Vegan MoFo Day 7 – Milkshake!

7 10 2012

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.  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.

I’m with you …. props to the person with that dedication. I’ve been making some homemade ice cream recently and this frappe (I didn’t know it was a milkshake either) sounds really good.
