Chocolate Milk Float

Chocolate Milk Float

This one was Eve’s idea. I actually was out of float ideas, trying to think what is seasonal and fitting for January—when, I am sorry people, there is NOTHING, nothing, that is in season. (And I don’t want to hear from anyone in California about all the good stuff you have out there. Anything good here comes from there, which makes it sort of seasonal, but a little too well traveled.) So, I walked into the kitchen and asked for float ideas, and Eve said, “What about white milk with chocolate ice cream in it?” Well, that sounded a little gross to me, since I can’t stand drinking white milk. Fortunately for me, we were out of chocolate ice cream. So we tried a chocolate milk float with vanilla ice cream, instead, and it was pretty good.

It’s win-win-win: A new report finds that an organic dairy is better for 1) you, 2) the planet, 3) the cows.

We skipped the ice and seltzer water for this float, but if you are daring, it just might work—kind of like a Yoo-hoo float (not that I ever drank one of those, but in theory it sounds good, and better yet, it reminds me of the song “Summertime” by Kenny Chesney: And it’s two bare feet on the dashboard/Young love and an old Ford/Cheap shades and a tattoo/And a Yoo-Hoo bottle on the floorboard…sweet summertime. (Hey, I can dream, can’t I?)

If you are one of those people who like winter, you could make a hot chocolate float and add vanilla ice cream instead of whipped cream. Or better yet, add both. And marshmallows, too—although marshmallows might clog up the straw. Wait, can you drink hot fluids through a straw? OK, I’m getting delirious. I think I need to take some vitamin D. Wait, doesn’t milk have vitamin D in it? Even better…

Food sources of vitamin D can help you meet the new, higher daily guidelines.

Straw…

You get the picture.
