This cupid-approved creamy, dreamy red velvet milkshake is a simply sweet treat for your Valentine. It’s ready in only 5 minutes!
The chocolate dipped sprinkle rim makes the red velvet milkshake look pretty and is sure to put a smile on someone’s face.
If you love red velvet cake and milkshakes, then this Red Velvet Milkshake is calling your name!
Love is in the air and soon it will be Valentine’s Day. And It’s the perfect sweet treat to share with that someone special. Whether you want to surprise the kids after school or serve it after your Valentine’s Day dinner, it will be an awesome hit.
The serving size can depend on what you like. I went with these 8 oz. canning jars, placed the rims in melted hot fudge, and then dipped them onto a plate of sprinkles.
I think this could be a fun way to involve kids in the kitchen too if they want to help!
How to make red velvet milkshakes
DECORATE. Place sprinkles on a plate then dip the rim of your glass into the warm hot fudge and dip into sprinkles.
BLEND. In a blender add the ice cream, cake mix, milk, and extract. Blend until smooth.
ENJOY! Pour red velvet milkshake into glasses and top with whipped cream and additional sprinkles if desired.
TOPPING IDEAS + Variations
Here are few ideas of things you can add to the top:
- Pieces of red velvet cake/crumbled pieces of cake
- Chocolate shavings
- Chocolate syrup drizzle
- Mini marshmallows
- Mix in mini chocolate chips
Change it up:
- Use chocolate ice cream
- Dip rim in white chocolate
The options are endless!
STORE leftover milkshake in a freezer-safe cup, preferably with a lid, and keep it in the FREEZER for about a week. It will definitely thicken up so do not freeze it with a straw in it!
Let it thaw slightly before trying to put a straw in it and drinking it. If you are planning on keeping it in the freezer for a while you will want to have a lid on it to prevent freezer burn
