My husband woke up coughing and a little feverish this morning. UGH... a darn COLD!
I knew I'd need to set aside my chores and make the long drive to town to buy him some Nyquil. On the way, it dawned on me to use the Nyquil and a few more ingredients to turn that nasty-tasting wonder-elixer into a delicious (as possible;-) Smoothie for this Instructable's Contest. The Grocery Store was out of Cherry Flavor, so this was a REAL challenge! ;-O)
Seriously.... this Mint-Chocolate Smoothie tastes almost as good as it looks. For a Nyquil cocktail, it tastes GREAT!!! ;-D
I would also like to add that my husband now thinks I'm an angel disguised as his wife. (I sure have him fooled. ;-)
Disclaimer: Use Nyquil ONLY as directed on the bottle. This Cold/Flu Remedy Makeover is for sick people and NOT for recreational purposes... but you already knew that, right?
1 Tablespoon/ Dose Cup of Nyquil
1 piece Spearmint Candy
2 Tablespoon Water
Vanilla Ice Cream
Cool Whip frozen topping
Microwave the Spearmint candy and water until the candy is melted. Use the low setting. Stir as needed. It won't take but a minute.
Add the Nyquil, stir it well and put the liquid in the freezer. The Nyquil won't freeze, but it will get super cold and that makes for a better Smoothie.
Take the chilled Nyquil liquid from the freezer and add 2 or 3 BIG scoops of Vanilla Ice Cream and blend quickly with a fork or whisk.
Pour the Sleepy-time (rest-and-get-a-good-nights'-sleep) Smoothie into a Ice cold Glass.
Top with a dollop of Cool Whip and drizzle generously with chocolate sauce.
Garnish with a Strawberry and serve right before bedtime.
