Fake shake


1.Blend all at low speed about 10 seconds. Using the partially frozen liquid will produce a much colder, thicker shake.


  • Chocolate: Use 2 tbsp. chocolate syrup in place of butterscotch. (Commercial chocolate syrups are often made without milk or lactose; always read the ingredient labels).
  • Butterscotch-Banana: Add ½ well ripened, sliced banana to ingredients for butterscotch shake.
  • Peanut Butter-Honey: Omit butterscotch sauce. Mix together in a cup: ¼ cup soy milk or nondairy creamer, 2 tbsp. smooth peanut butter, 1 tbsp. honey, and ¼ tsp. vanilla. Place partially frozen liquid in blender, then add peanut butter mixture. Blend for about 10 seconds or until smooth.
