Scariest Vintage Recipes Countdown #7: Prune Spoon Up

Here is #7 on my Countdown to Scariest Vintage Recipe week:  Prune Spoon Up, first posted on Saturday, June 12, 2010. You all knew prunes would make this list. But of the many many scary prune recipes I've posted - this shake steals the show...

Enjoy this Prune Spoon-Up from the Good Housekeeping's Book of Ice Creams and Cool Drinks, from 1958.

1 cup pitted, cooked prunes

1 cup cold milk

1 cup crushed ice

In electric blender, combine all ingredients. Blend about 30 sec., or until smooth. Serve at once in glasses, with spoons. Makes 2 or 3 servings.

Wow. Oddly enough I am not finding photos of many prune dishes in my cookbooks - I wonder why?

Oh no, I missed seeing this delightful concoction on Monday. The name is disgusting and suggests things I'm too polite to type, but the drink probably tastes pretty good. Probably looks disgusting, too, though, which is why Amy didn't find a picture of it. If I get around to brewing some up for my family, and if they don't immediately dump it down the disposal, I'll take a picture and send it to her.
