Love Potion

It’s got a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? Love Potion. This is a fun milkshake you can make for your kids or your significant other for Valentine’s Day. You can’t really tell from the picture, but it’s a two-tone milkshake. You need strawberry ice cream and vanilla ice cream to make milkshakes out of each flavor. Make one thicker than the other and fill your glass alternating the flavors. That’s it!

You will get a delicate pink tone swirled in with the white from the vanilla shake, but you won’t get really defined layers here, unless you want to try mixing strawberry or raspberry sherbet in instead of strawberry milkshake. Give it a quick go in your blender with a bit of milk (or water to keep the vibrant color.) Either way, make sure one flavor is thicker than the other so you can more or less layer them. The recipes we used are for one serving, so you can easily double or multiply them to make more.
