Red Velvet Milkshake-who says you can only have red velvet in cake form!

Red Velvet Milkshake-who says you can only enjoy red velvet in cake form!

I know it’s winter time. I know some people in the north are freezing their butts off. I know some people find it crazy to want ice cream in the winter.

So just call me crazy.

Red Velvet Milkshake

There is never a wrong time of year for ice cream in my house. In the warmer months, we’re always making ice cream homemade. In the winter, it’s somehow too cold to make it so I’ll keep the freezer stocked with store bought. Usually just the basic chocolate and vanilla. And usually it’s the big, party size gallon tub.


I don’t mind the cheaper ice cream, we rarely just eat it as a bowl of plain ice cream anyway. It’s on top of a pie, with cake. Our favorite is with Apple Crisp. Or we’re turning it into a frozen drink. My older daughter adores Red Velvet Cake. She was the reason I made the Red Velvet Fudge.

It was a no brainer when I saw the open cake mix box in the pantry, to use it in a milkshake. We tried it with both vanilla ice cream and chocolate ice cream. Definitely use the chocolate!
