Key Lime Shake / Smoothie

Key Lime Shake
"Oh Blogging Muse , invoke me with some charm , to cook , click and post . 
 Bless me with it ,  If you want me to run this again" .....
(With a change in tone)
......Ah I could feel a bit of the spell , you send me 
But mind you , a bit couldn't get me do wonders
Do I really need to ask you this all the time?
Why wouldn't you let it flow freely? .......
Key Lime for shake

Guys I am not crazy... I don't know why, I didn't cook anything last week and was living on take outs, salads and ready to eats!!! Can you believe it, me of all the people , who hates to order take outs , doing that all weekdays last week? But the only positive thing I did was getting myself hooked onto Politics , Philosophy and Psychology with  Rousseau, Kant and Nietzsche... .
But weekends were a different story , had a party at friends place and the gracious hostess packed me  leftovers , and have it even for today.
Key Lime Shake 2

What is your favorite summer thirst-quencher?? For me, its always different colored lemonades , Sambharam and OJ ( if it is a thirst quencher at all). I was sick and tired of the same things again and again ; after seeing the recipe in Good Housekeeping, tried it and we loved it . It was a cool and creamy drink for the warm weather and we enjoyed it a lot.. 
The sweetness of ice cream and added sugar balances the tartness of the lime juice.

This looks terrific. I wish I could try this but as soon as we grab the ice cream from the freezer we immediately spoon into bowls and devour it. If we are thirsty we drink my iced tea with lemon juice.
If we could just exercise some restraint, these drinks (love the frozen limeade)would be wonderful.
Thank You.
