A thick and creamy milkshake that tastes exactly like the beloved Girl Scout Cookie. This Samoa Cookie Milkshake is a winning flavor combination.
You have no idea how frustrating it is to use a blender that doesn’t actually blend. Maybe you do, but I pray you do not. It had one job, and it couldn’t even do that. Trying to blend ice or frozen fruit? The smoking motor and cut off said it wasn’t having any of that. This thing struggled to even blend up soup. Soup! It’s liquid for goodness’ sake.
That thing had to go and I had no qualms about throwing it in the trash after our tenuous 5 year relationship. Fortunately, I’ve since been introduced and have entered into a successful long term relationship with a new blender that has a much better work ethic.
The firing and hiring couldn’t have come at a better time either because if you live under a rock or in a hermit cave, or possibly in another country, and weren’t aware– Girl Scout Cookies are here!! You can keep your Super Bowl, your March Madness… this is my season ya’ll.
I grew up with a powerful love of Thin Mint’s that was nurtured by both my Mom and Grandma. Then the hubs introduced me to Samoa’s while we were dating. I was sold at first bite and Thin Mints took a back seat to my new favorite. Now ever year I’m all too happy to see those adorable little uniformed Daisy’s & Brownie’s outside the super market hocking their amazingly addictive boxes of sugared cookies. I happily hand over the cash for a box or two, or ten and I’m not even going to pretend I actually share them.
I mean I do, once I decide what yummy new treat to turn them into or serve them up with, but I also don’t feel bad about the two boxes I always hide at the bottom of the deep freezer. They’re perfect for those times when I need a special little pick me up and nobody ever finds them because nobody will dig through the freezer for anything unless forced.
If you too love a good girl scout cookie then brace yourself…
