Don't just blame me, though - mum does it too! See, vanilla ice cream is often on sale, and when vanilla ice cream is on sale, mum buys it, whether we like it or not. And nobody in my family really likes vanilla ice cream. (That's really the biggest difference between my parents economically. Mum saves money buying things on sale, and dad saves money not buying anything at all. Go figure.)
|Chocolate Milkshake |
100 g. (3.5 oz) good-quality dark chocolate, roughly chopped
300 ml. (10½ fl. oz.) whole milk
6 large vanilla ice cream scoops *
1.Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water (do not allow the base of the bowl to touch the water).
2.In a blender, mix the melted chocolate with the milk. Add the ice cream, and blend together. Feel free to add more vanilla ice cream scoops, to match your taste.
*I like a strong chocolate flavour, but I always add an extra scoop or two for my mum, who prefers a more subtle chocolate taste.
