Apologies for the lightning post today but I've been working like a dog all week (whinge, whinge, moan, moan) and I won't have the chance to cook, never-mind photograph, anything for the next few days. This is my sacrificial tribute to my little one for denying her a trip to Eddie Rockets. Not only because I was chained to the oven all day (did I mention moan, moan, whinge, whinge?) but also because fast food can only be an occasional weakness and I don't know if I'll make it through the easter holidays without caving. I admit it I like the onion rings!
Anyway, they recently added an Oreo milkshake to the menu and who wouldn't be seduced especially when you add the whipped cream and the whole Oreo on top. And, as this is my second Oreo inspired post (with more to come)I think we may be developing a little Oreo habit of our own. I suspect Eddie Rocket's make theirs with cookies & cream ice-cream blended with milk. This one gives more oreoishness (sod the spellcheck it's a word!) and less straw-clogging by blitzing whole Oreos, vanilla ice-cream, milk and a couple of ice-cubes. You could take it to a whole other level by using chocolate ice-cream. Possibly not the most intelligent close to bed-time drink for a child just granted two weeks freedom but it's still relatively early, I'm sure she'll be asleep by this time tomorrow.
Hope to rejoin the human race when I can string two words together.
Blitz a large scoop of vanilla (or any flavour you choose) ice-cream, 2-3 broken Oreos, about 200ml of milk and a couple of ice-cubes in a blender until smooth. Add more milk if it is too thick. Top with a dollop of whipped cream and a whole oreo for munching.
Makes 1 greedy milkshake.
