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.
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!)
Get out your blender and have a willing participant scoop in some ice cream…
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.
Next add in 3 tsp. of red velvet cake mix (dry from the box)… As you can see she’s counting carefully.
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.
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!
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! (I know, it’s early, but I’m in the mood.)
I hope you enjoy this recipe, if you try it make sure to leave a comment below letting me know what you think!
