I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Thick Chocolate Shake

Every once in a while I love to have a good old fashion milk shake. I like it as a dessert or meal. Maybe I should have it for a dinner one of these nights.


THICK CHOCOLATE SHAKE(serves 4)

Ingredients:
*1 1/2 cups whole milk
*1/2 to 3/4 cup powdered chocolate milk mix (I use Nestle's)
*6 cups of a good vanilla ice cream, softened.

Directions:
~Place ice cream in refrigerator for one hour, to soften it up.
~In a blender, blend milk and chocolate milk mix on high for 20 seconds.
~Pulse in ice cream until slightly mixed.

Variation:
`omit chocolate, add 1/4 teaspoon vanilla to milk, pulse in ice cream for a thick vanilla shake.
`omit chocolate, add 1/4 cup fresh chopped strawberries, pulse in ice cream for a thick strawberry shake.
`For a 'Frosty' type shake, omit 1/2 cup milk, and once mixed put it back in the freezer for about 15 minutes.
