A Thick Creamy White Chocolate Raspberry Milkshake made with fresh frozen raspberries, rich white chocolate and raspberry ice cream in a festively rimmed sprinkled glass, topped off with fluffy whipped cream and a fresh raspberry. The perfect Valentines Day treat for two!
The last few years Milkshakes have been all the buzz at upscale treat shops! From rimming the glasses with fun sprinkles to piling them a mile high with donuts, cheesecake, cupcakes, candy bars and more! It’s like having the Mount Olympus of Caloric carbs delivered to your table!
I keep wondering how anyone eats all of that…as fun as it looks…it seems like a LOT! Have you seen them?
I’m always impressed that they can get that much on top of a glass! I’m just grateful I’m not the waitress carrying that thing…because the reality is…my customers would be wearing that Shake out of the shop! (Dad always said they should have named me “Grace”! lol)
Since we’ve established I’m a little leery of the gargantuan loaded Milkshakes…let’s talk about the festive “rimming of the glass”!
I love drinks with pretty embellished rims! From flavored sugars and slices of fruit, to the newest trend… of using colorful fun sprinkles! You can use all sorts of “editable adhesives” to hold the delightful confetti to the edges of a glass, from corn syrup to my favorite… Marshmallow Fluff.
How To Make an Old Fashioned Homemade
White Chocolate Raspberry Milkshake
Let’s start out with the ingredients you’ll need to make this creamy Milkshake.
- 4 cups, or large scoops of Top Quality White Chocolate Raspberry Ice Cream
- 1 Cup freshly frozen raspberries
- 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
- Marshmallow Fluff
- 1/2 cup decorative sprinkles
- Whipping cream, fresh raspberries, and mint leaves for garnish
How To Rim A Drink with Festive Sprinkles
If you want to decorate the rim of your glass with party sprinkles (and who wouldn’t?), do so before blending your milkshake. This way the glasses are ready to go as soon as you have everything mixed together. This is a “frozen treat” and it tends to melt fast after it has been blended.
Like I mentioned above you can use light corn syrup…but I love the “white” of the marshmallow fluff against the sprinkles! It just helps those sprinkles…pop!
Place a little dab of marshmallow fluff on your clean finger tip (not to state the obvious…but clean is always better) and run it around the edge of the rim of the glasses you’ll be serving your shakes in.
Holding the glass over a larger bowl, sprinkle the sprinkles around the glass so that it will stick to the prepared rim. Once all your glasses are festively rimmed, set them aside while you prepare the milkshakes.
How To Make A Raspberry White Chocolate Milkshake
In the base of your blender pour 3/4 cup milk and 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream. The whipping cream creates a creamier milkshake as it blends.
I know you’ll ask, so I’m going to tell you…I use a KitchenAid Blender. It has amazing power and makes the BEST milkshakes ! It’s a power horse! I’ll place the link for this amazing blender below in the recipe card. This is not a sponsored post…just sharing what I like!
TIP: Always begin making a shake, or smoothie, with the liquids in the bottom of your blender. It allows the blender to do its job by blending the thicker ingredients into the liquids down by the blades.
Add 4 cups, or four large scoops of White Chocolate Raspberry Ice Cream. One large scoop tends to be just about 1 cup. So bust out those ice cream scooping muscles and get busy!
Add 1 cup frozen raspberries. You can use fresh raspberries if you don’t have frozen, but I like to add frozen berries to make the shake extra thick!
Blend on Medium to High Speed until creamy and smooth. You may have to stop once or twice to give it a little mix…but it will all blend together. If it is thicker than you like, add a few extra splashes of milk a litte at a time until you reach the desired consistency.
During the final stages of blending toss in the fresh raspberries. STOP THE MIXER! (Just sayin’….ain’t nobody want to clean up that mess!) This adds a little “pop” of raspberry flavor from the juice and kicks the color up nicely.
In the prepared milkshake glasses pour the Raspberry Milkshake mixture to just below the rim of the glass. If you’re adding whipped cream to the top, you want a little wiggle room, so the weight of the whipped cream doesn’t cause the milkshake to run over the edge of the glass.
Top milkshakes off with a pretty squirt of whipped cream, a fresh raspberry and a sprig of mint. Don’t forget the fun paper straw too!
This is a swoon worthy shake my friends! Rich, thick, loaded with the flavors of ripe juicy raspberries, and hints of sweet white chocolate. It say’s “I love you” to your taste buds and tummy!
I can’t wait to make these fun shakes for my granddaughters! They just scream “FUN times ahead”! Wouldn’t your “littles” love this treat on Valentines?! Skip the tea party and go for the milkshake party!
A fun Family Valentines Dinner could include a heart shaped pizza and these fun milkshakes!
I hope the sweethearts at your Nest enjoy this luscious frozen treat! Two straws makes it the perfect “Norman Rockwell” lovers treat! (wink, wink)
