So Greg had his appendix taken out! He didn’t eat 2 days prior to the surgery and the day after. Already lean, I was willing to make anything for him. Chocolate ice cream milkshake was what he wanted so off I went to find a good recipe. This was delicious. I actually haven’t made a milk shake before – so I have nothing to compare it to – save for the milkshakes at the diner – and they are good, but not too chocolatey. Greg loved, Chris and Andy did too. Chocolatey and “real” tasting were the comments. I should mention that Greg specifically asked for premium ice cream — Greater’s Ice Cream actually. So I put chocolate chocolate chip in and it created little specs of blended chocolate which also added to the quality of the shake. It is not necessary – but do know that your shake will only be as good as the ice cream you put in!
chocolate ice cream milk shake (slightly adapted from food.com)
4 cups milk, cold (I used low fat milk, although full fat would have been better I bet!)
4 cups chocolate ice cream (premium if you can, choc choc chip also good as mentioned above)
1.5 teaspoon cocoa powder
2 teaspoons sugar
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons hot chocolate powder
1 cup chocolate syrup, divided (optional – and home made sauce would have been better, but I didn’t have time)
Blend milk, ice cream, chocolate powder, sugar, salt, cocoa powder in a blender. Process until smooth.
Pour a little chocolate syrup into the bottom and sides of each glass.
Divide mixture among glasses.cover bottom and drizzling syrup in a spiral pattern inside of each glass.
