Delicious creamy vanilla milkshake with a cherry on the top that’s quick to make.

Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 2-3 minutes
Serves: 2

Creamy Vanilla Milkshake


1/3 of a cup of rainbow sprinkles
¼ cup of mini-chocolate chips*
3 cups of vanilla ice cream
1 teaspoon of real vanilla extract
1/3 cups of whole milk**

For Garnish:

Whipped cream
Rainbow sprinkles
Maraschino cherries

*You can use full-size chocolate chips but will take a little longer to melt. Use additional chocolate chips if not using a ramekin

**Plus extra to achieve the desired consistency, if required.

  1. Pour rainbow sprinkles onto a shallow plate. Place a *small ramekin, topside down, inside a small bowl wide enough to fit the top of each serving glass, as shown.
  2. Pour the mini-chocolate chips around the ramekin. (If unavailable, add one-half cup chocolate chips directly to the bowl.). Microwave on 50% power just until the chips melt, approximately 2-3 minutes. Check after 90 seconds to determine total microwave time.
  3. Remove from microwave and carefully break up any remaining solid pieces of chocolate with a fork. Dip the tops of each glass into the melted chocolate, and then roll the chocolate-coated edge in the rainbow sprinkles. Roll each glass edge until uniformly coated. Turn upright and set aside to dry.  
  4. Add the ice cream, vanilla extract, and milk to a blender and blend until smooth. Add a little additional milk to reach the desired consistency, if desired.
  5. To serve, pour the milkshake into the prepared glasses and top with whipped cream, additional sprinkles, and a maraschino cherry. Enjoy!

Tip: Corn syrup can be used in lieu of melted chocolate to create the sprinkle rims if desired.
