Red Velvet Quick Shake

In Cooking & Craftingby Jen18 Comments

Happy Mid-January friends! I know that some people might think setting up Valentine’s Day accoutrements in stores the day after Christmas seems a little premature, but I have to admit to being someone who finds immense pleasure in seeing those shiny red foil hearts and pink bursting blossoms on store shelves. I also think that all holiday celebrations are less than complete without a little something sweet to celebrate. Something sweet like this Red Velvet Quick Shake that takes just a few minutes to pull together!

I love to share recipes like this here for my fellow parents, who like me have little to no extra time, but still want to make special things to share with their families. Because seriously this shake is so easy to make! You guys just aren’t going to believe it.

Here’s the back story on how this Valentine’s Day concoction came to be. My kids have been begging for all things ice cream this month. What gives, because it’s the middle of the winter?? Plus it has been cold here for southern AZ, and so once I am home and all wrapped up in my flannel best, I am not leaving the house for anything. Last night in an ultimate moment of pure genius, when the kids started begging for shakes and ice cream, I whipped out this deliciousness, and it was gloriously silent for several long moments while they enjoyed and sipped their shakes.

Red Velvet Quick Shake

Ingredients

  • 2 to 3 cups vanilla ice cream

Instructions

  1. Blend Quick Shake ingredients together and enjoy!
  2. To make a sprinkle rim on any glass: Melt about 5 to 6 white chocolate candy melts in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Give it a good mix with a spoon when it comes out of the microwave. Dip the top of the cup rim in the melted chocolate and then quickly dip the now chocolate rimmed cup in a small bowl of sprinkles until the rim is covered.

  1. Wow, that is easy! I had no idea. We do have those ingredients around, because Scarlet loves to bake with red velvet cake mix, and who doesn’t have milk and ice cream?
    I’m with you – I get intense pleasure from seeing red and pink hearts at the store!

  2. I love it! Just spoon that stuff in!! I know my Grandbabies would love this and so perfect for Valentine’s! Thanks for sharing at Fiesta Friday!!
