We’re celebrating  Christmas in July at Who Needs A Cape?  which got me thinking of something refreshing that could be enjoyed in July with the tastes of Christmas.  I decided on a festive yet cold & frosty Gingerbread Milkshake.  No secret that I enjoy gingerbread, way back in 2012 I posted a {copycat} Gingerbread Latte recipe, you’ll wanna check that post out if you’re a fan of gingerbread beverages.  With it being July though, I wanted something cold and dessert-like, so when I stumbled on this recipe I just knew it would be great.

All the flavors of the classic holiday cookie with the yummy addition of ice cream!  Now of course if it was December and I was baking up a storm, I’d throw in freshly baked gingerbread cookies, but since I’m not baking too much in July I went with store bought Gingersnap Cookies.  Nothing wrong with that, especially since the recipe calls for additional spices which amplify the cookie flavors.

This would be a fun treat to enjoy during tree-trimming,  just make a few batches in your blender.  When serving up, if you want to add a little pizzazz to your glasses,  just run a tiny amount of molasses around the edge of the glass and dip in crushed gingersnap cookies.  Kids especially think that touch is fun.
