Strawberry Milkshakes



And let the strawberry recipes begin!  We went to our Farmer's Market on Saturday morning and saw strawberries at a few stands.  I sent my husband to ask one of the people when they were starting pick your own for the year.  He said they started it last week!  Our plans immediately changed that afternoon, and off we were to the strawberry patch.  Our 6 year old had a great time, and was on his own quest for the perfect strawberry!  He did so much better this year vs last year, the weather may have helped as well.

When we get home with our 13 pounds of strawberries, I immediately started prepping for all the recipes I want to make.  My husband, on the other hand went straight to the computer in search of his own recipe.  He deemed Strawberry Milkshakes to be the winner.  It was the first thing finished, so it was our first yummy treat!  Aside from the many berries we ate along the way :)  And this is great for the homemade vanilla ice cream we had in the freezer (that recipe will come someday as well).

Hooray for strawberry milkshakes! They're fantastic and I'm sure this one was a total winner :-) Hooray for summertime fruits! Those strawberries would also go well in a cold slushie or cold alcoholic refreshment!

Erin, I would love one of those shakes right now. And a piece of that peanut butter pie from your last post would be nice too!

I've made a lot of vanilla and chocolate milk shakes in my day...and now I'm wondering why I've never made a strawberry one!??? It would be my first choice...especially with fresh summer berries! YUM!

Oh, my family would love this! So yummy and made with real strawberries. The shock ;) I will have to bookmark this recipe fo shizzle. Every time it's strawberry picking time here, it's raining cats and dogs and we rarely have a good time to go. Glad to see you guys had a perfect day :)

You've just brought back the happiest of memories, picking strawberries in Scotland. No wonder your 6-yr old had great fun, there's nothing to beat it. What a great way to finish off a wonderful afternoon with such a fragrant milk shake: looks fabulous!
