Gingerbread Milkshakes

A recipe just in time for Christmas! You can either go out and buy some ginger thins (Ikea is a great spot to pick these up, else Continental or gourmet food shops should have them too!), or perhaps you need to use up some of your leftover gingerbread men from Christmas. Either way, this recipe can be made ALL year round for a tasty treat. 

Merry Christmas everyone!!
