Ingredients

  • 6 large scoops vanilla ice cream
  • ¾ c milk
  • 1 c blueberries
  • 7 strawberries
  • whipped cream, optional

Instructions

  • In a blender combine blueberries, 2 scoops of ice cream and about 2-3 tablespoons of milk. Blend until smooth. Add more milk if too thick that the blender won't blend.
  • Pour into a glass and place in the freezer.
  • Add 2 scoops of vanilla and 2 tablespoons of milk to blender and blend until smooth. Again, adjust milk if needed and then pour into a glass and place in the freezer.
  • Combine 2 scoops of ice cream and 2-3 tablespoons of milk along with strawberries to blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a cup and freeze. After about 15-20 minutes, pour the "blue" shake evenly into serving cups. Pour the vanilla layer on top of that and then the strawberry. Top with whipped cream and enjoy!

Notes

  • You will want the shakes to be thick. If you make them too thin, the top layer will just fall right into the layer underneath. Trust me, I learned that lesson reallllly quick.
  • You can make these Red, White and Blue Milkshakes ahead of time and then pull them from the freezer and top with whipped cream when you are ready. Just let them thaw for a bit or eat them with a spoon.
