Gingerbread Milkshake


This is my second milkshake of the week.  Well, you must be wondering why all these frozen treats in the middle of  all the Christmas festivities.  We had a small wave of heat in our area and had 70+ degree days... so the cool treats with a fun Christmas theme worked out perfectly.  Of course if you have freezing cold weather where you live, just snuggle up under a blanket and enjoy this frozen treat too. :)

3 cups vanilla ice cream
1-2 tsp ground ginger powder (depending how strong you want the ginger flavor)
1/2-1 tsp ground cinnamon
2-3 gingersnap cookies (more for garnish)
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups milk (use less milk if you want it very thick)
1 Tbs molasses

Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth (use the lower range of ginger and cinnamon spices to start).  Taste and adjust spices as needed.   Serve in a glass with straw or a spoon.  Garnish with more ginger snaps (whole or crumbled).  Serves 2-3.  Enjoy
