Kids of All Ages Look to Shake Up Summer

Contributed by: NewsUSA

(NewsUSA) - Nothing induces summertime nostalgia like a milkshake, and no wonder -- milkshakes have a venerable and tasty history.

Milkshakes were developed as health drinks. Of course, ingredients like heavy cream, port wine and whiskey were considered healthy at the time. Originally sold in pharmacies, milkshakes soon made the transition to charming soda fountains, or malt shops.

Kids of All Ages Look to Shake Up Summer
Few Americans have old-fashioned soda fountains in the neighborhood anymore, and the milkshake loses a bit of its charm when it moves from tall, clear glass to fast-food styrofoam cup. But capturing the spirit of yesteryear at home takes only a few ingredients and a blender.

Vitamix (www.vitamix.com), maker of the Vitamix 5200, a blender so powerful that it can liquefy whole fruits and vegetables, including their peels and seeds, in seconds, encourages its customers to recapture the spirit of milkshakes past, whether by adding healthy ingredients, like bananas, or by mixing it up with alcohol to appeal to a more adult crowd.
