Unicorn Milkshakes (Unicorn, Carnival, Rainbow, Candyland themes)

  • 10 oz strawberry-coconut ice cream (5 large scoops)

  • 1 cup strawberries fresh or frozen

  • ½ cup International Delight Creamer can substitute milk

  • ½ cup fruity miniature marshmallows

  • ¼ cup vanilla frosting

  • ½ cup assorted sprinkles

  • Whipped cream

  • Decorative toppings (lollipops, rock candy, wafer, cookies, sour rainbow belts, etc)

Combine the ice cream, strawberries, and White Chocolate Macadamia International Delight Creamer in a blender, and blend until smooth and creamy.

Snip the miniature marshmallows in half. Press the cut half of one marshmallow on the inside of a 10-oz glass, pressing firmly so that it sticks. Continue to add marshmallow “polka dots” inside the glass bottle. (You may use a BBQ stick if your fingers won’t allow you to put more dots.

Spread a thin layer of vanilla frosting around the top rim of each drinking bottle. Roll the frosting in sprinkles until the edge of the cup is entirely covered.

Divide the milkshake between the cups. Top each cup with whipped cream, and add a big pinch of sprinkles to the top of the whipped cream.

Add fun by topping colorful decorations like swirled lollipops, rock candy sticks, sour rainbow belts, wafer cookies, and unicorn straws.
