JUN 20th | TODAY IS:
NATIONAL VANILLA MILKSHAKE DAY – I rarely drink milkshakes but if I were to order one, it would be vanilla. I wonder if, with the advent of fancy drinks like ice caps and lattes, the milkshake has taken a hit in popularity. I sincerely hope that it survives lactose intolerance and the nut milk craze because milkshakes are iconic.
My husband likes chocolate and thinks I am crazy to prefer vanilla but it has always been my favourite. I also prefer vanilla ice cream and vanilla Girl Guide cookies.
There are many great milkshakes in the world but the best are homemade. I have my grandmother’s milkshake maker. It is a green appliance with a large metal cup and weighs a ton. When I was a teen, my dad would make occasionally make milkshakes with milk and vanilla ice cream. They were delicious!
I have not used this contraption in several years but I think it is time to change that and enjoy a lovely, cold beverage.
