Recipe for Vanilla Milkshake With Funfetti Pieces

You’re going to love the ease of making homemade milkshakes!

Step 1: Add the Ice Cream

In a blender add your tub of ice cream. Blend the ice cream until it’s smooth.

Step 2: Add the Milk

Once the ice cream has a smooth consistency, add in 6-8 tablespoons of milk. Blend the milk into the ice cream until incorporated.

We like a thicker milkshake. If you prefer a runnier milkshake you’ll obviously want to add more milk.

Step 3: Add the Sprinkles

If you are using a Ninja like we did, remove the blade and add in your sprinkles. We used 3/4 of a 9 oz bottle of sprinkles for this recipe. Fold the sprinkles in with a spoon or spatula.

Step 4: Prepare the Rims

Grab the glasses that you are using and prepare the tops of them.

Using a spatula spread the icing on the top of the glass. Using a flat plate dip your glass in the sprinkles until all the icing is covered.

Fill your glass until nearly full. You’ll want to keep some room in the cup for the whipped cream.

Step 5: Add Toppings

Top your funfetti milkshake with canned whipped cream. You can use the tub stuff, but I think the canned comes out looking prettier!

Drizzle the top of the whipped cream with chocolate syrup. We repeated this step twice so that you can a taller effect of the whipped cream (a little food styling trick for you all!).
