Chocolate Covered Strawberry Milkshake

I love to surprise the kids with a treat after school.  Since I knew Evan would come home from school hot and exhausted because today was his field day and it was 90 degrees outside I thought he deserved a milkshake.  We picked berries a few days ago at Wegmeyer Farms and stuck some in the freezer for occasions just like this.  The frozen strawberries make the milkshake nice and cold.  

Ingredients:
  • Strawberries 
  • Cocoa Powder
  • Hershey's Syrup
  • Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Whipped Cream
I used my Nutribullet, I know that making milkshakes is not its intended purpose but it is easy to use and easy to clean, not to mention just the right size to make a couple of milkshakes for the kiddos.  
I cut the stems off the strawberries and filled the small cup about 2/3 of the way, added 3 scoops of vanilla ice cream, a teaspoon of Hershey's Cocoa Powder and blended until smooth.  I drizzled a little Hershey's Syrup in the glass, poured in the milkshake and added a dollop of whipped cream.  I did convince them to share a little bit with me!!  I am one lucky mom!
