Over The Top Orange Creamsicle Milkshake
Summer is here and that means it’s time for cool treats. You will notice that I don’t post a bunch of dessert recipes, and that’s simply because I love dessert a bit too much 😉 I have a serious sweet tooth, so if I am going to make dessert, it’s going to be epic or lower in fat. Today, I decided to go with epic. What better way to celebrate summer than with an over the top orange creamsicle milkshake?! Actually, I consider this work of art a FREAKSHAKE.
You have seen these right? Freakshakes are all the rage right now, you can find them in restaurants, dessert shops, all over town! In fact, the last time I was in St. Augustine, we stood in line for 30 minutes (which was one of the smaller lines I have seen) so that the kids could get a Freakshake, this ice cream parlor ONLY serves these Freakshake Masterpieces! I will tell ya that it’s a lot cheaper and a lot more fun to make one of these babies at home, I mean who doesn’t want to get messy in the kitchen with ice cream, whipped cream and all sorts of fun toppings?!
The first thing you need to make your Freakshake is a glass, I recommend one with a handle so that when you go to pick it up you don’t make your hands a sticky mess. Because these babies are messy, you are going to have ice cream and topping goodness dripping down the side. Now if you are thinking, why the heck would I want that mess in my house…the answer is simple…just LOOK at that milkshake! Doesn’t it look fun?! Can you imagine serving up this Orange Creamsicle Milkshake to the kids? They would be SO excited! How about making them for your next summer party? Guests could add their own toppings! Trust me folks, these are gonna be a hit with no matter who you serve them to, even if it’s just to you 😉
Orange Creamsicle is by far one of my favorite summertime flavors, so when I saw that Voortman Bakery had Orange Creme Wafers (baked with REAL oranges and no artificial color or flavors and no high-fructose corn syrup!), I knew that an Orange Creamsicle Milkshake was going to be in order, and it was going to be epic.
Now that you have the cool glass and Voortman Bakery Orange Creme Wafers, it’s time to build your epic Freakshake.
For the Orange Creamsicle Milkshake you will need:
Vanilla ice cream
For the Orange Creamsicle Milkshake toppings you will need:
Voortman Bakery Orange Creme Wafers
White Chocolate Candy Melts
Orange Candy Melts
Orange Slices if desired
Now that you have everything you need, let’s build your Orange Creamsicle Freakshake. In a blender, combine orange sorbet, vanilla ice cream, milk and vanilla extract. Blend until smooth.
Coat the edge and sides of glass in melted white chocolate. Drizzle on some of the melted orange candy melts. Add in some sprinkles to the melted chocolate. Fill the decorated glass with the milkshake. Top with a scoop of orange sorbet, top with whipped cream, stick in as many Voortman Bakery Orange Creme Wafers as you can, finally top with more sprinkles and an orange slice if you would like. Serve with extra Voortman Bakery Orange Creme Wafers. We liked dipping a few extra wafers into the milkshake as we were eating it.
