Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Milkshake

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Milkshake Thanks to my good friend Anita over at the Hungry Couple, last Tuesday evening I had the pleasure of attending a private event at my most favorite chocolate shop in NYC – Jacques Torres. The event was also co-hosted by Driscoll’s strawberries and we had the pleasure of not only tasting a delicious strawberry shortcake prepared by Driscoll’s but samples of Jacques Torres’ new ice cream line.

It was a great way to end my workday, I finally got to meet Anita in person – we had been trying to arrange a meeting for over year and Mr. Chocolate himself! Driscoll’s was kind enough to send us home with a little goodie bag at the end of the event, to my pleasant surprise it included a pint of the strawberry ice cream to seen above.  Even though I had sampled it earlier in the day it was hard not to resist digging in at home with hubby!  After a few spoonfuls though we both stopped and I forbid him from digging in more, for you see I had plans with my ice cream.

Lucky me was getting our first CSA share of the season this past Saturday and our fruit share included strawberries and rhubarb. It was kismet that I had this delicious batch of strawberry ice cream at home, because a milkshake needed to be made from all my fresh ingredients! Now the “pie” part isn’t actual pie crust, I cheated and crumbled some shortbread cookies on top, but I love the added texture it gives to the milkshake.  

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Milkshake The best part? Besides an ultra thick milkshake to enjoy on a hot summers eve? Leftover compote to top on some toast, yogurt or pancakes!
