Strawberry Milkshake #SundaySupper #JuneDairyMonth
June is National Dairy Month and my Sunday Supper family has joined forces with Florida Milk
Do you know how important milk is to our diets? Milk contains 9 essential nutrients and vitamins: protein, vitamins A, D, and B12, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, riboflavin, niacin, zinc and magnesium. Drinking three cups of milk a day will fulfill your recommended daily allowance for dairy. Good thing that this Strawberry Milkshake recipe contains 1-1/3 cups milk. You are well on your way.
Most of the dairy cows living in Florida are the black and white Holsteins. The dairy herds range in size from 150 cows to 5,000 cows. Each Florida dairy cow produces about 6-8 gallons of milk each day and is milked 2-3 times per day.
It did not take me long to figure out what recipe I wanted to share with you today. As we are getting into hotter temperatures I find myself longing for icy cold milkshakes. I incorporated vanilla and strawberry ice cream into the shake and froze strawberries to use as ‘ice cubes’. Of course, Florida Milk is what brought the Strawberry Milkshake together.
I chose not to add additional sugar to our milkshakes as the ice cream has plenty of sugar but if you want your Strawberry Milkshake a tad sweeter, I recommend adding agave or a simple syrup.
|Strawberry Milkshake #SundaySupper #JuneDairyMonth
- 1 quart strawberries
- 2 scoops strawberry ice cream
- 2 scoops vanilla ice cream
- 1-1/3 cups (11.35 ounces) Florida milk
- Wash and dry the strawberries. Cut off the stems. Place four berries on a paper towel and place in the refrigerator until needed. Transfer the remaining strawberries to a paper towel lined baking sheet. Freeze until solid. This may be done in advance.
- Place the strawberries, strawberry ice cream, vanilla ice cream and Florida milk into a blender. Process until smooth.
- Pour Strawberry Milkshakes into individual glasses and decorate with a strawberry.
Frozen strawberries may be used instead of freezing your own.
Florida dairy farmers take their responsibility to our land seriously. They recycle about 170,000 tons of byproducts such as citrus pulp, brewers’ grain and whole cottonseed that are consumed by the cows instead of ending up in landfills.
