Rose and chocolate shake

This is a simple shake, part dark chocolate, part rose ice-cream; no need to make your own rose ice-cream, just add some rose syrup to vanilla ice-cream until the taste feels right to you; I also added some rose petal jam which is usually available in any Middle-Eastern store.

Question: Why does’n’t milk shake become a full-fledged dessert item? Any opinion on the matter? 

INGREDIENTS: 1 serving

  • 1 scoop of vanilla ice-cream, 1 scoop of dark chocolate ice-cream
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 tsp of rose water, 2 tbsps  of rose petal preserve, a couple of drops of rose food color (optional)
  1. Place the scoop of vanilla ice-cream, 1/2 cup of milk, the rose water and rose petal preserve in a bowl; use an immersion blender to mix it all up till smooth. Transfer to a glass; repeat the operation with the dark chocolate ice-cream. Serve.
NOTE: You can mix the dark chocolate ice-cream with milk chocolate for an extra-chocolaty taste. You can substitute rose syrup instead of the rose petal preserve.

    Il faut absolument que je visite le Liban et ses voisins. J’en ai envie et depuis si longtemps.
    Quand on te visite, on a tout le moyen -orient dans son assiette et c’est formidable.
    Depuis ton dernier message, quand je clique sur ton nom, je tombe non pas sur ton blog mais sur un site de pub sur le Liban et Beyrouth.
    A bientôt.

    Hi – love your recipes and dying to try this with homemade vanilla icecream. Any idea where I can buy a domestic ice cream maker in Lebanon? thanks!

    @Sue: Where are you located? I would try the large department stores in your area or a mall with a big flagship supermarket like TSC; if you are in Beirut, there are a few stores that specialize in kitchen utensils, like A&P in Hamra (street parallel to it ); there are all of the Khoury Home chain stores, there is a store in Ashrafieh with kitchen supplies, etc.
