Boo-nilla Ghost Milkshakes - delicious vanilla treats turned into adorable ghosts that are perfect for Halloween!

Who’s excited for Halloween? We sure are! I’ve got another festive recipe for you today, and it couldn’t be easier to make!

I thought it would be fun to celebrate the release of Raina Telgemeier’s new book Ghosts with a sweet and spooky frozen treat. Telgemeier is the #1 New York Times bestselling, multiple Eisner Award-winning author of Smile, Drama and Sisters. She’s created a moving and insightful story about the power of family and friendship, and how it gives us the courage to do what we never thought possible. Ghosts is a whimsical graphic novel full of Mexican culture and traditions. It’s a powerful book for young readers and perfect for this time of year!

Boo-nilla Ghost Milkshakes 6

I love the illustrations!!

I love that the book takes place in a city called Bahía de la Luna since Luna is our family name. This is where the ghosts live, so I thought it would be great to make some delicious Ghost milkshakes to celebrate the release of this new book.

To make these Boo-Nilla Ghost Milkshakes, you’ll need 3-4 glasses or jars (depending on the size), a black permanent marker, some cute little straws (totally optional), vanilla ice cream, milk, vanilla extract, heavy cream, and powdered sugar. If you want to get extra creative you can dip the rim of the glass into lemon juice or water and then sprinkles, it looks extra cute 🙂 Grab the recipe for the vanilla milkshakes below:

    We just pulled out the Halloween boxes and found the first book I gave the grandkids! A fun tradition each year and would love to add this to our collection. The book sounds like a wonderful story to read to the whole family! (and candy apples! When I was a kid it was such a treat and the first house you hit )
