Hands-on Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes

- ¼ c milk
- ¼ c Cointreau (orange liqueur)
In a blender, puree ice cream, strawberries, and orange liqueur until smooth. Divide among 4 glasses.
From Real Simple’s ’10 Ideas for: Vanilla Ice Cream,’ this is soooo good. My husband and I drank it all up – and no I didn’t cut it in half like I do with recipes a lot of the time! This drink is delicious, easy and quick.
I did use Triple Sec instead of Cointreau. Cointreau isn’t cheap and with this being the only recipe I had a use for it at the time, I couldn’t justify buying it. But I already had Triple Sec on hand, so voila!
As soon as strawberries are back in season, this will be back on my list to make. I can almost taste it now just telling you about it! Mmmm.
