I'm Kristin. I like to think that I blog about food. But I really blog about desserts, exercise, t.v., books, the ridiculousness of Alaska...and ice cream.
My relationship with ice cream is complicated. I love it
. That's the most important thing you need to know. The second most important thing is to know that I like stuff in my ice cream. As many toppings, sauces, and flavors as I can cram into it. I create sundaes based off of whatever I have around. Peanut butter, candy bars, Oreos, marshmallows, hot fudge, caramel...all the good stuff.
While it may seem like I'm adventurous... I'm not. I do not eat fruit in
, or around
my ice cream. I do not eat anything "fruity" in
, or around
my ice cream. This means no gummi bears, fruit pies, or, God forbid
, raisins. But worse than fruit in ice cream, is plain
In fact, I get sad when I see people eating that soft-serve stuff. And the one time, at Marble Slab, when my husband ordered the Red, White, and Blue mix, with the strawberries and blueberries? I think I looked at him in disgust. He was understandably puzzled at my reaction. No, darling, I do not want to try it.
So this is the Cake Shake. It's a shake. With cake in it. You can experiment with any flavors you want. I happen to have these chocolate brownies with peanut butter cream cheese icing
in the freezer. But I have a feeling that even a Little Debbie Brownie would be just as tasty. (Chewy, classy, and delicious. What more could you want?)
Peanut Butter Brownie Cake Shake
makes 1 large shake (or 2 small if you feel like sharing; pictured above is 1 small shake)
2 cups of ice cream (PB, chocolate, vanilla, one of those flavors with lots of goodies stuffed inside. It doesn't matter!)
3 T. chocolate syrup (or hot fudge)
3 T. peanut butter
1 T. vanilla
1 brownie, broken into pieces (Use your own judgment on the size. I require lotsa brownie.)
Whipped cream, optional
In a blender, combine the ice cream, chocolate syrup, PB, and vanilla with just enough milk to get it to a milkshake consistency. Toss in half of that brownie and pulse a couple of times.
Pour into a glass (or two) and topped with whipped cream and additional brownie pieces. Yum.
See, that's what I mean. She puts brownies in ice cream. I love her! I know you'll love her too. Go say hi to her over at her home, Kristin's kNook. Thanks again Kristin!
