Elvis Milk Shake - Yummy Yummy for your Tummy Tummy

I want to start with Emma Springer won the Halloween contest at school. I may have already told you all that but I can't remember. She and three of her friends dressed up as Mt Rushmore. It was really a simple costume to make, grey poster board - crinkled to look like stone, their faces cut out so they could be the presidents, and the hair drawn on the the shape of each presidential head. It was too cute! It was a total of about $8.00 to make for four girls! They all spent the night on a school night and giggled the night away! Halloween is just a 'fun' day a EBA anyway. The second thing that happened to Emma that day is she won first place in a t-shirt design contest! She designed a t-shirt encouraging kids to stay off drugs. When she got in the car that afternoon, she told her Dad, "this has been the best day ever!"

Now to the Elvis shake - Emma is 4H club President. This month they are learning about calcium. Sooooo, she came home from school and asked me.... Love, how do you make that Elvis shake? It has milk in it? RIGHT? I said, yeah, in the form of ice cream! oh and maybe a splash of milk..... Anyway we played around until we got the recipe right and here it is. Hope you enjoy. She did turn it in for her 4H recipe containing calcium. We think you could use ice cream or frozen yogurt if you want to be healthy ;)

2 1/2 C vanilla ice cream or frozen yogart
2 bananas
1 C milk
1/2 peanut butter
Mix in blender. Drink as milkshake.
