Purple Cow, yes I said Purple Cow!

Posted by Amy Miller on 29 January, 2014

Last Friday I had my wisdom teeth removed which left me with very little food to eat for a few days while I was told to be on a soft diet.  You know what that meant right?  Eat as much ice cream as you want, well maybe not as much as you want but you get my point...no ice cream eating guilt, I was told to eat ice cream! My husband ran out to get some "soft food" groceries for me and I told him to pick up some grape juice, I was getting sick of just drinking water.  When I was helping him put the groceries away I saw the grape juice and ice cream sitting together on the counter.

My childhood came calling back to me saying "Amy, make a purple cow!"  So here you go...a Purple Cow!

Scoop some vanilla ice cream in a glass and pour grape juice over the ice cream and you have a purple cow!  So you might be asking where did you come up with this awesome concoction?  I have to give all the credit to Mister Rogers' Neighborhood!  Yes, I learned how to make these from Mister Rogers' Neighborhood when I was a kid.  I must say they are totally yummy, makes a cool purple color and I have now become a little addicted to them.  If grape juice isn't your thing you can add whatever juice you want to the ice cream and make up your own _____cow float! Thanks Mister Rogers for making my wisdom teeth removal a little more enjoyable! ; ) What’s Baking is a section on my blog where I share various items I’ve been making and baking!  I’ve loved to bake since I was little!  Some recipes or creations I’ve made up myself and some are things I’ve made from my way too many Pinterest boards and from way too many bloggers I follow.  To take a look at some other things I’ve been baking go here!
