I make really like making milkshakes. They’re so easy to make and are a refreshing treat to sit down and enjoy, especially if you’ve got young kids.
This cupcake milkshake recipe came about because I wanted a smaller portion to give the kids. I trimmed the cups to 2 inches high, trimmed the straws, and proclaimed them to be Cupcake Milkshakes. Pretty adorable, right?
Birthday Cake Milkshakes
This recipe is for Birthday Cake Flavored Milkshakes. So the little shakes not only look like little cupcakes but taste like them, too. To do this, I mix vanilla cake mix with the milk and then blend it up with the ice cream.
To complete the cute cupcake look, top each little cup with whipped cream and colorful sprinkles.
You can make this milkshake recipe any flavor you and your kiddos like, just play around with the cake mix and ice cream flavor combinations! Enjoy.Print
