Cherry Lambic Beer Milkshakes

I bought these cherries with the intention of making a Cherry Garcia inspired milkshake, with chunks of fresh sweet cherries and flecks of chocolate chips. But Taylor was eying my cherries, determined to get in on the #MilkshakeWeek action, and even joked that he was going to hack the blog and post his own milkshake...

The Michelangelo (A Milkshake Masterpiece)

This milkshake, and its name, was inspired by a uniquely memorable cup of gelato I had in Italy back in 2011.

Remember way back when I shared that awesome Toasted Marshmallow Ice Cream? And I said I had ‘grand plans’ for it? Well, it may have taken me a bit longer than anticipated to realize those plans, but I think the result is worth the wait. Initially inspired by Mallomar cookies, but sort of a s’more...
