TIP OF THE DAY: Seasonal Milkshake Dessert

‘Tis the season to take advantage of limited-edition ice cream flavors: candy cane/peppermint, cinnamon, eggnog and pumpkin.

For a crowd-pleasing dessert, serve a small piece of pumpkin/apple/other seasonal favorite pie or cake with a small “side” milkshake (4-6 ounces) in a holiday flavor. If you’d like something lighter, substitute biscotti or cookies. Think of it as the “bake and shake” equivalent of “surf and turf.”

To make the shake, just blend 1 cup of ice cream with 1/2 cup milk (or 1 pint of ice cream and 1 cup of milk).

Depending on the flavor, you can add chocolate or caramel syrup; and can garnish the milkshake with chocolate shavings (candy cane milkshake), ground cinnamon and/or nutmeg (for cinnamon, eggnog and pumpkin milkshakes).

To get chocolate or caramel markings as shown in the photo, use a bristle paint brush or a thin squeeze bottle.
