memorial day milkshake

May 31, 2011
I had a great holiday weekend.  The weather couldn't have been more perfect for outdoor tomfoolery.  I spent all day Saturday with friends on a tree-top adventure in Pennsylvania, climbing, scaling and ziplining.

And Sunday?

Sunday I took a bike trip.  I have something new to cross off!  I completed number three on my list by taking a 15 mile bike trip to a nice park in a nearby town to picnic.
Sunny and hot. 
Found Tiny Tim on the side of the road. 
The bike trip left me sunburned and in need of a mushy-cushy bicycle seat.  Clearly, after one burns so many calories peddling for an extended period of time, a  calorie-filled milkshake was in order.
S'mores Milkshake
1 cup vanilla ice cream
1 cup milk (I used almond milk)
20 mini-marshmallows (plus extra for garnish)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 graham crackers
pinch of salt
1/4 cup milk chocolate chips

  1. Set oven to broil.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. Pour marshmallows on lined baking sheet and broil until tops are well-browned.
  3. Add ice cream, vanilla, salt and milk to mixer and blend until smooth.  Add toasted marshmallows and graham crackers to ice cream mixture and pulse until incorporated.  
  4. Pour into a glass, garnish with crumbled graham crackers and toasted marshmallows.

But, what do you do with the chocolate chips? The recipe calls for them, but the directions don't say when to add them in.
