An Illusory Intertwingling of Reason and Response

Miscellany: I just like the sound of the word. Don’t you? “Mis cel lan e ous.” I could say it a thousand times a day. The miscellany is where anything in life worth having usually spends most of its time: would you like to hunt for something worthwhile among my miscellany?

Strawberry Frappe

Had this for "dessert" tonight. However, it would make a great beverage near the end of a meal, I think. I didn't sweeten it, so it wasn't "dessert-y," really. It was still wonderful, though!

Serves two

  • 6-1/2 oz milk
  • 5-6 ice cubes, or 1/2 cu chipped ice
  • 1-1/2 tbsp powdered malted milk
  • 4-5 very ripe strawberries, tops removed
  1. Combine milk, ice, and malt in blender and blend intermittently until ice is ground. Some "hailstones" will probably remain, depending on your blender, if you use ice cubes.
  2. Add strawberries and blend at the highest setting until frothed.
  3. Serve in chilled glasses with straws, perhaps garnished with fresh mint.

Note: As the frappe sits, it will separate somewhat into a frothy upper layer and a liquid lower layer.
