Easy Red Velvet Milkshake

  • Total time: 5 minutes
  • Servings: 1 milkshake

Rather than deciding between cake and ice cream, why not put the two together? Make a rich, creamy red velvet milkshake made with vanilla ice cream and frosted red velvet cake to celebrate Valentine’s Day (or just because).


  • 4 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 mini red velvet cupcakes or 1 slice of cake
  • 2 tbsp cream cheese


  • 1)

    Combine ice cream, milk, vanilla, cupcakes (frosting and all) and cream cheese in a blender and blend until smooth. Add more milk if needed to blend smoothly.

  • 2)

    Dip the top of a milkshake glass in the milkshake mixture, then cover with red velvet cake crumbs.

  • 3)

    Pour milkshake into the glass and top with whipped cream.


The key to making a great milkshake is simple: use good ice cream! High quality ice cream and an extra teaspoon of vanilla extract will make any milkshake better. Then, when you add red velvet cupcakes and a little cream cheese, you get this delicious, extra creamy red velvet milkshake recipe that is truly better than cake.
