In June I was very lucky to win a Vitamin Blender and I am sure I will be sharing recipes here on the blog including this Snickers Milkshake which you could also make using another blender of course but maybe use a high powered blender if possible.
Anyway I’ve had this mean machine for about 12 hours and I’ve made 4 different things.
First up I tried the vanilla ice cream from the Vitamix recipe book that came with it. Ice cream in a few minutes using just milk, sugar,vanilla and ice cubes. Yes please. It was really nice – I messed up the first batch as forgot to add sugar..it’s been a rather difficult day. Second batch was gooooood.
Then later on this eve I had an idea to make Snickers milkshake .. I first had a Snickers milkshake at Blissfields festival in 2011 where a really cool food/drinks stall made them using Vitamix style machines. I tried to recreate this myself last year using my Kenwood smoothie maker and well it wasn’t great but I had a feeling this machine was up to the job so here is the recipe.. Super simple as are all my recipes:
1.5 cups of milk – I used full fat
1 Snickers quartered
1 cup of ice cubes
Place all ingredients in the Vmix and turn on variable 1-10 before turning to high for approximately 60-90 seconds until smooth. Et voila. It tasted exactly like the ones I’d had at the festival. So good.
I’ve also made a zingy lime smoothie and some incredible hot chocolate which I promise to share tomorrow but for now I need my bed.
