So I tried a trick my mom used to do, I made a cool treat mid-afternoon to sweeten everybody up and cool everybody down!
Today’s treat was Homemade Chocolate Shakes.
I pulled out the blender and threw in a few scoops of ice cream, poured in a little milk and some chocolate ice cream syrup.
If it looked too thick, I would add more milk.
If it looked to thin, I would add more ice cream.
If it looked just right I poured it into a cup with a dollop of whipped cream on top.
Served with a spoon and a straw, this was one treat that soothed the savage beasts (oops…I mean my hot and tired children!)
And yes, Mom enjoyed it, too!
