The difference between shakes and smoothies is all in the fruit. Stay true to ice cream, sorbets and syrups and you have a shake!!

This is a great summer dessert. It is cool and sweet with the tartness of buttermilk appearing on the scene following the sweetness of the ice cream and honey. Many guests have given great reviews of this shake.
