Pig In a Blender? CS Monitor brags of “Homemade bacon milkshake”

It seems the actual concoction is not listed on Official Menus and does not really have ‘oink‘ in it… But this guy decided to see if he could do his own and really infuse some of the meat into the usually sweet beverage?

We got curious about this at CSMonitor.com and immediately began researching this latest fast-food fad. It turns out the Jack in the Box “bacon milkshake” actually contains no bacon. Big surprise.

As appetizing as this sounds, we couldn’t do our own taste test because the closest Jack in the Box is more than 900 miles away. I got to thinking, if Jack in the Box was using fake syrup flavoring, what would the real thing taste like?

A milkshake with the flavors of salty bacon, sweet maple syrup, smokey toasted walnuts, and rich vanilla bean ice cream.

Bacon in a milkshake. Boom.

So I conducted a few experiments and tested them out on my friends. To our surprise, a homemade bacon milkshake is actually quite delicious!

If you can get past the initial – ewww – factor when you imagine bacon swimming around in ice cream, you really can’t lose with the flavors of salty bacon, sweet maple syrup, smokey toasted walnuts, and rich vanilla bean ice cream.

Do you wanna see if you can try to make it? Lemme know in the Comments box…

Serves 2

  1. 4-6 pieces of bacon (depending on your bacon threshold), cooked
  2. 1/4 cup walnuts, toasted
  3. 6-7 scoops of vanilla bean ice cream
  4. 1/8 cup maple syrup
  5. 1/2 cup milk

Cook bacon in a frying pan on the stove top until good and crispy. Drain on a paper-towel covered plate and allow to cool. In a clean pan or a toaster oven, toast the walnuts.

In a food processor, grind the bacon and walnuts together until fine.

In a blender, combine bacon, walnuts, ice cream, maple syrup, and milk and blend until smooth. You may want to adjust the milk and/or ice cream to satisfy your shake-thickness preference.

  • Divide into two tall glasses, insert a straw into each glass, and serve immediately.

Um, for the record? If anyone invents Pudding N’Souse soda or a shake? Please do NOT tell me, nor if the same is done for ROTI, let me enjoy them the way I am accustomed? Thanks!
