Whenever I think of summertime I think of desserts...and lots of them. It's hot and with the sun's later bedtime I tend to stay awake past 9. Though I haven't given up my cupcake obsession or dedication to chocolate, I'm showing off an alternative I created one night when I was in the mood for something sweet but didn't have an easy solution in the freezer.
With three basic ingredients (most notably sans ice cream) this is probably the easiest and most nutritious 'milkshake' you'll ever taste. I start out with a bag of frozen berries (I'm using raspberries & blackberries), followed by a heaping scoop of fudge (my favorite is Fenton's) and a glug of milk (I've got fat free in the house most of the time, but it would probably be even tastier with something like 2%). Mix it all up in the blender and you've got yourself a heavenly treat that tastes just like a milkshake.
Sometimes if I'm having a really bad day or need a little extra umph I'll sprinkle a little extra chocolate syrup on top.
