On a brighter note, since i have a limited idea on what to do with my 1kg of strawberries, I decided to blend half of it up and make some strawberry milkshake. Yes, fresh strawberries, none of that McDonald's crap. I would like to say it's healthier than McDonald's...but thanks to the ice-cream, it only wins by a little. I could've gone for the low-fat version but... Nah! There's nothing wrong with indulging yourself in some guilty pleasure before you revert back to your summer dieting mode... right?
from Billie's Favorite Strawberry Milk Shake
- 500g fresh strawberries
- 1 qt. vanilla ice cream
- 1/2 cup milk
- Process all ingredients in a blender until desired consistency, stopping to scrape down sides.
- Serve immediately.
- For low-fat, cheaper milkshake, replace vanilla ice-cream with frozen strawberry yogurt.
- For a thinner shake, add up to 1/4 cup more milk.
