This week I was invited to dinner at Mo’s which is a comfortable restaurant with cute design features open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food is very much American Diner. “A stylish place to have a home-cooked meal” as my dining partner T put it.

The menu offers a lot of choice with salads, hot and cold sandwiches, burgers, sundaes, cakes, ice creams with up to 22 toppings and of course milkshakes. We started with cheese quesadillas and spicy buffalo wings. I have to say I’m not a huge fan of quesadillas but these were very good and I loved the spicy buffalo sauce.

To follow we tried the TNT shrimp tacos, which had a good kick to it, and the Kobe beef meatloaf which came with the most delicious bacon, spring onion mash.

To drink we both indulged in a milkshake, the milkshake choice is extensive, T choosing the Nutella shake and myself having the date milkshake, both were delicious and came in traditional parlour glasses with the extra in the shakers for a top up!! All important! After deliberating for a while between the coconut cream cake and Jim’s 3 layer carrot cake (Jim being the COO) we decided to finish our meal with the Brownie a la MO’s which was a chewy, guey home baked chocolate brownie. We  shared!

Mo’s also offers an extensive kids menu with both fish fingers and chicken nuggets cooked fresh at the restaurant. Kids also eat for free every Sunday!!

Now I don’t often indulge in a milkshake but it was quite a treat! I then started to wonder how a milkshake differs from a smoothie.

” The main difference between smoothies and milk shakes is that the principal ingredient of the smoothie is fruit whereas the principle ingredient of the milkshake is ice cream.”

This has inspired me to combine the two and make a milkshake  smoothie, a SHOOTHIE ….

Strawberry and Blueberry Shoothie:

6 large strawberries, handful of blueberries, 6 ice cubes, 1 cup of milk and 2 scoops of strawberry ice cream. Add extra ice cream or honey to sweeten if necessary. Mix in blender and enjoy!
