Sweet & Saucy Frosty Blitz

I've launched a little food-related project in conjunction with the folks at Fooducopia, a site where small food producers sell their products. My part in this is that I'll be creating recipes specifically for products sold on the Fooducopia site. This is one of those recipes.

You know how it is – you open a few jars of Sweet & Saucy products to drizzle over ice cream or garnish a pie – and then you’ve got leftovers. The ice cream is gone, the pie is gone, and you’re ready to dive into the jar with a spoon.

But then you think that maybe there’s something a little more creative you could do with the sauce. But you don’t want to buy more ice cream …

It’s pretty easy to whip up a shake or smoothie using almost any flavor of Sweet & Saucy that you might have on hand. This time I used Frank’s Whiskey Caramel.

The beauty of a recipe like this is that you can start with the basics and add whatever you like. Have a banana that needs to be used? Toss that in! One last scoop of ice cream? Use it up! Want a thicker drink? Add more ice! Want to feel virtuous? Add some flax meal! Need to use up the last bits of heavy cream (and not feel virtuous)? In it goes! One miserable teaspoon of peanut butter left? Add that! Other fruit? Go for it!

The easiest way to measure the ingredients is to start with a 2-cup measuring cup, add the milk first, then add the remaining ingredients and watch the liquid level rise. If you add a little too much of something, it doesn’t matter. It’s not a precise formula.

1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup Greek-style yogurt
1/4 cup Sweet & Saucy Frank’s Whiskey Caramel
1/4 cup ice cubes
Optional add-ins

Toss all the ingredients into the blender and blitz until the mixture is smooth and the ice is destroyed. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream, if you like.

To be clear, I'm not reviewing or endorsing the products in this recipe. I've created the recipe for Fooducopia to post its site and I'm re-posting the recipe here for my readers as well. Then again, since I created the recipe, rest assured that I liked it. I don't cook stuff that we're not going to eat.
