Joy at Joy of Desserts is having her “We All Scream For Ice Cream” Recipe Round Up. Here is my contribution.
I love ice cream and I try to find ways to make it even more delicious. I got this recipe from Paula Deen on The Food Network. This milkshake is soooo decadent and sinfully delicious. It’s just like drinking a cinnamon roll. It is to die for! WARNING: This milkshake is so yummy. Please refrain from drinking it too fast or “brain freeze” will occur.

4 scoops vanilla ice cream
1 package instant vanilla pudding, prepared according to directions

In a blender, mix together the ice cream, prepared pudding, milk, and caramel, Add the cinnamon/sugar mixture (Leaving a little left over). Blend until combined. Top with a dollop of cream cheese icing, sprinkle with a little cinnamon/sugar over the whole shake. Garnish with a cinnamon stick.

I have made this twice. The first time, I made the full-fat version as written, but I was moaning in pain afterward because of the richness. The second time I used sugar free jello Cheesecake pudding prepared with 1% milk and light ice cream. I omitted the cream cheese icing and instead topped it with a squirt of light whipped cream. It still had a lot of sugar with the caramel sauce, cinnamon sugar and ice cream, but it lightened it up enough to where I didn’t feel like dying after eating it. And it was still just as sinful and delicious tasting as the original.
