How could I mention Tim Tam without bringing up the famous Tim Tam Slam? It is not really a drink made with chocolate biscuits but it is a WAY of eating Tim Tam with your hot drink.
Hot drinks can be a cuppa (tea), coffee and in my case, hot milk with malt.
Tim Tam Slam
To do: You start with a cup of hot drink. Take a SMALL bite at opposite corners of a Tim Tam biscuits. Working very quickly, dunk one bitten side into the hot drink with you both hands and suck the hot drink through the other bitten side, as if a straw. As soon as the milk passes through the biscuit, the whole thing sort off collapses and you have to shove the whole thing in your mouth. (Yes, I said shove! How often do I get to instruct people to shove food into their mouth? )
The next drink recipe is dedicated to those who are enjoying warm and sunny days (I’m jealous!) and who are craving for a thick, icy cold chocolate milkshake with a hint of REAL raspberry flavour and texture from chocolate biscuit crumbs. Well lucky people, look no further, I have just the recipe for you below.
Raspberry Tim Tam Milkshake
Makes 2 cups
What you’ll need:
- 3 Tim Tam Original biscuits
- 1 cup of cold milk
- A handful of fresh/frozen raspberries (about 7- 8 raspberries)
- 3 – 4 scoops of chocolate ice cream
To do: Process the Tim Tam biscuits until resembles fine crumbs and set aside. Then combine milk, raspberries and ice cream in a milkshake container and process the mixture until smooth and creamy with a stick blender. Stir in the Tim Tam crumbs (leave some behind for garnish). Serve immediately.
I don’t think I need anything more to prove that I’m Truly, Madly Tim Tam. I hope you are too!
PS: I don’t know how you feel about gulping down the milkshake. The straw in the photo is an evidence of my vanity (oh it brings back the memories of me rocking my stilettos while sight-seeing with my beloved in Taronga Zoo in Dubbo). The biscuits crumbs cause some blockage to the conventional straws unless you have a larger straw (like the ones with the bubble teas).
PPS: First shove and then gulp. I’m definitely failing How To Be A Lady 101. ;P
