This section of the site was originally at the request of Sistah Mar. I haven't posted here in a while but recently came across these milkshake ideas and just had to share. When I was was 14 or 15 I was a soda jerk in a dairy bar. Milkshakes were my fave to make. Try these sometime...

Each recipe makes 2 milkshakes.
1. Vanilla: Blend 1 pint vanilla ice cream, 1/4 cup milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla and a pinch of salt.

2. Toasted Marshmallow: Broil 8 marshmallows on foil, turning, until browned. Make Vanilla Milkshakes (No. 1), adding 6 of the toasted marshmallows. Top with the remaining marshmallows.

3. S’mores: Broil 8 marshmallows on foil, turning, until browned. Blend 1 pint chocolate ice cream, 1/4 cup milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla, a pinch of salt and 6 of the toasted marshmallows. Top with crushed graham crackers and the remaining toasted marshmallows.

4. Fig and Port: Simmer 1 cup port and 1/3 cup chopped dried figs until the liquid is reduced by half; cool, then blend with 1 tablespoon port. Make Vanilla Milkshakes (No. 1); layer in glasses with the port mixture.

5. Strawberry: Blend 1 pint strawberry ice cream, 1 cup strawberries and 1/4 cup milk.

6. Mixed Berry: Make Strawberry Milkshakes (No. 5), replacing the strawberries with 1/2 cup each raspberries and blueberries.

7. Strawberry-Rhubarb: Simmer 1 1/2 cups sliced rhubarb, 2 tablespoons each sugar and water, and 1/4 teaspoon orange zest until soft; cool. Blend with 1/2 cup milk and 1 pint strawberry ice cream.

8. Chocolate Blend: 1 pint chocolate ice cream, 1/4 cup cream and 3 tablespoons chocolate syrup.

9. Corn Cereal: Steep 1 1/2 cups sweetened corn cereal (such as Cap’n Crunch) in 1 1/2 cups hot milk, 30 minutes. Strain and freeze in an ice cube tray. Blend the frozen milk cubes with 1 pint vanilla ice cream and 1 cup cereal. Top with more cereal.

10. Chocolate-Banana: Blend 1 pint chocolate ice cream, 2 frozen bananas and 1/4 cup chocolate milk.

11. Peanut Butter–Banana: Make Chocolate-Banana Milkshakes (No. 10), adding 1/2 cup peanut butter.

12. Boozy Banana: Make Chocolate-Banana Milkshakes (No. 10), adding 2 tablespoons rum.

13. Lemon Meringue: Blend 1 cup each lemon sorbet and vanilla frozen yogurt, 1/4 cup milk and 2 tablespoons jarred lemon curd; pour into glasses. Beat 2 egg whites and 2 tablespoons superfine sugar until stiff. Spoon onto the shakes and brown with a kitchen torch.

14. Raspberry Pavlova: Make Lemon Meringue Milkshakes (No. 13), replacing the lemon sorbet with raspberry sorbet and the lemon curd with 1/2 cup raspberries.

15. Key Lime: Blend 1 pint vanilla frozen yogurt, 1/2 cup milk, and the zest and juice of 6 Key limes.

16. Pina Colada: Blend 1 pint vanilla frozen yogurt, 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks, 1 tablespoon cream of coconut and 2 ounces dark rum. Garnish with pineapple.

17. Coconut Tres Leches: Blend 1 pint vanilla ice cream and 2 tablespoons each sweetened condensed milk and cream of coconut. Stir in 1/2 cup toasted pound cake cubes. Top with toasted shredded coconut.

18. Maple-Walnut Blend: 1 pint vanilla ice cream, 1/2 cup milk and 2 tablespoons maple syrup. Put jarred walnuts in syrup in each glass and top with the ice cream mixture.

19. Mango-Yogurt: Blend 1 pint mango sorbet, 1 chopped mango and 2/3 cup plain kefir or yogurt. Top with chopped mango.

20. Mint Julep: Blend 1 cup each mint ice cream and vanilla frozen yogurt with 2 ounces bourbon. Top with mint leaves.

David, I am trying to remember when was last time that I actually saw a "dairy bar". Other than a dairy queen, that does not count because to be a dairy bar it has to be in a drug store or something like that.

Best regards,

John

John, I guess dairy bars were commonly found in drug stores and such in larger towns and cities. The last time I saw a dairy bar it was the front-end store-front for a small-town dairy. Right here in Shelburne, at the corner of Owen Sound Street and First Avenue. Long since torn down to make way for a new Credit Union...

Back when the local farmers brought their fresh milk and cream to the local dairy daily in milk-cans... when marketing slogans were "Something new for '62.", "Something more for '64.", "Come alive in '65." ....The facade of the building was classic Art Deco. I wish I could find pictures- rounded stucco with big metal decorative piping and Art-Deco back-lit metal logo... interior was total world of terrazzo, chrome and vinyl, swivel stools, Hamilton-Beach milkshake machines, and bottled Coke in a water-filled cooler...

Aww shucks, makes me feel young just thinking about it :)
