I feel very lucky to have had the childhood I did. I come from a very loving extended family and my brother and I were always very close with each other and with my parents. We have so many happy memories of school, weekends at home and away, long summer days and lots of play time.
Some of my most cherished memories of childhood were spent with my grandma and grandpa (Oma and Opa). They lived a few blocks away from our elementary school and my Oma would often pick my brother and I up at the end of the day for a visit at their house. We would watch Full House, play cards and eat homemade cookies. My Oma was the best baker! She made traditional German cookies and we ate them alongside a tall glass of ice cold milk.
Milk and cookies. There’s a reason that’s ‘a thing‘. I can’t think of a better pairing of food and drink. Nothing as nostalgic, that’s for sure.
I love reliving old memories and creating new ones with my own kids. I love the milk & cookies memory, but I am not a baker (and neither is my mom!), so we need something new to start up.
I’ve partnered with Dairyland in celebration of their 100th anniversary to create some lasting memories with my girls. There may not be any baked treats around here, but there can be some other delicious goodies!
Dairyland’s delivery service has changed over the years (hint: no more horse and wagon). What hasn’t changed is our commitment to delivering products of the highest quality.
Enter the Milk ‘n’ Cookies Milkshake. This super easy recipe combines Vanilla Ice Cream, Dairyland Milk, a splash of vanilla and Oreo cookies. It is dangerously delicious and your kids will love everything from making these to drinking them. Trust me!
Milk ‘n’ Cookies Milkshake
- 2 cups vanilla ice cream
- 1 cup Dairyland milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup crushed oreo cookies
Blend all ingredients in a blender. Sip + enjoy!
Dairyland is bringing back classic vintage styles with our launch of a limited edition logo and design on our core milk cartons to celebrate our 100th anniversary. The update is a reminder to continue celebrating the simple things that have brought us closer over the last 100 years.
