I’ve never been one for milkshakes.
I like to eat my calories rather than drink them, especially when it comes to dessert.
Though I used to really love the hot fudge milkshake at Dairy Queen – have you ever tried that? It is unreal.
But regular old milkshakes don’t do much for me.
Then I saw this in the recent issue of Bon Appetit.
The day I find that magazine in my mailbox is the best day of the month. I just pour over it.
And I get hungry.
And eat cookies or pita chips or whatever is in reach, while really wishing I was eating each dish off every page.
That magazine makes me eat my emotions.
Now I’m reconsidering my take on milkshakes.
This was so delicious.
Even better – the peach was perfectly juicy and ripe. I love sweet peaches.
I almost wish I would have added a second one.
And you really only need one cookie for the shake.
But I bought two. Just so I could eat one by it’s lonesome.
Totally worth it.
from Bon Appetit, September 2010
1 cup milk
1/2 cup ice cream
1-2 fresh peaches, chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 snickerdoodle cookie + crumbles for garnish
Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth. Garnish with cookie crumbs.
I need one of these for breakfast.
It’s Monday, so that’s my excuse. Not that I ever needed one before.
