Summer Indulgence – Cherry Milkshake
Just like how I couldn’t resist making blueberry milkshake when I saw blueberries on sale, I recently saw some cheap cherries and decided to make a milkshake out of them too. I find it more enjoyable to drink my fruits rather than to eat them. And they look prettier too when dressed up like this, don’t you think? ;p Great as a meal or snack on its own, or an after-meal dessert drink.
(Makes one tall glass, or 2 1/2 short glasses for dessert)
– 200g vanilla ice cream
– 1.5 tbsp milk
– 150g fresh cherries
– 2 additional cherries & marshmallows for garnishing (optional)
1. Remove cherry stalk and pit from each cherry. Chop one of the cherries to small dices for garnishing later.
2. Blend ice cream, milk and pitted cherries till smooth, do not overblend or it will become watery.
3. Garnishing ideas: Top with marshmallows and chopped cherries. Make a slit at the bottom of a cherry and slot it to the rim of the glass.
Just a suggestion, I also add a splash of heavy whipping cream to my cherry shakes. Adds a little frothy creaminess. :)
