When warm weather strikes I can’t help but think of ways to keep cool amidst the heat. So I was happy when my summer started off just right with a package from Smiley 360. On the first official day of summer I received a T-Shirt, car freshener and coupons to try F’real milkshakes, all FREE.
After deciding when would be the best time to go, we walked over to the Turkey Hill Gas Station/Mini Market just at the corner. It’s nice to have a convenience store within walking distance. Truly…convenient. 😉 I located the F’real blending bar and in the fridge there were so many flavors of shakes and smoothies to choose from.
Although I wanted to try a smoothie, I’ve been making them a lot with my own blender at home and it had been soo long since having a milkshake. I figured I deserved the cool sweet treat. So I picked cookies and cream because they were out of peanut butter cup. :-/ Mint chocolate chip and Chocolate chip cookie dough also seemed to be a big hit.
Making the shake was simple. After selecting the flavor, simply remove the foil seal, place the cup into the designated holder then select thickness for the shake: less thick, normal, thick.
The machine lifts the cup, whirs as it prepares the shake, then lowers the cup after about a minute and the shake is ready to enjoy!
My children were excited and watched in amazed curiosity how this machine took a frozen beverage and delivered such a smooth creamy shake. It was a dose of summer coolness before their eyes. While it wasn’t the hottest of days, it was a perfect day to enjoy a cool treat on a beautiful summer night.
What cool treats do you enjoy to beat the summer heat?
