I am a calendar watching, list making fool. I have a crazy detailed planner that is bigger than some of my college text books and it is organized by color coded post it notes. I have a huge wall calendar that holds everything that has to be done. And a four foot chalk board that has been the center of my eBook planning (yes! there is an eBook coming in October!) I have purposely made myself NOT order a label maker because if I took this little obsession any further my husband might leave me.
Need something organized? I’m your girl.
Last week I was looking at the calendar for all the things I needed to get done (in the middle of August) and it said “Pumpkin – explore sweet and savory options” and “Thanksgiving Sides: begin testing 8/15”
I stood staring wide eyed at the words I had written and I thought what the heck am I doing?! It is August! IT IS AUGUST! I don’t want to make sweet potato casserole! I don’t want to start thinking about what I’m going to tell you to serve your turkey with three months from now! I just can’t do it!
So I did what any person in my shoes would do. I got out the ice cream. 🙂
In honor of celebrating all the 8th month of the year has to offer I am proposing we just hang on a second. Don’t break out the cinnamon and the caramel apples just yet, don’t worry about mums or pumpkins and definitely definitely steer clear of the Christmas display at Hobby Lobby. Instead, make a Salted Caramel Toasted Coconut Shake and go enjoy the sunshine!
This shake has all of my favorite flavors, salted caramel, toasted coconut (YUM!) a bit of vanilla and instead of just using milk I used Almond Breeze Almondmilk Coconutmilk Vanilla Unsweetened, which has become my new obsession. I am kind of obsessed with coconut so I love using this in smoothies, oatmeal and of course, milk shakes like this!
- 2 cups of vanilla ice cream, or frozen fat free cool whip for a lighter version
- 2 cups ice
- 1 cup Almond Breeze Almondmilk Coconutmilk Vanilla Unsweetened
- 1/2 cup toasted coconut
- 2 tablespoons caramel sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 pinch of sea salt
- Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until completely smooth and ice is crushed.
- Pour into two glasses, top with whipped cream and additional toasted coconut and caramel sauce if desired.
