It has actually been amazingly sunny in N. Ireland for the past few days, and I've been able to enjoy a couple of good milkshakes from a shop close to my university. But I had an idea...some might call it revolutionary. What about a donut milkshake? This is my first attempt, and it turned out pretty well - perfect for a day like today :)
Ingredients for 1 shake:
1 donut (flavour of your choice - I used a rolo one)
1-1 1/2 cups of milk
1 tsp of vanilla essence
3 generous scoops of ice cream
chocolate or candy/whipped cream (optional for topping - I didn't have any in the house at the time
any blender, I wash it out with cold water to chill it slightly
Step 1: Prepare the donut
Place the donut in the freezer for a while to cool it down, and solidfy it if it has been sitting at room temperature and melted slightly. Just slice the donut into around about 1 inch chunks so the blender can do it's job. Add the pieces into the blender.
Step 2: Adding the other ingredients
Add the ice cream and along with it the milk and vanilla essence. You can add some sugar to sweeten it, but don't add too much otherwise the milkshake will be gritty. I also added some chocolate, which should be chopped up into small pieces because my blender doesn't seem to deal with it too well.
Step 3: Blend it!
Put the lid on and blend until smooth. In a few seconds you'll have a perfect milkshake.
Step 4: Enjoy your milkshake!
Pour into your favourite milkshake glass, and enjoy! Top with whipped cream and chocolate pieces if you have some.
