Dessert Recipes Tasty Treats To Sip On

Pink Milkshakes


Since day one, milkshakes have always brought about happy, carefree occasions for me. They remind me of my brother, my dad (who don’t have my sweet tooth, but would never turn down a milkshake) and warm summer days – three things that cannot be topped, really. Up until now, my home-made milkshakes have consisted of a scoop of vanilla ice cream (chocolate chip, when I’m feeling fancy), a splash of milk and a squirt of chocolate sauce. While there’s no need to mess with a classic combination (one my dad has been making for me for years and years now), I think it’s time I try kicking them up a notch just for fun – an adult milkshake, if you will.  When I found this recipe on Joy’s blog not long ago, I knew it would be the perfect contender. The combination of rhubarb purée and a real vanilla bean transforms this childhood dessert into a special treat and I can’t wait to make them on the regular come the warmer months.

    I always have a soft spot for rustic little things like milk jugs and other similar glassware. They are so cute looking and make everything you put in them that much more fun to drink or mix or whatever you happen to be using them for at the time.

    The milkshake looks delicious, what a way to welcome this warm Toronto weather!

      I tend to agree! I wish I had more cupboard space to house cute jars and dishes – they make food taste just that much better!

    I wish I’d seen this before my mother’s summer rhubarb stocks had dried up!
