Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Milkshake

If you read this blog regularly you know that I’m really taking full advantage of my patio this summer! I love being outside with the family. It’s our little daily escape from work, screens, and stress.

However, here in Oklahoma it can sometimes be a bit of a challenge to convince family and friends that what they really want to do is relax outside in the heat. Moving people away from their air conditioning can be a challenge, but if you want to have a summer night with no electronics distracting you, then you need to get outdoors.

That’s why I made a little secret trip to http://lbx.la/FMT9 this morning. I bought some cookies, some Breyer’s Natural Vanilla Ice Cream and some Promised Land Milk so that I could make Cookies & Cream milkshakes for our next outdoor game night.

Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Milkshake

Yield: 1 milkshake

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 scoops of Breyer’s Natural Vanilla Ice Cream
  • 1/2 cup of Promised Land Milk
  • 3-4 chocolate and vanilla sandwich cookies

optional: whipped cream for topping

Directions:

  1. Mix together in a blender, then poor into the glass. Top with whipped cream and a cookie!

My plan is to coax everyone outside with the games and then keep them there with the milkshakes! Milkshakes are a great summer dessert, not only because they’re obviously cold and delicious, but because they offer more calcium and protein than other desserts, and nutrients can be hard to come by in the summer months when you don’t want to eat as much as usual.

I love to use Promised Land milk in milkshakes because it’s creamier than other brands and is higher in protein because it comes from Jersey cows.

Of course, I also love Breyer’s Natural Vanilla because it’s made with simple ingredients like fresh cream, sugar, milk and Rainforest Alliance Certified vanilla beans.
