A party worthy milkshake!!
When I was a kid, ice cream was our dessert of choice. Probably because we ALWAYS had some in the freezer, but also because it was a favorite of my dad’s.
We loved blending up a cold, creamy milkshake or malt for us, especially to enjoy outside on the porch after a hot summer day.
This Cake Batter Milkshake is definitely something that is perfect for sipping after a warm day. It’s an amazing milkshake that tastes just like it came from the soda shop! It is super easy to make and comes together in minutes.
This fun milkshake is great for celebrating the little things in life, too! When your kids come home with a perfect score on a spelling test, after they hit their first home-run or learning how to ride their bike , a Cake Batter Milkshake with lots of celebratory sprinkles is definitely in order.
Everyone in the family will love this fabulous ice cream drink!
Just mix and enjoy!
BLEND. In a blender, add the ice cream, milk and cake mix. Blend until smooth and creamy. Add the sprinkles and pulse once or twice just to combine.
SERVE. Pour into a glass and top with whipped cream, sprinkles and a cherry on top. Enjoy right away.
- Drizzle some hot fudge over it
- Use a different cake mix flavor for example use a carrot cake cake mix for a carrot cake milkshake!
- To make a thicker milkshake use slightly less milk than the recipe calls for
- Use a different kind of ice cream to match you cake mix (if you were planning on changing that too).
Tips + Storing Info
If you don’t want to use a basic yellow cake mix you could totally use funfetti cake mix.
For a thicker milkshake use a thicker milk aka whole milk. For an average to thinner milkshake use 2% or skim milk.
To make this dairy free, use a non-dairy ice cream and milk.
To STORE, pour it into a freezer safe cup and place that into a freezer safe bag, this way you can avoid freezer burn. Let it thaw in the fridge for about 30 minutes before serving. Don’t forget to remove any straws before freezing the milkshake, or else it won’t turn out very well during the thawing process.

This is an un-wise thing to advise people to do. 🙁 You should not EVER consumer raw flour, which is obviously a big percentage of a cake mix.
I was thinking the same! I’ve heard raw flour can make you sick!
Every time I bake cake i eat the raw cake mix its delicious.. still alive. 🤭 i obviously don’t eat the whole thing
Cake in drink form, yes, please!! This is one of our favorites!! Rich & creamy, it’s a hit with my family!
Milkshakes are a great choice for the summertime! This cake batter version is worth a try.
OMG this recipe is amazing! I can’t quite get my whipped cream as pretty as yours but the flavor is great.
DO NOT EAT RAW CAKE MIX
Raw flour is dangerous
