You guys, this milkshake is real serious. It combines what amounts to 2 brownies with a pint (!) of ice cream and whips it up into a half-frozen concoction that the hedonist in all of us dreams of. In fact, the real title of this milkshake is “Like a fat kid loves…Milkshake.” The always clever and vibrant Sarah from The Sugar Hit just released her first book, The Sugar Hit!: Sweets That Pack a Punch!,
and nestled among the signature graphics are recipes like this one. I love this gal and her amazing food brain–check out this Jam Donut Bundt number she created as a guest post for this blog just last summer! The book has recipes for all times of the day and occasions–Breakfast & brunch, Coffee Break, Midnight Snacks, Party Time, Happy Holidays, and Healthy Junk…because I guess we can’t live off of Homemade Tim Tams, Garbage Brownies, and Giant Cinnamon Buns alone. The recipe for this milkshake in the book calls for a whole slice of birthday cake but, since I had none on hand (obviously, I’m living wrong), I subbed it out for two fudgy brownies and I think it worked out just fine. #MATH
I used coffee ice cream for this because it’s been my favorite since I was a (weirdo) kid. Use whatever you like! Whipped cream, cherry, and sprinkles optional…but, absolutely encouraged.
- 1 piece of Birthday cake (or 2 brownies)
- 3 large scoops (or an entire pint!) of your favorite ice cream
- ¼ to ½ cup milk
- for topping:
- whipped cream
- Combine the cake, ice cream, and milk in the canister of a blender. Top with the lid and blend until smooth! Pour (or scrape) into a glass, top with whipped cream, cherries, and sprinkled. Chug through a straw or just
spoonit into your mouth.
Monday just thanked you for saving it’s butt! This is fabulousness in a cup!
