Five Dolla' Shake from Pulp Fiction

In Pulp Fiction, Vincent couldn't believe that Mia ordered a milkshake for five dollars! We used our handy dandy inflation calculator to discover that a five dollar milkshake in 1990 would cost $8.94 in 2013. Now THAT is an expensive shake! Our Five Dolla' vanilla shake is made with a combination of real ice cream and soy milk and ice cream. Feel free to substitute regular milk and regular ice cream if you will be just as tasty!

2 pints of vanilla soy ice cream

1 pint of vanilla ice cream

1 1/2 cup unsweetened soy milk

1 cup vanilla or honey flavored cookies of choice (we like Annie's Honey Bunny Grahams)

1 large pinch of vanilla bean powder (optional)

Maraschino cherries (optional)


Combine the ice cream and milk in a blender and blend until smooth and thick. Add the cookies and blend just until the they are broken up into small pieces.

Serve the milkshake with a straw and top it with a maraschino cherry, just like in the movie!

Serves 6
