Sometimes my decorating
obsession can extend to edible items, and I simply love trying to make a meal or a yummy treat look pretty. I find that the colours of different foods can add to the decor on a table, or bring a much needed pop of colour. The food can often times be the cherry on top of the decor… pardon the pun. Lol.
Since my kids are feeling kind of bummed about summer being almost over, I decided to make my girls a fun after dinner treat, which we ended up calling a milkshake party; and it was positively delightful. To make the “milkshake party” more fancy, I added a picnic inspired tablecloth, with some coordinating straws and napkins.
Each daughter wanted a different flavour of milkshake, and since I had most of the items on hand, it was easy and fun to whip up different types. I used mason jars for the milkshakes because they are so darn cute; and who doesn’t love a mason jar?
For the milk, I used a healthy almond milk as an alternative… but shhhh. Don’t tell the kids that…. 😉
For the Birthday Cake Milkshake, I added vanilla ice cream and almond milk; and then topped it off with whip cream and purple sprinkles.
The next milkshake was inspired by yummy s’mores. Ingredients were vanilla ice cream, almond milk, topped with whip cream, chocolate sauce, a
slightly overdone marshmallow and a graham cracker. Yum!!!
Last but not least comes a favourite in our household. The chocolate banana monkey. Ingredients are chocolate ice cream, a banana, and chocolate milk; topped with whip cream, chocolate sauce and a banana slice.
The milkshake party was a great success, and because all the main ingredients were so similar, making different varieties of milkshakes was a breeze.
That’s it for today’s post. I’ll see you all again on Monday, where I post pics of the completed room for my oldest daugther for the #30dayflip challenge. The August challenge is to refresh a room (or part of a room), and I can’t wait to show you the before and after photos of her room. I still have a few tweaks to do, so I’d better get to work. Lol. See you then 🙂
