Red Velvet Milk Shakes!

Oh Nelly do I have an awesome recipe for you today.

I love red velvet cake.

And I love shakes.

Add them together and you get a red velvet shake!

I just have one word for you.

Y.U.M.

These are so easy and they only take about 3 seconds to prepare. They’re most definitely the perfect Valentine’s Day party recipe around! Well, except for the Neutella brownies I have coming up for you next week. Those are really good too.

But I digress…

Let’s get started shall we!

 

On to the ingredients, you will need:

  • 1 cup vanilla ice cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 tsp. red velvet cake mix (dry)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Optional: Whipped cream & sprinkles!

(Just pretend there is milk and vanilla in this photo. Oops!)

 

STEP 1:

Get out your blender and have a willing participant scoop in some ice cream…

STEP 2:

Once your first assistant gets bored, call in his big sister and have her add in 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 tsp. of vanilla extract.

STEP 3:

Next add in 3 tsp. of red velvet cake mix (dry from the box)… As you can see she’s counting carefully.

STEP 4:

Blend well, then pour your shake into glasses. This recipe makes about 2 shakes, so I tripled it for our family of 6.

Next add on some fancy whipped cream to the tops.

STEP 5:

Don’t forget the pretty sprinkles. After all, they kind of make the shake you know what I’m sayin’?

Then add in some cute valentine straws, I found these at Michael’s, but I’ve seen them just about everyone this time of year.

And BAM! Shakes are served!

And the consensus is…Y.U.M.

Just like I said before!

As if you might doubt me.

But seriously, everyone loved these!
