A creamy and ultra-decadent cake batter milkshake to help you celebrate your "very merry unbirthday" anytime you want! Only three ingredients, plus an option to make this delicious cake batter shake boozy!
Alright, for the longest time, I said I wouldn't use boxed cake mix in any of my recipes. And I resisted for two and a half years. I even considered making my own cake mix, but that isn't the same because it won't have that buttery taste, or that familiar imitation vanilla flavor.
Finally, after having my little cousin (who just turned 10 recently) beg me for a week straight to make him cake batter favored things, I caved and made him this cake batter milkshake. (For my daughter who I don't let drink milkshakes, had my birthday cake smoothie instead).
I have to admit, I did miss boxed cake mix. I really missed it. I was surprised at how much I actually missed it. Maybe this blog is going in a new direction..... Naaaaaah! But it was a really nice treat to have and tide me over for a while!
I loved how thick and delectable the cake batter made the vanilla milkshake base. I wanted to have another glass the second I was finished my first! But I held off because I also had cake that day too. Shameful? Yes. Ashamed? Not one bit.
You don't have to be like me though because this cake batter milkshake is enough to satisfy most normal people who don't basically live off dessert. It's sweet and satisfying and hits all the right spots. You can also get a little fun with it too by making it boozy.
Obviously I didn't give the impressionable 1 year old a boozy milkshake, but you better believe I added a bit of something extra to mine! I recommend the whipped cream flavored vodka, or even the cake flavored one if you can get your hands on it! I don't see that flavor around as often as the whipped cream. Of you can go for unflavored vodka.
I like to keep this blog more or less a happy place. I don't like to get into world events or anything like that here because when you are looking for a cake batter milkshake, you are probably not interested in getting into any of that, and I get it. Me too. Me freaking too, friend.
I just want to say this. The only way people should be divided is people who like cake batter milkshakes, and people who don't. And the only disputes we should have would be to put sprinkles in the milkshake, or on top. Come on, everyone. let's just remember to love each other!
And that's it. I won't get into it anymore. I am choosing to keep my piece of internet happy and your bellies full!
Eat on and smile, loves!
