Unicorn Milkshake Recipe

Posted on June 01, 2017

Unicorn-anything is totally trending right now! Luckily, this unicorn party treat is so easy, it doesn’t require magical kitchen skills to create! This milkshake is 90% about the whimsical decorations. As long as you include plenty of embellishments, anything goes! Hello pink, blue, purple, cotton candy, and sprinkles!

For the actual shake part, we used vanilla bean ice cream and some fresh strawberries and raspberries.

The rest of the decor includes cotton candy, rock candy, whipped cream, and more sprinkles.

Zak’s Casino glasses are perfect for a retro-milkshake feel, and how can you beat Zak’s polka-dot straws for a unicorn shake?
