Milkshakes, lovely milkshakes! Do you love them as much as I do?? I thought this sweet dream up while having a mommy playdate/happy hour. It was a 'grueling' 80 degrees (yes, we are pansies here in Santa Barbara!) and we were sipping on cold white wine. White wine is my favorite summer drink but it didn't seem to quench my summer thirst.
I needed something colder, something more satisfying....
And something more chocolaty!
I made this milkshake a little less heavy by using almond non-dairy ice cream and reduced fat oreo cookies. Hubby said this was one of the most decadent drinks he's had... I would have to agree! It was delicious!!
It's also very easy to adapt for your little ones. Omit the alcohol and add 1/2 cup almond milk. They will love it!
