I'm so excited for sunny weather, I means it's milkshake weather! Let's get all our favorite flavors, put them out on the table and call it a DIY milkshake bar. Everyone can pick their favorite flavor combinations, top their shake however they'd like and we can sip our sweet treats together out in the sunshine. The best thing about setting up this buffet of flavors is that you can customize a treat for each person. A basic milkshake recipe is all you need, just change out the ice cream flavor and add-ins. I call that a win – can we have ice cream first and dinner later?
DIY Milkshake Bar
If you're going to make a milkshake, you've got to start with great tasting, creamy ice cream. Blue Bunny® is a goto ice cream brand in our house. The flavors are amazing and the ice cream blends really well. You could start with classic vanilla or get a little crazy and start off with one of the Blue Bunny® original flavors.

Blue Bunny® Bunny Snacks™ are a completely new treat, ice cream in single serve, bite-sized, portions. They are available in 4 scrumptious flavors: Salted Caramel Pretzel, Chocolate Vanilla Twist, Chocolate Chip Cookie and Cookies ‘N Cream. I love the Chocolate Vanilla Twist, they're like a little ice cream sandwich.. mmmmm, yum!

Let's Make a milkshake
All you need for a milkshake is ice cream and milk. Really, you could even fake it and let the ice cream melt in the glass and call it a milkshake. However, for a really good milkshake, you need ice cream, milk and your favorite mix in flavors. You can use a variety of ice creams, candies, cookies and fruits. This recipe uses a new product from Blue Bunny® to add extra flavor, surprise textures and pretty add-ins. These Bunny Snacks are delicious and easy to add into your milkshake goodness. Check it out.
- Scoop a few spoonfuls of ice cream into the blender.
- Add milk until it covers half the ice cream.
- Add in extra flavors and blend well.
- Pour into a milkshake glass.
- Top with whipped cream and your favorite Blue Bunny® Bunny Snacks™.
- Alternatively, you can blend in a single Blue Bunny® Bunny Snacks™ to add an extra bit of yummy flavor to your custom milkshake.
- My favorite flavor combo is Blue Bunny® Mint Cookie Crunch combined with Blue Bunny® Bunny Snacks™ Chocolate Vanilla Twist. The cookies in the Bunny snacks are soft with a tiny bit of crunch so they add some extra delicious texture to the milkshake.
You can mix and match all kinds of yummy flavors. I'd love to hear what you come up with!
The new 2017 lineup of ice cream flavors and treats from Blue Bunny® look amazing! I'm a bit biased, I love me a good mint ice cream and this Blue Bunny® Mint Cookie Crunch is fabulous! There's little chocolate balls of crunchy goodness, it's a fun twist on a classic flavor.
