Fred,

Only suggestion I have for milkshake making is:

1. Find a well-endowed lass, who has just given birth.
2. Get her to run and jump. When she stands still?
3. Instant milkshake - and a new vice

That's a very fattening vice you're taking up! I rarely have a milkshake because they're caloric disasters, but I love them. Milk and ice cream are the basic ingredients and you can let your imagination run wild from there. My first job was working at a soda fountain in a drugstore and we made milk shakes the old fashioned way - scooping out ice cream by hand, adding the milk and using a special mixer. I always used to come home spattered with milkshake - but boy were they good. Chocolate was my favorite - made with chocolate ice cream AND chocolate syrup.

A less fattening alternative for the weight conscious:

Get frozen fruit (either buy the frozen, unsweetened strawberries, peaches, etc. or just cut up fresh fruit and put it in a plastic bag in the freezer.). Put some in the blender, add nonfat yogurt and sugar or low cal sweetener. Blend it till the fruit is pulverized. The more fruit you put in relation to the yogurt the thicker the consistency will be. Bananas work really well. You can also do this with tofu - substitute it for the yogurt and if it's too thick you can add a little water. It isn't as good as a milkshake but it substitutes pretty well.

I spent last week at my favorite shore town - Ocean Grove, NJ. It is a wonderful old town that was built as a center for Revival and camp meetings in the late 1800's. The town has great Victorian houses (more per capita than any other city in the country) and an incredible building called The Great Auditorium. The town maintains it's revival roots and charm. My main love of this town is the fact that there are no touristy boardwalks and it caters to families.   It puts other shore towns to shame in my estimation.

In the center of town is a great ice cream shop called Nagles. This shop was originally a pharmacy with an ice cream fountain and it has been in operation since the 1920's.   Every year we go there and I gourge myself with chocolate malts.   I swear they make the best in the world because their ice cream is so special.

Well, the secret is out. My wife discovered that they use Welsh's Farm ice cream, which turns out to be my favorite home brand as well. As Marge Simpson would say, they add a secret ingredient - Love.

Anyway, here is a great recipe

4 scoops of Welsh's farms CHOCOLATE ice cream (you can substitute Welsh's vanilla if you aren't a choclate freak)
3 tablespoons of malt - I use Carnations. Use their chocolate malt for the most chocolate punch
3/4 cup of milk(use skim if you are watching your weight - but if you are watching your weight, why are you looking for an milkshake recipe???)
and - 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

Put it in a blender and go to town. Supposedly it serves two, but I've never found out if that is true.

You want the best ever chocolate tasting chocolate milkshake? Use Green and Blacks Organic Chocolate chip icecream. It's so chocolatey that not even I can manage a whole tub in one sitting....

And don't think I haven't tried!

Milkshakes are the ticket, never did like malts...too gacky. The one thing that sets a choc. shake above all others is coffee. Either coffe ice cream, or coffee...very strong coffee...as the liquid. A healthy dash of vanilla extract, the real thing, doesn't hurt either. And if you're into whipped cream on top, a dusting of nutmeg is not amiss.

Or....one can go the more interesting, alcoholic route, i.e. a brandy Alexandar: coffee ice cream (or if you are a purist, choc. ice cream, better the brand, better the drink), kalua or creme de cacao, and brandy with enough ice added, if necessary, to keep it thick. Granted, one might not want to go whole hog and fill a 16 oz. glass with this concoction...but on the other hand...one might.

My personal fav. is a grasshopper...again an alcoholic shake, made of mint ice cream, creme de menthe and brandy, a bit of ice, whizzed up in a blender...great dessert drink.

use malt for a sweet treat.
bananas are best if peeled
before freezing.
smoothies using fruit juice
and yogurt are good with
frozen bananas or other
fruit, and for healthy
addition sprinkle in some food yeast.
(not brewers yeast that stuff is gacky.)
then yo might need one of those straw
gadgets witha spoon on the end like
you get at fat food places that make
shakes and malts. are they called
stroons? spraws? (they certainly
would not call them spaws) to scoop
out the thick delicious goody!

Ice cream -- a good brand, your choice of flavor but I suggest using the same flavor as your shake (e.g., strawberry for a strawberry shake).

The flavor(s) -- GOOD chocolate syrup (not Hersheys, which is chocolate flavored and contains no chocolate -- read the label), fresh fruit, etc.

Half-and-half, cream, or heavy cream, depending upon your level of decadence.

A tinge of real vanilla extract, a slug of your favorite liquor, etc. (optional and to your taste).

Put it all in a blender and blenderize it.



I never said it was low-fat, or healthy, or anything, but it IS good.

"Frappe" is, I think, a term from the effete Easterners. Back when I was growing up in the Midwest, we called 'em milkshakes. To make one, you first fed a cow the flavor you wanted (garlic is good) and the got her really, really cold. Wearing gloves (it's udderly awful to get your fingers frozen to the cow), you milked her into your milkshake glass. Since the stuff was so thick this was difficult, and the difficulty was compounded by the shivering of the cow, the moving "faucets," and often by an irate dairy farmer.

Way into the Effete East, in Massachu...Masa...Far Southern Vermont, my wife says they were called "Awful-Awfuls" at the friendly local Friendly's.

I guess I'm showing my age - but remember when we first got a local Friendly's and then later a McDonalds - we were astonished that their 'milkshakes' were actually frappes.

In Massachusetts, "milkshakes contain no ice cream; if you want ice-cream added, you order a "frappe." The drink made with milk, ice cream, and syrup was called a "cabinet" in Rhode Island, and was called a "frosted" in Connecticut, where I grew up. The rest of the country called them "milkshakes" or perhaps "malts," though a malted milk required the addition of malt when I grew up. These regional distinctions have probbaly become homogenized as milk in the new era where nobody is from anywhere in particular.

If you can get it, add "Star Kay White's Pure Chocolate Extract" ... "A unique, natural chocolate extract created from a special blend of fresh roasted cocoa beans using a process and formula developed over a century ago". It's killer chocolate flavouring -like good vanilla essence, but chocolagte - which I get over here from Lakeland Plastics. A quick whiff of it is chocoholic heaven ...

My dad always added a raw egg. Of course, that was in the days before most eggs were infected with Salmonella, courtesy of your favorite agribusiness conglomerate.

Mmario, you probably think that those flavored carbonated drinks like Coca-Cola and 7Up are called "tonic," when we all know they're called "soda." Except those in the Midwest and West, who say "pop"--but what do they know?

Look Mark, they can't be "tonics" as the liquid ingredient for many years was known as "soda water." So a tonic is a tonic water and "Pop" is actually short for "Soda Pop" which makes sense since we all know a "Soda" is really an Egg Creme with a couple of scoops of ice cream in it. Now if I could just figure out why there are no eggs in an Egg Creme, all would be right with the world.

Well, 'Spaw, that's not bad for an Ohioan. But an eggcream is composed of seltzer, milk, and U-Bet chocolate syrup. (At least, that's what this Philadelphia boy learned from a New Yorker--ain't no eggcreams in Philly, but we do know how to spell 'em). One eggcream recipe.

And "soda" is Coke, ginger ale, 7-Up, Frank's Black Cherry Wishniak, Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray, whatever. When you put a scoop of ice cream in a tall tapered glass partly filled with soda, you get an "ice cream soda." The classic "black and white" is chocolate flavored soda and vanilla ice cream. I always preferred a "white and black": vanilla cream soda (in Philly we had Frank's, in NY they had Dr. Brown's) with chocolate ice cream.

And as Mmario will tell you, people in Masach Massichusset Boston use the word "tonic" for what we more enlightened folks call "soda" and you Midwesterners call "pop"--not just for tonic water.

Mark

It's worse than GBS thought......We are one "nation" separated by a common language!

Interesting history on the aig kreem......Never knew that at one point they really did have eggs in them.

Now my personal favorite fountain drink (outside of a chocolate Coke) is a Coke float. Go heavy on the ice cream and mash it into the Coke really well instead of eating it.....Gives you thie great tasting carbonated milkshake like thing. Also great with Root Beer of course and with Dr. Pepper is outright orgasmic!!!

Dr. Pepper and ice cream?   Ugggh!   Dr.Pepper may be good for removing paint, but as a base for an ice cream soda - please!!   Root Beer has the right properties for an ice cream soda - nice mellow base that blends well with the creamy ice cream. Coca Cola can be good, but it can be harsh and it clashes.

It is also impossible to get a proper egg cream outside of the NYC area. Egg Creams were born and raised in Brooklyn and they don't travel well!

My theory is if you don't know about the calories, they have nothing to hang on to and don't add up. Kind of like if you drive fast enough under a bridge it won't notice you don't have clearance.

MMario you're a pedant, guy. With root beer coming up again, now there's the whole "float" "black cow" thing to settle. As far as I know the black cow is just mixed as opposed to the float.

This vice has a lot of potential, but it's beginning to seem complicated. I'm thinking I should have a simpler one to fall back on.

See, MMario, in the South, everything's a Coke. I used to call everything a Coke until one day I realized that was kind of silly. So then I started calling it soda, and then people accused me of not being Southern. (the nerve! I like my cornbread sweet too.) So now I just say "cold drink." As in, "sugar, would you like a cold drink?"

I worked in ice cream for years and the standard milkshake was 2 scoops ice cream, 2 squirts syrup, and milk. Bananas have the odd effect of making a milkshake watery.

One of my favorite ice cream treats, though, is the Orange Julius. I make a bastardized version of it at home by putting a scoop and a half of vanilla ice cream (Breyer's vanilla bean is best) in a highball glass, and covering it with orange juice. Pineapple juice is good too. Don't knock it till you try it.

Giok

this is the only comment I have been able to find on 'cabinet'

It is thought to be called a "cabinet" because its unknown originator kept his blender in a kitchen cabinet. Also mixers were often stored in square wooden cabinets.

I wonder though - given that Rhode Island has had at time heavy influxes of Cape Verdeans and Portuguese whether it might be a loan-word corrupted out of recognition?

Speaking of opposites, the best drink on a cold day (winter is coming, damn it) is the Italian specialty, amaretto and hot milk. Of course it helps if you have Siena wrapped around it, but it works everywhere pretty well.

Peter T.

What goes into a real Orange Julius? It's been years since I had one and now I want one.

I thought they made them with vanilla soft-serve... which is probably made of powdered egg whites. ;-)

Anyhow try the vanilla ice cream & orange juice thing. You can also frappe that in a blender and it tastes like one of those Dreamsicle things.

Amaretto and hot milk..... gosh that sounds good...

I like the ice cream idea better than the powdered egg white. Think I'll try that one.

I read their website and while they don't mention egg white, I wouldn't be surprised if it is included in their proprietary "smoother". I would guess they would have to make mention of eggs since some people are either allergic or do not include them in their diet.

Liz...your blender, or mine?

re cabinet: in both Sp. and Fr. it also means taxi...maybe only cabbies, at one time, knew where these things were made...Psssst, hey, buddy...you like egg in your milkshake?

Amos: no, not related to water closet...and don't call me surely!

Best cooler on a hot summer day...a rootbeer freeze from Foster's!

I read somewhere about a milkshake recipe that involved milk, ice cream, and instant Jell-O pudding, but I don't recall the proportions (might help with the fat content, though).

I'm lazy--I just go to Denny's.

I thought the ones with eggs were "egg creams" but I'm not from that part of the country so I'm probably wrong.

An Orange Julius has malt in it. That's why they call it Julius. (I haven't seen the website, but if they don't mention malt, then they're lying, to protect their trade secret.) I believe the first Orange Julius I ever had was in Greenwich Village. And Ron, I did have an eggcream in Philly...but it was made for me in 1963 by my friend Andy Rosen, who grew up in Brooklyn (and was therefore an L.A. Dodger fan).

Aloha,
Mark

Mark:

I am missing something....the word Julius, in my mind, has no association with malt except for the one you just proposed. Whence therefore the proposition that is "why they call it Julius"??
