It's a new year, and some of you might be trying to think of ways to eat healthier.

And on a completely unrelated note, I would like to introduce you to the Crumb Cake Shake.

The inspiration for this shake comes from a coffee cake shake known as the "Mother Futcher" from Tradewinds Cafe of Portland, Maine, famously consumed by Adam Richman on Man Vs. Food. As soon as I saw this frozen treat, I knew I had to make my own version.

Combining two of the world's most perfect foods—crumb cake and ice cream, mixed with a dash of cream for good measure—this shake is an absolute dream, especially when served with a crumb cake wedge as garnish.
