Gingerbread Milkshake (Throwback Thursday)


It's only one week until Christmas... I am so excited!  Wait... I think I'm a little terrified too.  I just realized I have some more presents to buy, wrap and food to make.   Well, I think I need a little treat to get me through all this hustle and bustle of the season.
My kids and husband love ice cream and milkshakes.  We could be in the middle of a blizzard and if there is a carton of ice cream in the house it will be eaten.  So making a holiday inspired milkshake is not that crazy for my family.   This Throwback Thursday I bring you the Gingerbread Milkshake. 
It really is easy and definitely fun to drink.  So if it's too cold for you to sip a frozen treat, turn up the heat and enjoy!

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
