This recipe makes a gorgeous milkshake.. I invented it myself, when I realised that I didn't feel like eating an ice cream [too sickly!] and decided to try something a bit different. Smiley

This recipe makes enough 'shake for one person. Double it for two people, etc.
1 x Galaxy ice cream [either just the vanilla kind, or the new "Dreamy Caramel" ones]
4 x ice cubes
a little full fat milk

1 x food liquidiser
a glass

1. Break your Galaxy ice cream up into smaller pieces, quarters should do. Put them in the liquidiser.
2. Put your ice cubes in the liquidiser with the ice cream.
3. Add a little milk to the mixture.
4. Put the lid on the liquidiser [you'd be surprised at how many people forget to do that!] and whir away until the mixture looks smooth. There may be some very, very small chocolate bits, but those melt in your mouth and add to the delicious flavour.
5. By now it should be a light brown or creamy white, and slightly frothy due to the liquidising. It should be of a slightly thinner consistency than well-made custard.
6. If the mixture is very thick, you can either drink it as is, or add a little more milk and liquidise some more.
7. Pour it into the glass, and enjoy!

Note: I'm sure you can do this recipe with other similar ice creams, too.

Oh, I knew I was going to have this problem, what with the most part of this forum being American..
Galaxy is a brand of chocolate, that now makes their own ice creams. You can buy the ice cream in packs of 4 in most supermarkets.. It's basically a chocolate covered "bar" of vanilla ice cream, though they're introducing new flavours.

I'm sure this 'shake would work with almost any ice cream though [you could try it with Mars, for example]. Smiley

ah, thanks for clarifying. i wonder if you could accomplish the same thing by blending up some chocolate chips and adding vanilla ice cream? either way, sounds yummy.

Mmm that does sound good. Maybe Klondike bars would work as a Galaxy substitute? They sound sorta similar from Izzy's description of the Galaxy bar. Or a Dove bar without stick?? Worth a shot. Cookies or candy would be good add ins too. We do some shakes with Andes candies and oreos at my work. Think they would taste great with the Galaxy-type bar blended in... Mmm you have all made me want a shake.

Ah, Jamie - I do believe that Dove is the American [& French] equivalent to Galaxy chocolate, only under a different name. So I'm sure they would work, what with being made from the same chocolate!  Cheesy

Mmmm I wish our blender wasn't being stored in some random place in the house (=cannot locate the blender to save my life!) The shake sounds really really good right now. mmm.
