Red Velvet Oreo Cookie Milk Shake

Red Velvet Oreo Cookie Milk Shake
We’re another year older USA…. time to shake, rattle and roll!

I’ve got a frosty, crunchy,Red Velvet Oreo Cookie Milk Shake for you today,  surely worthy of a great celebration….

but first, along with Uncle Sam, look who’s had a birthday.  Our little Sam just turned one!  He’s red, white and in blue, all-American through and through.  We tried a photo shoot outside, but the sun was too bright.  He sure was happy though,  such a love.

For the holiday, we found a pretty place at Lucky Peak Reservoir to ride our pair of Sea-doos.  We’ve had a ton of fun. We spent Friday and Saturday camping, headed home for Sunday and we’ll return to the water this afternoon after a flag-raising ceremony, bike parade and pancake breakfast at our church with wonderful friends, neighbors and our family.  

Red Velvet Oreo Cookies Milk Shake

After a day in the sun, we all scream for ice cream.  Nothing beats an All-American thick, yummy milkshake around our place.  Grab the sparklers, cause this shake is right up there with bright blasting fireworks!  Red Velvet Oreo Cookies Milk Shake evolved quickly.

My plan was to make a Red Velvet Shake, smooth and rich.  Then grands, (starving and clustered round my vitamix blender), were begging that I throw a few crunchy Oreo Cookies in. Grandma’s a soft touch.  Low and behold it worked!

Here’s the skinny…

    OK, you’re probably not going to see this, but what’s the trick with the vinegar? Maybe I should google it. I have never heard of putting it in a milkshake.

    And can I say yet again what a beautiful family you have? Birthday Boy Sam is just adorable!

    Vinegar?! In a milkshake?! I am going to have to try that… It looks delicious! I’m a huge fan of red velvet cake, bookmarking this post for the future.

    Happy 1st birthday to Sam, what a cutie!! My Ben turned 1 about a month ago, it’s such a fun age isn’t it?

    Found your shake via Be Different, Act Normal. Looks like everyone else has been asking you the same question, lol, but I’m hosting a Summer Drink Week Link Party today over at my blog and I’d love it if you linked it up! Have a great weekend.

    Oh! That sounds interestging. We will have to give it a try!

    Surprisingly, vinegar helps give red velvet it’s unique flavor…try it! Thanks for all your comments.
