Well hello and HAPPY Friday, friends!
It’s been a while since I’ve shared a recipe, so it’s about due time. Today’s recipe is so yummy and so simple to make. It’s the perfect treat for the 4th of July and for those hot summer days. Let’s make some yummy Patriotic Red Velvet Cake Shakes, shall we?
Box of Red Velvet Cake mix
1 cup water
1/4 cup oil
4 cups milk
vanilla ice cream
Here’s how to make it:
1. In a large mixing bowl, mix the cake mix, water, oil, and milk with a whisk. (We used vanilla almond milk and vanilla soy ice cream.)
2. Add the mixture and vanilla ice cream (as much as you want…the more you add the thicker the shake) to your blender or Magic Bullet and blend.
3. Pour into glasses and top with whip cream and blue sprinkles…and don’t forget a cute paper straw!
This recipe makes a LOT of shakes so be prepared to share. You can also store your mix (minus the ice cream) in the fridge for a couple of days.
This recipe is totally kid-friendly too. I made a “Birthday Cake” version using Funfetti Cake mix with the preschool cooking class I teach. In fact, my daughter helped me make the very shakes in the photos. We love to be in the kitchen making yummy treats.
Thanks for stopping by! Let m know if you try a cake mix shake!
Have a great night and I will see you back here tomorrow morning for another fun reveal of my daughter’s bedroom.
