These over-the-top Circus Animal Cookies Milkshakes are a vanilla ice cream milkshake blended with cookies and a delicious pink frosting. The frosting also decorates the rim with whole Circus Animal Cookies attached. The milkshake is then topped with decadent whipped cream and rainbow sprinkles!
These milkshakes are so good! Plus, they’re perfect to serve as dessert for little get-togethers including small baby showers, bridal showers, slumber parties, etc. You don’t have to serve full-size versions, but can make little over-the-top mini milkshakes.
I use a blender to make all my milkshakes. My Ninja blender is my preferred blender of choice so if you’re in the market for a new blender, I highly recommend it!
I can’t say enough good things about this blender! It’s not super cheap and won’t fall apart like some $20-30 brands (like Hamilton Beach), but it also doesn’t cost an arm and a leg like a Vitamix.
Let’s talk ingredients. Obviously, you’ll need some Mother’s Circus Animal Cookies … but here’s a list of some of the other needed ingredients.
- Vanilla ice cream
- Mother’s Circus Animal Cookies
- Vanilla frosting: store-bought is fine!
- Pink food coloring
- Rainbow non-pareil sprinkles
I like to make my own homemade whipped cream for my over-the-top milkshakes. I find that homemade whipped cream is, well, tastier, but also stiffer so it will hold up longer if you’re prepping and serving multiple milkshakes. It also literally holds up the over-the-top garnishes I like to add to my milkshakes.
If you’re going to make you’re own homemade whipped cream, you’ll need the following ingredients:
Whipped Cream Ingredients:
- Heavy whipping cream
- Granulated sugar
- Vanilla extract
