CANTALOUPE-LEMON SHAKE

Makes about 3 1/2 cups (28 oz or 850 ml)

INGREDIENTS

– 1/2 medium ripe cantaloupe (about 1 lb or 454 grams), peeled seeded and cut into 1 1/2 inch (4 cm) chunks (about 3 cups)
– 1/4 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
–  3 medium scoops vanilla bean or original vanilla ice cream (about 3/4 pint or 9 ounces or 255 grams), softened until just melty at the edges
– 3 medium scoops lemon sorbet (about 3/4 pint or 9 ounces or 255 grams), softened until just melty at the edges

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS

1. Place the cantaloupe and lemon juice in a blender & blend to break down the canteloupe completely, about 1 minute.

2. Add the ice cream and sorbet and pulse several times to begin breaking them up.

3. With the blender motor off, use a flexible spatula to mash the mixture down onto the blender blades. Continue pulsing, stopping, and mashing until the mixture is well blended, thick, and moves easily in the blended jar, roughly 30 to 90 seconds.

4. Pour into a chilled glass or glasses, and serve at once.

TOASTED OATMEAL & BROWN SUGAR SHAKE

Makes about 3 1/2 cups (28 oz or 850 ml)

INGREDIENTS

– 1 tablespoon unsalted butter (about 1/2 ounce or 15 grams)
– 1/4 cup high-quality rolled oats, preferably thick cut (about 1 ounce or 28 grams)
– 2/3 cups plus 1/2 cup cold whole or low fat milk (about 9 ounces or 275 milliliters total)
– 2/3 cup water (about 5 ounces or 150 milliliters)
– Pinch of salt
– 3 tablespoons light brown sugar (about 1 1/2 ounces or 36 grams)
– Pinch of ground cloves
– 8 medium scoops French vanilla ice cream (about 1 quart or 24 ounces or 680 grams), softened until just melty at the edges

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS

OATS:

1. Melt the butter in a small non-stick saucepan over medium heat until it stops foaming.

2. Add the oats and cook, stirring constantly, until medium golden brown and fragrant, about 6 minutes.

3. Standing back because the mixture will spit and sputter, add 2/3 cup milk, the water, and salt and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the oats are very soft and almost all of the liquid has been absorbed, about 18 minutes.

4. Off the heat, cool the mixture to room temperature, about 20 minutes.

SHAKE: 

1. Place 1/2 cup (5 ounces or 142 grams) of the cooked oats, the remaining 1/2 cup (4 ounces or 125 milliliters) milk, the brown sugar, and cloves in a blender and blend until the oats are completely broken down and incorporated into the milk, about 1 1/2 minutes.

2. Add the ice cream and pulse several times to begin breaking it up.

3. With the blender motor off, use a flexible spatula to mash the mixture down onto the blender blades. Continue pulsing, stopping, and mashing until the mixture is well blended, thick, and moves easily in the blender jar, roughly 30 to 90 seconds.

4. Pour into a chilled glass or glasses, and serve at once.
