I bought couple of pounds of cherries to make cherry liqueur but the almost 7 yo and I ended up munching on a bunch of it. Since I had no plans of going to the grocery store anytime soon to pick up more cherries... it is just too hot... I made Jalapeno infused Vodka instead and used up the last couple of handfuls of cherries in this yummy Cherry Milkshake with Almond Milk. Of course, you can use any milk of your choice - chocolate milk might be a good idea too.
The husband is not particularly fond of cherries, so I made just enough for the two of us. We chilled indoors since it was too hot to venture out, read books that we had picked up from the library and enjoyed tall glasses of a very yummy and indulgent Cherry Milkshake with Almond Milk while the husband watched soccer matches on his phone over a bowl of ice cream.
Ingredients: Serves 2
- Vanilla Ice cream - 6 generous scoops
- Almond Milk - 1/2 Cup, cold
- Pitted Cherries - 1 Cup
- Whipped Cream for garnish
- Chocolate Syrup for garnish
Add the cherries to the mixer and give it a few pulses. Pour in the milk and once again give it a couple of pulses. Scoop out and add the vanilla ice cream to the blender and mix till everything comes together. Pour into glasses, top it with some whipped cream, drizzle a little chocolate sauce and do not forget to put a cherry on top! Hah!
