Fresh Strawberry Milkshake

Austin is allergic to fresh strawberries.  All fresh fruit actually.  Even though he'll complain about me "forcing him to eat fresh fruit and build up a tolerance," I'm positive he's actually really grateful that he can bite into an apple, eat a peach, and I'm pretty sure he's really glad he can slurp up a strawberry milkshake on a hot day made with real, fresh strawberries.
Before he'd built up a tolerance, he used to ask the waitress if the milkshakes were made with fresh strawberries.  Almost 100% of the time, they would say, "yes, of course!"  When Austin would tell them he was allergic, then they would get honest, and say, "well, not fresh, fresh technically..."

This one is fresh, fresh.  You can taste the difference.  And since it's already supposed to be in the high eighties here tomorrow, I have a feeling I'll be making a lot more this summer!

8 strawberries, hulled
3 scoops vanilla ice cream
1/3 c. milk

1.  Place all ingredients in a blender and blend just until combined to keep a thicker shake...keep going if you like them thinner.
