When we were in NYC last, we had an amazing shake at the shake shack, called open standard. I decided to re-create it. It's a beautiful blend of fresh strawberries, orange zest, caramel, and poppy seeds. I softened the ice cream, and layered the ingredients in a glass and just stirred it together. The only thing I would change is that I bought thick caramel sauce, like the kind on a sundae, and I needed more of a runny sauce, which would swirl easier. I never would have put these flavors together, especially poppy seeds, but they add a great little crunch. It's a surprising and delicious combination. Tyler asked, "why is orange zest never in ice cream when it is so great?" I couldn't give him an answer because I didn't understand either! Grab some fresh strawberries and give it a try. I promise you'll love it.
