Remember Kelis? Her 2003 anthem “Milkshake” contained a euphemism so indecipherable that we all accepted that the titular milkshake that brought all the boys to the yard was in fact just the dairy-based beverage we knew and loved.
Since then, Kelis has trained at Le Cordon Bleu culinary school and published a cookbook, but one very important dish is missing from her repertoire.
In an interview with The Guardian, Kelis was asked “what would go in a Kelis milkshake?” She replied:
I don’t think I’ve ever made a milkshake.
Yes. Kelis, the best thing to happen to milkshakes since chaste teens on dates in the 1950s, has never even made the beverage that made her famous. And it’s not because she doesn’t own a blender, because as she also told The Guardian:
I made a smoothie the other day that was really good – protein powder, spinach, orange, and crushed ice with a little bit of honey and coconut water. I’ll make you a Kelis smoothie next time you come over.
A smoothie? Oh, girl.
