Best For: Playing it cool on a hot summer day!
Shout-out to whoever thought to blend a cookie in a milkshake.
Was it Dairy Queen with the Blizzard?
I’m not entirely sure who came up with the idea, but this Thick Cherry Milkshake topped with a slice of cherry pie is a riff on that perfect summer dessert.
The slice of pie is purely optional…I love how this milkshake tastes on its own.
But if you do opt for the pie, it’s WAY over the top – in a good way! : )
Super-Thick Cherry Pie Milkshake
Makes: 1 awesome milkshake Prep Time: 5 to 10 minutes Blend Time: 1 minute
Open Printable Recipe
1/2 cup frozen cherries, with pits removed (or use whatever berry you have)
1/3 cup milk
1 healthy scoop of vanilla ice cream (or use frozen yogurt)
1/2 banana (frozen is better)
1/2 tsp liquid honey
1/4 tsp. vanilla
small slice of cherry pie to garnish : )
To make the milkshake, blend the cherries, milk, ice cream, banana, honey and vanilla in a blender until it’s smooth.
To put this milkshake OVER THE TOP, crumble the slice of cherry pie and gently set it on top of the milkshake…looks good doesn’t it?!!! You’ll notice some of the pie will sink into the milkshake, but that’s okay – you’ll find those sweet pieces of cherry pie treasure with each spoonful. Giddy up!!!
