Forget cake and ice cream for your next party, try this four ingredient homemade birthday cake milkshake recipe instead!
The days are long, but the years are short. When you’re in the thick of parenting littles, this quote has often given me the motivation to power through with a happy spirit.
Two weeks ago, my youngest turned 5 years old. FIVE. How is that even possible?! Where does the time go?
Her entire existence has pretty much been captured on this blog. From the time I found out, to the at home gender prediction tests, weekly progesterone shots, and her premature birth at 36 weeks until now. These five years have been so full but at the same time have gone by way too quickly.
While she’s spent her entire life a staple on this blog, not all of her birthdays have even made it on here. The rainbow cupcake recipe from her first birthday party is, but not the Frozen party we threw last year and that amazing recipe.
Truth be told, she likes cake and ice cream just fine but given the opportunity, she’d rather be drinking than eating. So I whipped up this homemade birthday cake milkshake recipe in her honor and for those kids (or adults) that want to celebrate a little differently on their special day!
You still get all the flavor of a birthday cake, the creaminess of ice cream but less mess and it’s so easy! And with only four ingredients, this birthday cake milkshake recipe is perfect for a fast, easy, yet special dessert!
- 1 cup milk
- 4 scoops vanilla ice cream
- ¼ cup vanilla cake mix
- Whipped cream for topping
- Sprinkles, optional
- Combine all the ingredients (except for the whipped cream) in a blender and blend on medium until smooth and creamy.
- Top with whipped cream and sprinkles.
