Confessions of a Mediocre Cook: Velvet Milkshakes = Pure Decadence

I just discovered a most scrumptious recipe that I call Velvet Milkshakes. A step WAY above your average milkshakes, these, my friends, are luxury.

Here's the recipe:

Velvet Milkshakes
3 cups milk
1 1/2 cups ice cream, softened
1 (3.4 oz or 3.9 oz) package instant pudding mix

Process all in a blender til thoroughly mixed. Blender will be very full. Serve. Makes 5 cups.

You can choose whatever flavor combo you like. The first time I made these, I used chocolate pudding and chocolate ice cream. The second time, I tried chocolate pudding and coffee ice cream. Both were tasty.

One tip: don't skimp on the ice cream. I didn't measure it either time, but the second time I must have used too little because the shakes were thin. Delicious, but thin. And thick is what you want.

Serve these this summer and you're sure to enjoy rock star status!


I love reading comments! And I appreciate the time you take to leave them. Thanks!
