Tips, Variations + 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.
- 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)
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.
