From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite... This lovely soda-like treat will soon be retired from my kitchen. The Silver Fox is nearly back to fighting weight and once he's there, I won't be making this cooler for him on a regular basis. Till then, he gets to revel in its creamy goodness and forget about the caloric punch it packs. This is a delicious drink, but if you are watching your weight you'll have to make this a sometime treat. You can, of course, make it with less rich ingredients, but I really don't recommend it. There are certain treats that I place into an "all or nothing at all" category. This is one of them. I suspect those of you who try this will love it. Here's how it is made.
Strawberry and Cream Cooler...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite
1 cup whole milk
3/4 cups softened strawberry or vanilla ice cream
1/4 to 1/2 cup strawberry syrup or melted, strained strawberry jam
2-3 ice cubes
Whipped Cream (optional)
Combine milk, ice cream, syrup and ice cubes in jar of an electric blender. Whirl until blended. Pour into 2 tall glasses. Top with whipped cream if desired. Yield: 2 servings.
