  1. Put all ingredients in a food processor, blender or high speed blender and puree until smooth.
  2.  If using a high speed blender this will only take a few minutes. Traditional food processors or blenders will take longer, but eventually the mixture will come out nice and smooth. If you want a thinner mixture, then you can always add more milk.
