$5 Milkshake from Pulp Fiction
Pulp Fiction is one of those movies filled with food inspiration. It's not exactly the type of movie you'd see looking for recipes, and that's exactly is what makes it most interesting.
Previously we made a Big Kahuna Burger, but that is not the only food idea given to us by this movie: later Fabienne will talk about her idea of a perfect breakfast: blueberry pancakes, eggs over easy, and five sausages topped off with a slice of blueberry pie; and today we are making the $5 milkshake, thanks to a reader who actually asked for that! Thanks, Nicole!
Vincent Vega couldn't believe that a milkshake, which is only ice cream and milk is so expensive. He even asks the waiter if it has bourbon or anything, as the price seems so unreasonable to him. He finally asks Mia for a sip as he has to know what is so great about a $5 milkshake. Pulp Fiction seems to move around decades and I myself can't tell exactly what decade it is set in, and as you can see if you look around the Internet, many people also spend their free time trying to figure out what is the significance of the $5 shake, among other symbols in the movie.
For me, the greatest thing about this shake has to be the whipped cream, I absolutely love to add it to all kinds of drinks, as you can see from my rendition of Zoolander's Orange Mocha Frappuccino and the Drink Me Potion from Alice in Wonderland.
I am very fond of smoothies and a milkshake it's just a fun and no so healthy smoothie, nonetheless, delicious! My favourite usually goes like this: banana, apple, peanut butter, plain yoghurt and milk. This shake is exactly the same except no apple and ice cream instead.
In the movie, you could choose either two kinds of milkshakes: the chocolate one, called "the Amos and Andy", in reference to the black comedians from the 50's, or the Five Dollar Shake, also known as "the Martin and Lewis", who was a white duo. I also like other descriptions of food things in the movie, for instance, Vince asks the option of having his steak "bloody as hell" or "burnt to a crisp".
