Coconut vanilla milkshake

According to our weekly menu we were supposed to buy take out yesterday. But my husband came home and said that he wanted to make us burgers. And who am I to decline him? He made us delicious burgers with blue cheese and bacon on top. And I made my favourite guacamole from Dos Caminos in New York City. I’ve been there two times now, last year with Lena & Anne and the year before that with my husband. In a couple of week’s I’ll visit again. I just love their guacamole and Mexican street corn. Yum! Anyway, back to last night. I decided to make some coconut vanilla milkshake to go along with the burgers. I found a nice recipe in Bobby Flay’s cookbook “Bobby Flay’s Burgers, Fries, and Shakes”, but I decided to use different proportions and quantities. The outcome was wonderful, creamy and delicious!

    Coconut vanilla milkshake
    (Makes two very large glasses)

    250 coconut cream (this is not the same as coconut milk!)
    250 ml whole milk
    400 ml high quality vanilla ice cream, packed into a measuring cup (yes, ml/dl is actually used for volume too)
    optional: desiccated unsweetened coconut

    Combine milk and coconut cream in a blender until smooth. Add ice cream and blend until incorporated and fluffy. Pour into two large glasses and serve immediately. Optional: add some desiccated unsweetened coconut on top.
