Alright, Iâ€™m back to posting. Sorry Iâ€™ve gotten a bit behind. In the next few days Iâ€™ll get all my ice cream reviews from the past week listed (yes, I’ve still been trying something new each day!).
As I have enormous amounts of unconsumed ice cream in my freezer, I have decided to do some more â€œhomemadeâ€ ice cream recipes, using store bought ice cream and other commonly found ingredients. (Oh, and Iâ€™ve realized buying new ice cream each day isnâ€™t very economically feasible for someone who has recently returned to grad schoolâ€¦). Since not everyone has an ice cream maker or the time to make homemade ice cream, I’ll experiment and review these pseudo-homemade recipes.
Todayâ€™s choice was a raspberry shake. I blended:
- 1/3 cup unsweetened frozen raspberries
- Â¾ cup Turkey Hill Vanilla Ice Cream
- A few tablespoons of skim milk.
It was delicious. I like my shakes a little on the thin side (malts should be thick, not shakes) and so I used a little more milk than some might. I think the quality of the vanilla ice cream was what made this recipe so good. It was sweet and fruity, but not overwhelmingly so.
As you can see from the picture, my cat was a big fan of this dessert!
