I have always been a summer girl at heart. It may or may not have to do with all of the amazing frozen treats that are totally acceptable to consume on hot summer days. I get a little giddy thinking about all that yumminess – don’t you?
Summer time means that our freezer gets stocked up with all kinds of frozen treats to keep us cool on hot summer days. We each have our favorite brands and flavors so variety is key. I am an absolute sucker for the Klondike HEATH Bars and the Good Humor Reese’s Ice Cream Bars. Yeah. I know. Shocking.
My hubby has been really enjoying the Magnum Ice Cream Mini Double Caramel Bars. If you have not tried these yet – DO! So decadent and delicious! And mini! Kind of perfect actually :) I’ve been noticing that Bryce is partial to these as well. Can’t blame the kid!
Now we always have a few quarts of Breyers in the freezer and almost always have some of their amazing strawberry ice cream on hand. Summer just isn’t summer without my dad’s strawberry milkshakes and they always come out best with Breyers strawberry ice cream.
I can still vividly remember the incredible flavor of my dad’s strawberry milkshakes. He would make them every summer and all five of us kids would be impatiently waiting for that blender to stop and my dad to take the final taste test and give the go ahead.
Those sweet, cold, delicious milkshakes will forever stand out in my mind and in my tastebuds memory banks. It took years for me to figure out that his secret ingredient was malted milk powder. That magical ingredient is what makes this recipe so incredible!
Last year my little brother took my dad’s recipe to a whole new level with the addition of strawberry ice cream topping. Now, he assures me that is just as good with strawberry jam or preserves but I haven’t tried it that way yet.
- ½ qt Breyer's Strawberry Ice Cream
- 2 cups cold milk
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- ½ cup malted milk powder
- ½ cup strawberry ice cream topping
- Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
- Serve topped with fresh whipped cream if desired.
Totally, totally amazing. You absolutely must make this. Soon!
