TIBS Old Fashioned Strawberry Milkshake

There is nothing like an old fashioned strawberry milkshake on a hot Summer day to cure what ails you. I love a good milkshake. It evokes memories of days gone by when baby boomers sat around the soda shop and listened to oldies like Bill Haley And The Comets. My Dad used to tell me stories about the soda shop at the drug store in Rule, TX in the late 50's. He said it was to die for.

ingredients

directions

  • Hull the strawberries and slice them. Place the strawberries in a bowl. Sprinkle the sugar over them and stir in the vanilla. Put the strawberries in the freezer for about an hour.
  • Place two pint glasses (or four smaller glasses) in the freezer to chill.
  • When the strawberries have frozen solid, pull them out and put them in the blender with 3/4 cup milk. Be sure to include the juices in the bowl.
  • Blend until the strawberries are pulverized thoroughly and no chunks remain.
  • Add the powdered or malted milk and blend. NOTE: I prefer powdered myself. It adds depth to the texture and gives it extra creaminess. In addition, you can also add 2 tbsp of whipped cream as well. Optional depending on how creamy you like it.
  • Remove the jar from the blender and add the ice cream. NOTE: Do not be cheap buying the ice cream. No artificial flavors or dyes. Like the saying goes, "You get what you pay for.".
  • With a spoon, stir in the milk and strawberries. Place the jar on the blender. Blend thoroughly. If it doesn't blend well or sticks, carefully add up to 1/4 cup of milk. Stir and/or shake if necessary.
  • Remove chilled glasses from the freezer.
  • Pour into the chilled glasses. Top with whipped cream and garnish with strawberries.
  • Serve immediately.
