huckleberry milkshake2

Living on campus and tired of the normal, everyday options at the Food Zoo? Lucky for you, we’ve got a Food Zoo hack for you this week in the form of a huckleberry milkshake. Montana is known for its huckleberries. They complement everything from pancakes, syrup for your pancakes, milkshakes or side dishes. For this milkshake, you don’t need to buy huckleberries or a blender. All it requires is five huckleberry ice cream sandwiches from the food zoo ice cream freezer and a half glass of milk. Don’t stress, if they run out of ice cream sandwiches, ice cream bars will work just fine.


-Five huckleberry ice cream sandwiches

-Half glass of milk

Start by grabbing a cup and filling it up with milk. Then head over to the freezer and grab five huckleberry ice cream sandwiches or ice cream bars.

Next, grab a knife, spoon, and a plate. Wherever you’re sitting, start unwrapping the ice cream sandwiches. You’ll need to cut the sandwich part off of the actual huckleberry ice cream. This can get messy, so have some napkins nearby.

As you separate the sandwiches, drop the ice cream filling into the glass of milk.

Repeat this for the next four ice cream sandwiches. If you have ice cream bars, it will be tricky to separate the exterior from the ice cream, but it’s doable.

You should have a half glass of milk with five blocks of huckleberry ice cream. Now, take a spoon and start mushing it together. This will take a few minutes.

When you’re done, you’ll have a huckleberry milkshake. It’s creative, delicious, and you didn’t even need a blender.
