Happy National Frappe Day!
Did you know that in New England, a frappe is the same thing as a milkshake? I didn’t until Wikipedia told me. I thought I was going to have to make some foofoo coffee drink that I wouldn’t really enjoy (I like simple coffee), but then I found out that I was going to get down with my ice-cream self. It made my day.
So through the magic of Google, I discovered that somebody actually loves strawberry milkshakes enough to buy a domain name. http://www.strawberrymilkshakerecipe.org/. See? And that kind of dedication demanded my respect, so I used their recipe as a starting point.
I had everything in the house, with a few tweaks. I used frozen strawberries, vanilla Coconut Bliss ice cream, and vanilla soy milk (left over from the flan). Because I was using a flavored soy milk I left out the sweetener, and because I was using frozen strawberries I left out the ice cubes. A couple of minutes in the Vitamix and I had a strawberry
milkshake frappe! I haven’t had one in years, so to celebrate I immediately gave myself an ice-cream headache.
I think I’m going to celebrate this every year.
