Sweet & Sour Citrus Shake

My girlfriend makes a milkshake that tastes like bubblegum. The trick is that lime, when combined with banana, gives it this unique taste. So a citrus shake was my answer to that. It's equally tasty and equally unique.

To make, you must start by scraping off the zest of 2 limes, 1 lemon, and 1 medium sized orange (a navel orange for example). If you don't have a zester you'll have to slice it off the fruit and then trim the white off...or just go buy a zester. Place the zest of the citrus in a blender along with the juice of the same fruit, making sure not to let any seeds falls in. Finally, add about 2 1/2 cups of vanilla ice cream, 1 cup of milk, and 1/2 cup of brown sugar. Blend till everything is nice and smooth and enjoy.

One last thing. If you like things sour, add less sugar and ice cream. Plus, if you happen to have citric acid lying around, you might as well dump some of that in.

Oh and the next time we do make a "bubblegum" shake, I'll be sure to post the recipe here.
