Remember the days when you'd bring a Valentine's Day card to everyone in your class? And there would usually be a small piece of chocolate or a lollipop or candy… after school on Valentine’s Day my family would head home and find balloons, treats, and everything PINK! For dessert that night we’d whip up strawberry or raspberry milkshakes and a part of me would look forward to them all year ‘round.
This year, we know Valentine’s Day looks a bit different than it did back in the 90s. For one, there aren’t a lot of opportunities to share 30+ treats with the entire class. For another, most of us are celebrating our loves from afar. Still, we wanted to recreate a special treat with a bit of added marshmallow, and a whole lot of nostalgia.
Pro tip: using frozen fruit keeps your milkshake from being too “watered down” by ice, and we love the extra boost of strawberry flavor with the addition of strawberry ice cream. Feel free to use vanilla ice cream for a lighter pink/lighter strawberry flavor.
YOU WILL NEED:
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- ¼ cup milk
- 4 scoops strawberry ice cream
- 1 scoop Vanilla Ooey Marshmallow Goodness (OMG)
- Whipped cream or extra OMG for topping
- Heart-Shaped Marshmallows
- In a blender, add frozen strawberries, milk, ice cream and OMG. Blend until smooth – the strawberries will chill the milkshake but add a small scoop of ice and pulse as needed until the milkshake is thin enough to pour.
- Pour into sundae cups, top with whipped cream or an extra scoop of OMG. Top with a heart-shaped marshmallow.
This easy recipe can be replicated anytime you’re in an extra PINK mood. You can also easily double or triple the recipe with a bit more ice cream and a splash of milk. Dairy-Free? No problem. This recipe can be made with dairy-alternative milk and ice cream. Toss in 2oz of your favorite liquor (we like Strawberry or Whipped Cream vodka) for a boozy milkshake.
Finally, remember that no matter the circumstances, it’s always a good idea to treat yourself on Valentine’s Day. :)
