On this past Sunday’s episode of Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off, the bottom two celebrity contestants, Dean and Chilli, competed in a milkshake blind-tasting challenge to determine who was to go home. Dean made a boozy Creamsicle-inspired milkshake that Rachael and Guy raved about. Chilli made a milkshake more on the classic side — though there was nothing wrong with it, she still ended up being eliminated.
Dean’s milkshake recipe included orange liqueur, orange zest and orange segments. It also had a liqueur-soaked Twinkie on the side. Chilli’s milkshake featured a combination of chocolate, peanut butter and cookies in a kid-friendly nod to her son. Both of these recipes were really exceptional, which made judging them that much more difficult. Without knowing whose creation was whose, Rachael and Guy chose the Creamsicle milkshake because it stepped outside of the box. Chilli regretted playing it safe, but she was still proud of what she made.
If you were in either of the contestant’s shoes, what kind of milkshake would you have made?
