Sprinkles, donuts, milkshakes, sugar … Do any of those sound like a bad way to spend an afternoon? We thought not. Our latest M.I.Y involves all of the above combined for the sweetest treat you can have this summer. This one is going to take a little bit of time, but anyone you make it for will not only be impressed by the presentation, but even more excited about the milkshake + donut combo.
2 pints of ice cream
2 cups of milk
1 Tbsp. of vanilla extract
2 Tbsp. of Honey
Milk Jars (We snagged ours at Ikea)
Squirt honey onto a plate. (Should be as wide as the opening of your cup) You’re going to use honey as the ‘binder’. Take your glasses and dip the rim in the honey.
Grab your bowl of sprinkles and dip the rimmed glasses inside and swirl around until they’re coated. To ensure they stick, place glasses in the freezer.
On to the milkshake! In your blender, combine the ice-cream, milk, vanilla extract and sugar. Blend! Depending on your preference for milkshakes, you may need to add more ice-cream if you like yours a little thicker – and milk if you like them a little thinner.
Once your milkshake is the right consistency, add in a squirt (or two, or three) of the strawberry syrup to give it a strawberry flavor, but most importantly – to make your milkshake pink.
Snag your sprinkle-coated glasses from the freezer and pour the milkshakes inside. Top with a straw (Target is our main-supplier of these cute paper straws) and a donut! Bon appetit!
These are for sure a decadent treat, so be prepared! But if you’re having a fun brunch with your besties, or lounging around the pool – This is the snack they'll remember you for.
