Salted Caramel Milkshake goodness...

I must admit I'm not a massive milkshake fan. Mr Lee loves them. If it's an option on a menu, he'll take it in a heart beat, doesn't matter if it's for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Actually come to think of it, almost every boy I know loves milk in any form...What is it with boys and milk?
There's always the classic flavours; chocolate, caramel, banana and strawberry. But to entice me to want one I love seeing the sight of unusual and more-ish flavours.
A few months ago we tried to get a lunch spot at Reuben Hills here in Sydney, but there was no dice...the wait for a table of 6 on a Sunday was at least an hour! Even though we found another lunch spot, I couldn't help myself, and once lunch finished, I had to go back to Reuben Hills and try their salted caramel milkshake.

I die for anything salted caramel. Having that flavour in this milkshake, really did hit the spot. Surely this is easy to replicate at home right?

Mine doesn't quite taste the same as Reuben Hill's, but I still love it...I'm licking the spoon that spooned out the caramel sauce, as I type. So easy, so quick, TRY ... THIS...NOW!

Salted caramel milkshakes

Whiz the following with a stick blender:

  • 3 dessert spoonfuls of salted caramel sauce*
  • 1/2 cup milk (light/whole/whatever you like)
  • 2-3 scoops of vanilla ice-cream

Rim a glass (or bottle) with a good helping of the salted caramel sauce by tipping your glass horizontally, place small spoonfuls of sauce at the edge of the glass, tip the glass back upright and rotate it in your hand until the goopy gloriousness smothers around the glass the way you like it. Pour in your blended milkshake mixture ...and BOOM!

*Salted caramel sauce recipe I used was from the lovely Nigella Lawson.

If so, I got these from a store called "House 2 Home" but actually you can purchase similar clear ones here http://sweetteapartysupplies.com.au/p-category/milk-bottles-glasswares/milk-bottles, the ceramic ones are the same shape, but they are quite pricey , hope this helps! :)
