Doughnut Milkshake Delights!

My boyfriend is better than yours. I arrived back from work a few weeks ago, only to be ushered out of my kitchen while The Boy informed me that he was going to be whipping up me up a little pre-birthday treat.

If you're an active user of well, any social media, you likely witnessed people going a little bit crazy over a crazy new Nutella doughnut milkshake combo.

While I like a bar of Galaxy as much as the next girl, chocoloate flavoured things aren't exactly my favourite thing. And, my lovely boyfriend took this into account when he created this healthier (marginally), fruity alternative.

The great thing about these little milkshakes is that they are really super easy to make! And they are quick too - my boyfriend had done them within 10 mins (though this definitely didn't include the clean up!)

1. In a blender, add around 3 scoops of ice cream. It's really up to you what ice cream you choose, but ours was made just using simple vanilla. 

2. With this, add around 150ml of milk (though this will depend on the size of your receptacle). Generally, the consistency should be quite thick. 

3. Hold the jar at a 45 degree angle and squirt the strawberry sauce around the rim, as you turn it.

4. Add the blended mixture.

5. Push the doughnut onto the top, and decorate with fruit around the top of the jar. They work best with jam doughnuts, although on this occasion we used rings.

6. Put a straw through the doughnut into the mixture.


If you missed the original, check it out below. Personally, I think the strawberry variation is FAR better!
