Make Homemade Milkshakes:
Who doesn’t love milkshakes?! I know my kids love them! It’s always a treat to get a milkshake when out at a restaurant with your child, but have you ever thought of making them at home? Such a simple way to spend time with your kids but also so much fun and easy. It’s even a free date if you already have or would typically buy the ingredients as part of your grocery budget.
There are a million recipes out there as well as variations for the types of milkshakes you can make. You can make them with no planning at all or take some time before your date and make sure to pick out what milkshakes you want to make that day so that you have all the ingredients at home.
WMTDS (What Makes This Date Special):
There is something about creating a meal or, in this case, milkshakes together and then enjoying what you made after you’re finished. There is a lot of love to be found together in the kitchen regardless if you’re with your child or another loved one.
Familiarity with the kitchen
You or your child may not like milkshakes, but don’t allow that to deter you. Find something sweet you both enjoy and make it at home, preferably something you would typically only eat or drink at a restaurant.
Here are some ideas –
Tarts. Baklava. Thumbprints. Pies. Cookies. Mousse. Sorbet. Cupcakes. Cobbler. Custards. S’ mores. Fudge. Shortcakes.
Only the amount of money that this would cost you over and above your regular grocery budget.
Talk ahead of time about what you would like to make together and make sure you have your ingredients ahead of time or make going to the grocery store part of your date.
