Chocolate Covered Strawberry Shake

Looking for a sweet treat that you don't have to bake for your Valentine? Why not try this Chocolate Covered Strawberry Shake? I found this recipe in Taste of Home. The recipe was inspired by Steak & Shakes version and tastes almost as good!


malt, steak and shake, valentine's day, recipe


Ingredients:

2/3 cup milk
2/3 cup strawberry ice cream
2/3 cup fresh strawberries, stems removed and hulled (you can also use frozen strawberries, but the fresh strawberries make it taste much better in my opinion)
2 tbsp hot fudge ice cream topping, warmed
whip cream and cherry for garnish


Directions:

In a blender, blend milk, ice cream and strawberries until smooth.
Pour the hot fudge topping into the bottom of a glass.
Fill glass with shake mixture.
Top with whipped cream and a cherry.
Immediately serve.

*For a healthier version, substitute with skim milk, reduced fat ice cream, and low fat hot fudge topping*

  5. I love anything pink so this will be on my list of treats to try out. Hubby loves banana splits so I might add a banana to this recipe!

    1. Great idea! My hubby loves bananas too. He even bought a stupid banana slicer that I had to roll my eyes at. I'll break it out next time and add bananas to his too :)

  6. It looks good!

    I've actually whipped up soft tofu and put it in with the ice cream. The kids never know the difference. Then I don't hear, "I'm hungry!" two minutes later. They are always hungry.
