Foodie Pen Pal August Reveal!

This is my first month being a Foodie Pen Pal I am so excited to participate in this program. Seriously, who wouldn’t want to get a fun package in the mail full of delectable goodies picked out just for you? Ms. Lindsay of The Lean Green Bean has made that happen. I was lucky enough to be paired up with Courtney who is an amazing photographer (you can find her HERE) and happens to have great taste in foodie goodies!

Here is the sweet package she sent me along with a super sweet note:



When I saw the PB2 and pretzel slims I decided immediately to make ice cream. Well, ice milk to be exact. I recently bought a cute little soft serve ice cream maker by Hamilton Beach. Although the jury is still out on its performance (the milk wasn’t quite frozen enough in the end), I was pleased with the speed and even as a cold soup it was pretty awesome.

Thanks, Courtney for all the goodies and the inspiration!

Cinnamon Peanut Butter Ice Milk:

Combine all ingredients together. Stir until smooth. Follow your ice cream maker’s instructions to finish. Top with crushed dark chocolate pretzel slims. Eat fast before it melts!
