Chocolate Stout Milkshake

This is my St. Patrick’s day gift, from me to you. Well, it’s technically not my gift. After all, it does come from the gentlemen who gave us Baked: New Frontiers in Baking. It’s not a difficult recipe by any stretch of the imagination, but it is one of the few recipes that I’ve put on the table in the past year or so that has received an A+ from all.

And as a side question: How awesome is it to put beer in a milkshake?

  • 2 cups chocolate ice cream
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup Stout beer, chilled
  • 1 Tablespoon powdered malt

Put all ingredients in a blender, and mix until smooth. Serve in a chilled glass.

Pumpkin Milkshake

Pumpkin Milkshake

This is where I show some of my snobbery. There’s a canned product in the ingredient list. Because of this, I have this crazy idea that this isn’t a real recipe.

This is only one of the many neuroses that I am burdened with.

This recipe is based off of one called Pumpkin nog. But in reviewing the ingredients, it’s clear that it’s a milkshake, and not a nog. For those adults in the audience, add 1 cup of spiced rum to the mixture. Rum helps me get over the whole “There’s a canned product in my recipe”

  • 1 (29 ounce) can pumpkin puree
  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mace
  • 1 cup whipped cream (optional)
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg(optional)

Place the pumpkin, ice cream, milk and cinnamon, nutmeg and mace into a blender. Pulse until thickened.

To serve, top with whipped cream and a pinch of nutmeg.
