Funfetti Cake Batter Milkshakes

shake 1
Whenever I think of the times that I have really had a craving for a rich, decadent dessert, they seem to coincide with a certain amount of laziness. There are the occasions when you feel proactive and want to create impressive delicacies, of course, but there are also plenty of times when you’re lounging on the couch with your laptop, lurking on people’s Facebook pages reviewing your stock portfolio and simply can’t be bothered to spend an hour in the kitchen.
In times like these, what are your options? Dive into that bowl of stale Halloween candy? Miss the next episode of 30 Rock C-Span Congress coverage? It is precisely times such as these that call for Funfetti Cake Batter Shakes—simple, delicious, and ready in three easy steps.

(1) Vanilla ice cream.

1/2 package Funfetti cake mix
2-3 cups vanilla ice cream
2-3 cups milk
In a blender, combine the cake mix, 2 cups vanilla ice cream, and 2 cups milk. Blend until well combined and adjust with more ice cream or more milk and blend until desired thickness is reached. Serve immediately.
Optional: Decorate the glasses by rubbing a thin layer of corn syrup on the rims and then dipping them in colorful sprinkles.
Makes 2 large servings or 4 regular servings.


  1. Wow...what a great idea! I'm thinking the cake mix helps the shake stay nice and thick instead of getting all melty. Genius! BTW...I'm having a great Biscoff Easter giveaway, so come check it out!

  3. Oh wow! I love the sprinkles round the rim. I wonder if we have funfetti here. Hmmmm.
