Day 108 : Fresh Strawberry Cloud Milkshake

This one is a little something for my son.  I already had a mocha today so I needed to NOT make some high calorie recipe for myself lol.  Yesterday Perrin requested a strawberry shake and I told him I would make one today so that is what I did.  I was getting ready to make the shake when I saw the jar of marshmallow creme sitting on the counter and a lightbulb went off in my head…. why not put that in the shake?!

I wasn’t sure how it was going to work out, or if I had the right amount, but it was AWESOME!  I did try it…. just didn’t have a full glass.  I can’t very well rate a recipe afterall without trying it.  Anyway the strawberry flavor was just how I like it, present but not overpoweringly sweet (since it was fresh strawberries) and I really enjoyed the marshmallow flavor and especially the times when a little of it didn’t mix in all the way and you got a small pocket of the marshmallow creme.  Sort of like a swirl effect in spots.  It was the perfect thick consistency too.

I have lots of plans to incorporating marshmallow creme into other drinks now lol.  Oh and Perrin helped me name the drink.
