These milkshakes are inspired by one of my favourite ingredients of all time, honey.
I add honey to almost everything! You can use it in your tea, mix it in salad dressings and even add it to pizza! Yes, I said pizza. The saltiness of the bubbly cheese mixes so well with the sweetness of honey – its absolute perfection! Don’t even get me started on the health properties of honey. The list is too long to mention here but to give you an example; recently it’s proved a lifesaver in our home as a soothing throat and flu remedy (hot toddy alert!)
You would be hard pressed to find a bigger fan of this versatile product from nature.
I partnered up with Woolworths to share these decadent Earl grey and honey milkshakes with you because, well, who said milkshakes are exclusively for summer?
Or perhaps you need to bring a boy to your yard, pronto!?
Everyone knows a sure fire way to achieve the latter is through milkshakes.
I leave you with this parting thought from the only other honey fan that is more obsessed than I.
The incomparable Winnie-the-Pooh.
“Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.” “Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think.

- 2 earl grey tea bags
- ½ a cup of boiling water
- 2 tablespoons of honey
- 1 ½ cups vanilla ice cream
- 1 cup milk
- ½ a cup of cream
- Whipped cream to top
- Chocolate to decorate
- Honey to drizzle
Add the tea bags to the boiling water and let seep for 4 minutes. No longer as the tea will become bitter!
Add the honey and stir. Let the tea cool. You can add two blocks of ice to speed up the process.
Blend together the tea, ice cream, milk and cream until light and frothy.
Serve topped with whipped cream, chocolate and a drizzle of honey!
