Summer Shakes

Summer looks like it's finally arrived and sometimes it's nicer to be able to stay in with friends and enjoy the sunshine and the beautiful Summer eves. Night outs are so expensive these days and I'm more of a homebody and prefer the nights in, your in comfort, with company you enjoy, can listen to music you love and you don't have to spend as much.

MoneySupermarket gave the task to bloggers to do a Big Night In on a budget of £50*. Nights in on a budget can be tricky but if you find something that everyone loves and can be customised to everyone, you'll find something fun. Being that it's been unbelievably hot, we went for home-made milkshakes, yum! With toppings that can be customised, nuts, sprinkles, cherries, marshmallows...even stick some bubblegum at the bottom for a treat at the end. Of course don't forget the whipped cream & straws. Milk bottles for others to pour cooled summer fruits punch from out the glass tap dispenser, cute bottles for people to use and it just adds something to it. Darrel commented saying it felt like he was in an American diner having shakes lol. Maybe I should of served some fries in baskets.

For snacks I cooked peri-peri mac & cheese and vegetarian wraps, which are friendly for meat eaters too. This is something that can be done indoors or even outdoors while enjoying the summers cooler evenings. Sitting around listen to music while talking, it's the company that make the night in and that's what is priceless!

  11. Summer shakes are my favourite. I often try it at home during the summer season. I use strawberries, cherries, pineapples or apples on top of ice cream.
