Vanilla Milkshakes

Summer vacation from school is winding down quicker than most children want to admit. My grandson has spent much of his summer at my house, helping out with the gardening and other chores, while still finding time for swimming and golf most days. He's always willing to help out in the kitchen, and he has been interested in finding a good recipe for a milkshake. We tested some different versions, but this simple one is his favorite.

Vanilla Milkshake

2 cups vanilla ice cream
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a blender, combine ice cream, milk, and vanilla. Blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve. Makes 2 servings.

Two cups of ice cream, one cup of milk . . .

. . . and a teaspoon of vanilla extract, all combined in the blender.

Blend all the ingredients together until smooth.

Pour into glasses and serve. That's one cool way to beat the heat.
