Purple Cow Shake

Treat yourself to this Purple Cow Shake! Only 3 ingredients! Easy and delicious! #milkshake #coolsummer
Have you ever heard of a Purple Cow Shake? Or maybe you've heard or a Purple Cow Float? I know, it sounds crazy ... but it is soooo good! The shake is a combination of grape juice, milk and ice cream, while the float typically is grape soda over vanilla ice cream (like a Root Beer Float).

Were getting into the Summer mode here at the Love Bakes Good Cakes house .... we're getting a pool put in our backyard, so excitement is brimming over! The kiddos can't wait to watch the construction and finally be able to hop in! They should be out to start digging the hole for the pool tomorrow or Friday - so be prepared for Instagram pictures! :)

Speaking of Summer, it's been really hot here in Phoenix - not that I'm complaining - I actually like the heat better than the cold! :) But, the heat does tend to make me drink more throughout the day. I drink a lot of water (and coffee, but that's another story!) - but really, there's only so much water one can drink before you just have to have something else, ya know?! I know I've told y'all before that I LOVE fruity drinks in the Summer and this Purple Cow Shake reminds me of my childhood. It's so simple to make since there are only 3 ingredients!

  3. Interesting! I'd never heard of a purple cow before. Guess they didn't have them here in Va? Sounds good though. Thanks for the recipe. P.s. Yes it is hot in Phoenix. We went there last summer for vacation, and I although it was well over 100 every day one only had to drive a couple hours for the temps to be way cooler.

  10. We used to have a drugstore in town with an old-fashioned soda counter. You could order brown, black and white, or purple cows. Love that you are keeping an old tradition alive!

  15. One of my son's favorite desserts is grape soda mixed with condensed milk and frozen like granita. So, of course this Purple Cow Shake appeals to him! He picked it to feature at tonight's See Ya in the Gumbo. P.S. He likes the name too!
