Mini Red Velvet Milkshakes for Valentine’s Day!
Whip up red velvet milkshakes for the perfect Valentine’s Day treat!
Red velvet is perfect for Valentine’s day because (a) it tastes amazing and (b) hello! it’s red! So, I decided to turn one of my favorite flavors into a MILKSHAKE! Red velvet milkshakes to be exact. Sip one with your sweetie on February 14th or serve up mini versions of this treat at a Valentine’s Party!
You could use mini shooter glasses or cordial tasting glasses (like I used) for these red velvet milkshakes. They’re REALLY easy to make and seriously delish. I topped mine with little heart sprinkles (you could use any sprinkle you want!).
Valentine’s Day is the perfect holiday to invite friends over, watch a fun romantic comedy, and set up a milkshake bar! You know, like an ice cream sundae bar? But exclusively for milkshakes. All the fixings. Some cute straws. All ready!
I always seem to gravitate towards anything “Red velvet” flavored so naturally these red velvet milkshakes are one of my favorite treats. It certainly doesn’t have to be Valentine’s Day to enjoy them.
Red Velvet Milkshakes
- 1 cup Vanilla Ice Cream
- 3 tablespoons Red Velvet Cake Mix
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1/2 cup milk
- Blend all ingredients together until smooth. Add more or less red velvet cake mix to liking (will alter color and flavor). Also try cake batter flavored ice cream for a more "cake-like" flavor!
Hope you enjoy these red velvet milkshakes! We’ll be sharing more Valentine’s party ideas & sweet recipes so check back soon!

This is so so so cute! How adorable and what a great idea for Valentine’s day!!! Thanks for sharing Courtney!
Stopping by for some V-day inspiration! I absolutely adore these milkshakes and can’t wait to surprise the boys with them. xoxo
Thanks for the sweet comment Amy!
Dumb question – but you blend everything but the icecream?
Oops I think my comment didn’t go under your question – blend everything together including the ice cream!
Hi Julie! No dumb questions! I put everything into the blender at the same time (including the ice cream) and then blended.
Thank you for the great recipe! Fantastic blog by the way! I’ve included this recipe in my weekly roundup of useful sites at http://www.doomestic.com I look forward to making these on Thursday!
Question: do you have to actually make and prepare the cake mix, as if you were making the cake using the directions on the cake mix box, then put the prepared cake batter in? Or just simply 3 table spoons of the cake mix itself ?
It says mix, not cake.
Hey Courtney! I made these last night for my boyfriend and I and they were fantastic! We both loved them. Congrats on all your success with your blog and thanks for all the cute ideas! Hope you are doing well!

Can I make hot chocolate if I melt the Ice cream?
You should not use raw Flour in a recipe. Somes could be really sick with e.coli.
