I came up with this adult version of a chocolate shake many years ago while on vacation with some friends. We had a little non-dairy ice cream on hand, some Oreos and some Kahlua. What could be more natural than to put all this together? I think the peanut butter is a recent addition, well, just because I love peanut butter and chocolate.
La Cucaracha? I think the crumbled Oreos look like crushed cockroaches, I guess. Sorry. It sounded exotic.
I've been told the song "La Cucaracha" is all about stomping on cockroaches. Or more metaphorically, about stomping out an oppressive regime.
La Cucaracha (adult version)
Makes one shake
(Why would you want to share?)
1 cup vanilla non-dairy ice cream
1 Tbs chocolate syrup (or 1/2 Tbs cocoa)
1/2-3/4 cup non-dairy milk
1 Tbs Kahlua
1 Tbs peanut butter
Mix all items in a blender, pulse 'til mixed. Add more ice cream if you like a thicker shake. Leave out Kahlua if you are sharing with anyone under age 21. Top with Oreo crumbles.
* To make this gluten/wheat-free, either leave out the crumbles or use a gluten-free or wheat-free chocolate cookie. Newman's makes a wheat-free Oreo-like cookie (it's not GF).
