Phaedra and I were thinking of a nice dessert to help us cool off during all these crazy summer heat waves. It dawned on us that we have a blender and we have ice cream...not much more thought was needed. Classic milkshakes are pretty simple to make. All it takes is combing about 5 scoops of ice cream (you may find you need more or less), a teaspoon of vanilla extract, and 1 cup of milk. Throw it all in the blender and blend until everything is nice and smooth. Then all that's left is to enjoy! For other ideas try some of these recipes I found at Delish.
