National Milk Day

When I think of milk, two things come to mind: cereal and milkshakes! Since milkshakes are way more fun, that’s what I picked. Plus I wouldn’t really know what to know with cereal other than eat a bowl with milk. Like many of you, I’ve seen pictures and videos online of freakshakes, the amazing milkshakes stacked high with cookies, candies, and even slices of cake. While mine don’t look as spectacular as those, they did look good enough to eat! Personally, if I’m going to indulge in some ice cream, I’m going to pick a flavor with chunks of other desserts in it. That’s why I chose a cookie dough milkshake with extra cookie dough and a cookie for garnish.

The original recipe tells you how to make cookie dough that’s ok to eat without baking. I felt a little lazy today, so I just used the pre-made squares that you can just stick in the oven. You’re not technically supposed to eat the dough without cooking, but I’m not afraid enough of salmonella to not do it (which is probably a bad thing). So take your pick of making your own from the recipe or just buying pre-made, but be aware of the health risk.
