Life with kids can be busy so we make it a priority to set aside some time each week to connect and have fun as a family as a family. Tonight before our family game night we decided to make some milkshakes. I was telling the girls that February 16th Dairyland celebrates it’s 100th anniversary! The girls made some jokes about not wanting to use 100 year old milk for their milkshakes. Haha! After the giggling slowed down, we agreed that it would be fun to make Birthday Cake Milkshakes! Whoa, they sure turned out amazing. My 11 year old said that is what she wants for her next birthday party! I think I may just want them for my next birthday too!
I wish you all could taste this delicious birthday cake milkshake through the screen, but since technology is not there yet, I’ve included my recipe as the next best thing!
- 2 cups vanilla ice cream
- 1 cup dairyland 3.25% milk
- ¼ cup white cake mix
- 2 tbsp whipped icing
- Whipped cream
- Chocolate Sauce
- Put the vanilla ice cream, milk, cake mix and 1 tbsp icing into a blender and mix until it is like a milkshake.
- On the rim of a glass spread the icing and cover with sprinkles.
- Pour the milkshake into the glass and top with whipped cream, chocolate sauce and a cherry.
I remember growing up that there was nothing better than dipping my moms freshly baked chocolate chip cookies into a glass of milk. There couldn’t be a better after school snack than that! Through the years Dairyland has changed it’s packaging and to celebrate their 100th anniversary, Dairyland is bringing back a classic vintage style with their limited edition logo and milk carton designs. I have to admit that I love the packaging! You too can celebrate these vintage designs and Dairyland’s 100th anniversary with fun contests on Dairyland’s Facebook Page!
