Are you a milkshake fan? My dad always used to get me a strawberry milkshake when I wasn’t feeling well (ok so maybe not the best choice – but the thought was there). We had a place called Velvet Freeze near us that made the best shakes. Now homemade is really the only way to go I think. What’s your favorite flavor?
