Friday evening I tried to make chicken hoagies with miso barbecue sauce. It was a big fat FAIL. We didn’t care for the barbecue sauce at all. I don’t know if I messed it up, or if our palates are just too American for the salty, somewhat strange flavor of miso. Fortunately, the oven baked fries were still good. But I was still a little bummed, so after dinner I decided to make these milkshakes. They turned out amazing! I found the recipe in Spike’s book “The Good Stuff Cookbook”. I highly recommend. And since they contained blueberries, I felt it was a somewhat virtuous dessert! Hey, perception is reality, right? Haha!
2 cups blueberries, plus a few extra for garnish
2 cups vanilla ice cream
1 cup whole milk (do not use skim milk)
Sweetened whipped cream, if desired
Combine the 2 cups blueberries, ice cream and milk in a blender. Puree until smooth. Pour into four (8 oz.) glasses. If desired, place a dollop of whipped cream on top of each shake and garnish with a few blueberries. Enjoy!
