Yesterday’s post was for peach ice cream. Now, you can just eat that goodie, or you can use it. Adam Reid has written Thoroughly Modern Milkshakes, a treasure of recipes that are outlandishly imaginative. I’m just beginning to warm up my blender with all of Adam’s ideas — like Sweet Corn and Basil or Pineapple, Ginger and Lime. But this shake of his, Triple Peach, is simply the best way to dip into his book.

There is no doubt about flavor here. This is peach and peach and peach. Time to reach for your blender.

Triple Peach Shake

Yield: about 3 ½ cup


  • ½ cup cold milk
  • 1 ½tablespoons peach jam preserves
  • ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 medium scoops peach ice cream about 6 ounces
  • 6 medium scoops peach sorbet about 18 ounces


Place the milk, jam, and vanilla extract in a blender and blend to mix thoroughly, about 15 seconds. Add the ice cream and sorbet and pulse several times to begin breaking them up. With the blender motor off, use a flexible spatula to mash the mixture down and onto the blender blades. Continue pulsing, stopping, and mashing until the mixture is well blended, thick and moves easily in the blender jar, roughly 30 to 90 seconds. Pour into a chilled glass of glasses, and serve at once
