The other day my daughter and I were discussing the finer points of birthday celebrations. She has them a lot of school and is always telling me what her friend’s parents send in for snacks. Most of the snacks that come in are fresh fruit and cute mini-muffins but my daughter desperately wishes someone would send in milkshakes. I think she’ll have to wait a while for that to happen, but in the mean time I experimented with a birthday cake batter milkshake just for fun. I’ll have to keep it in mind in case I actually have the chance to bring them to school one day.
The Birthday Cake Batter Milkshake
Makes 4 small milkshakes
1 pint vanilla ice cream
2 cups milk
3/4 cup dry boxed vanilla cake batter mix
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Place the vanilla ice cream, milk, cake batter mix and vanilla extract into a blender and blender until smooth. If you want the shake a little thinner add a little more milk until you reached the desired consistency. Top with whipped cream and birthday sprinkles!
