Gingerbread Milkshake

Welcome to day #4 of Christmas Week, a multi-blogger event co-hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Jen of Juanita’s Cocina. Today’s theme for Christmas Week is “Gingerbread Surprise”. Make sure you visit all the participating bloggers today to see what special dish they whipped up for you.

This is my second milkshake of the week.  Well, you must be wondering why all these frozen treats in the middle of a Christmas themed event.  We had a small wave of heat in our area and had 70+ degree days... so the cool treats with a fun Christmas theme worked out perfectly.  Of course if you have freezing cold weather where you live, just snuggle up under a blanket and enjoy this frozen treat too. :)


Ingredients:
3 cups vanilla ice cream
1-2 tsp ground ginger powder (depending how strong you want the ginger flavor)
1/2-1 tsp ground cinnamon
2-3 gingersnap cookies (more for garnish)
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups milk (use less milk if you want it very thick)
1 Tbs molasses

Directions:
Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth (use the lower range of ginger and cinnamon spices to start).  Taste and adjust spices as needed.   Serve in a glass with straw or a spoon.  Garnish with more ginger snaps (whole or crumbled).  Serves 2-3.  Enjoy

  6. Here in Florida, a holiday milkshake is always welcome. In fact, I wish the temperatures would dip enough that I could wear a sweater and maybe enjoy something hot, but in the meantime, a cold gingerbread treat is going to hit the spot!
