"These are good - the syrup does take a bit of time and work, but it can be made one week ahead and stored in the fridge. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (June 2007). Left over syrup can be used for just drizzling over ice cream or other things like pancakes and pound cake - a delicious treat all on its own."

TO MAKE THE SYRUP


Step 1

Bring ingredients (strawberries - salt) to a boil in a saucepan over medium high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves and then boil uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring and adjusting heat if necessary to avoid mixture boiling over. Add 2 tablespoons lemon juice; strain, pressing on the solids. Cover and chill.

TO MAKE THE MILK SHAKES


Step 2

Place 4 12 ounce glasses in freezer for one hour.

Step 3

In a blender place 1 cup strawberry syrup, 1 cup milk and one pint ice cream and puree until smooth. Add the second pint of ice cream and puree until almost smooth. Divide mixture among the 4 frozen glasses. Drizzle each with some strawberry syrup and garnish with strawberries, if desired. Serve with a spoon and straw.

Ellie, what a delicious milk shakes we had today thanks to you. I didn't use the suggested strawberry ice cream but rather used part coconut and part vanilla. It came in so handy as it was another hot one today. I love recipes like this because they're so much fun to make. Thank you ellie for sharing!
