow recipe.
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 pint vanilla ice cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
And if you like a malted shake (yum!), add 1-2 Tbs of malted milk powder to the shake.
