Favorite Recipe: Magic Milkshakes

I know, I know it's a little late in the season to post a recipe for milkshakes.  And do you really need a recipe for milkshakes?

Well, I love milkshakes and so do my kiddos.  We make them all year round.  BUT we don't have ice cream available all the time and I hate to think how many calories and grams of fat I'm sucking up that straw.  Here's where the need for a recipe comes in.  During a recent internet search I stumbled upon a great website called Hillbilly Housewife.

The Hillbilly Housewife has all sorts of great low cost cooking from scratch ideas.  Among them a wonderful recipe for milkshakes that doesn't use ice cream!  The recipe uses ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry.  You can find the recipe HERE - just scroll down to find it.  It's between the Chai Tea recipe and the Instant Cafe Au Lait.  MMM...

Oh and here's some pictures of the most recent Magic Milkshakes we've made.



We also made chocolate banana, chocolate peanut butter, and vanilla.  All were thick, creamy, and delicious!

The heat is still on in Jamaica so I could do with a milkshake right now. I have not had one recently but I have had many over the years especially when I journeyed into Kingston and they tasted so good. Thanks for sharing this recipe. One can make one right at home!
