Red Velvet Milkshake

Red Velvet Milkshake | Cooking on the Front Burner

TGIF with a totally kid friendly (and adult) Red Velvet Milkshake!  I've had this one in the vault for a bit and I'm pulling it out today because, well, I haven't been feeling up to par this week and haven't been up to doing a whole lot!  You may remember my post a couple days ago where I made muffins and it took two tries since I messed up the recipe the first time.  I originally thought I just had a bad cold but ended up going to our employee clinic and found I have pneumonia.  That is definitely a first for me on that one but I'm on the mends now with some antibiotic medications.  Luckily I have this recipe to share with you because right now I could definitely go for one of these!  It is cool, creamy, tasty and calling my name and hopefully yours too!

I'm kinda glad I know what I have - everyone has been talking about these colds that last about 2-3 weeks but something was nagging at me (maybe women's intuition) that it might be something more.  I'm hoping to feel back to myself in a couple days.  Ok, enough of this sickness talk!  Let's move onto recipes -  I have some recipes I want to make soon including a lemon cookie that I think would be perfect for Easter.  Stay tuned for that next week.

Speaking of Easter, I was thinking this shake could work for that.  Still make the shake per the recipe below but how about some light green, light yellow or light purple jimmies?  Then on the side you could add a colored peep!  And maybe if you are like me, you have enough colored straws to find the perfect one!  These would look pretty festive and be a great treat for the kiddos (and, oh yes, adults too!)

  1. Deb, These look scrumptious and I just love the shade of pink. Your photographs are always outstanding. I hope you're feeling better very soon. Pinned! Joan-My Cookie Clinic

  2. Oh how purrrrrdy!!! They look so elegant and romantic.

  3. I am so thankful my daughter has just gone to bed because I know this would be DEMANDED asap! Plus, mommy could enjoy one, too :)

  4. These are so fun, my daughter would love them. Not sure which she'd love more, the sprinkles or the pink milkshake.

    1. Everything is more fun with sprinkles, right?? LOL

  5. Red velvet is a favorite of mine but I have yet to have them in a milkshake! I need to change that with these gorgeous drinks!

  6. Oh goodness...what a perfect milkshake!

  7. This looks amazing! And the recipe seems so versatile, too. You could add any kind of cake mix or ice cream, right?

  8. Wow your drink looks so good! I'm now following you on social media! I co-host a blog party on Monday's called Cooking and Crafting with J & J Link Up at Julie's Lifestyle. I would love to have you share this drink recipe with us. Thanks and enjoy the week.
