Cookies N' Cream Blueberry Shake & TGIF

Did your jaw just drop? You must think.. it must be her crazy Friday talk.. I  thought I will leave you all to a nice weekend with this crazy milkshake that I concocted. For a change really, I had been baking or making some kind of dessert, that I thought, why not a drink? But not just any drink.. it has to be MILKSHAKE.

LOVE this Mosaic water colour painted art: taken while I was in Melbourne, Crown Casino
Okay I admit, I wasn't in the right mind, as I was stressed from work and had craving for a sinful drink. While I am not a fan of drinking wine or booze for the matter, cause I strongly believe that wine is to be enjoyed and not to be gobbled down like water. I bet all of you foodies out there will agree with me on this statement. Sadly, I just don't tolerate people who drinks wine, but not enjoying it with a good meal, or dessert or maybe in front of a fire place in a cold winter-y night. Well that's just my mind talking.

Anyways, since it's FRIDAY.. woo hoo! it has to be one of my favourite day of the week. I shall spare you with a long post and leave you with my Cookies N' Cream Blueberry Shake. This is so simple.
Equipments required? A blender, cookies and cream ice-cream (brand of your choice), blueberry syrup (ultra simple to make), full cream milk or for "weight watchers", skim milk or low fat milk works too. All you got to do is put all together (1/ 2 cup milk + 6 medium sized scoops cookies N' cream ice-cream) except the Blueberry Syrup and blend away like there's no tomorrow. To assemble, scoop a tablespoon or couple (ahem.. that's what I did) then pour the cookies N' cream shake over. Let me tell you, it's the most beautiful colour combination I have seen.. the swirls and the thickness of the shake. Hectic day = GONE..Hello Yummmmmmilicious!!

  4. Oh my goodness! Love all the flavour combos in this shake. I could so drink one right now. If only I had all the ingredients in! Haagen-Dazs is one of my favourite ice cream makers too.

  10. Yep. I agree. I don't drink wine very often because I only do on social occasions and then only to enhance the flavor of the food I'm eating. I'm glad you found something equally decadent.
