How to make Easter Peeps Milkshake
This milkshake screams everything Easter and SPRING! Aren’t pastel colors the best?? They put me in such a cheery mood.
I bet you’re wondering how I made the milkshake green. No, it’s not green ice cream. It’s actually food coloring! (But green ice cream would be kinda neat to try… mint chocolate chip perhaps?)
I used almond milk for my milkshake but you can use any milk of your choice. As for the ice cream goes, I went with dairy-free vanilla. Feel free to substitute using regular vanilla ice cream or even another flavor if you prefer.
Step 1: Creating the frosted rim
The frosted rim is what makes this milkshake extra special. Not only does it jazz up the milkshake appearance-wise, but it’s also a tasty touch! It’s actually very simple to make. All you need to do is spread some white frosting on the rim of a glass and gently press your Easter sprinkles into the frosting.
*Tip: I recommend that you frost the rim before you add your blended milkshake since you will have a much easier time turning and handling the glass.
Step 2: Blending the ingredients
- All you need to do is add the ice cream, milk, and vanilla. Once that’s all blended together you can go ahead and add a couple drops of green food coloring and blend until the color is evenly dispersed through the drink.
- Now you can pour the blended contents into your frosted-rimmed glass and start adding all the toppings.
Step 3: Topping with peeps
It wouldn’t be a Peeps Milkshake without PEEPS! To keep them visible, I inserted them through a wooden skewer and arranged them in the glass. Use a pair of scissors to cut the skewers down to the appropriate height that will fit within your glass.
*Tip: If you don’t have wooden skewers, you could try to place the peeps on top of some whipped cream, but make sure you serve it right away as the peeps will start to sink to the bottom.
I then added my whip cream and finished it off with some sprinkles.
Ta-da! A Peeps Milkshake is born! Isn’t it just so festive?
Tips for making this drink
- Frost the rim of your glass first. This allows you to have better control over spreading the frosting and pressing in the sprinkles.
- Use green food coloring to liven up the milkshake. Add more drops depending on how vibrant you want the green coloring to be.
- You may need to adjust the milk to ice cream ratio depending on how thick you like the consistency of your milkshakes. Use more ice cream for a thicker milkshake and less for a thinner one.
- When assembling the milkshakes, use wooden skewers to allow the Peeps to sit upright above the whipped cream. Trim the wooden skewers with scissors if needed.
When to drink a peeps milkshake
Since there are a few not-so-good-for-you ingredients involved in this recipe, I tend to put this in the dessert category. However, if you want an extra special Easter treat, serve it for breakfast! If you can have cake for breakfast surely a milkshake will do. 🙂
