September is “Shake Month” and a milkshake can be as freaky or as simple as you like.
Our recipes this month all start with the same base, a couple of scoops of ice cream, and a cup of milk, then just pick your flavours. Add a handful off cookies for a classic cookies and cream shake, for PB&J it’s 2 spoons of peanut butter and some jam. For a beautiful purple blackberry shake, it’s the perfect time to pick a bowl of fresh blackberries, add that to the mix with a spoonful of honey and your done. For extra smoothness sieve your blackberry milkshake to avoid a pippy shake!
Top your shakes with cream and decorate your glass if you are feeling fancy. To get the ‘ombre’ effect on the blackberry shake, mix some cream with the blackberry mix for the top half of your shake then top with a mint leaf.
