Cake Batter Milkshake

Where It All Began

I have always been in love with Cake Batter milkshakes from Cold Stone Creamery. The problem is, the closest Cold Stone is over an hour away. I looked online to see if there were any ways to make one at home. I came up with a ton of recipes on how to actually make my own ice cream. I don't have the time, patience or tools needed to do that. So instead I told all of my friends of my obsession in hopes of them knowing how to make this milkshake. Success! A friend had previously worked at a famous ice cream shop and told me their super easy secret recipe. Interested? Keep reading! (It's easy, I promise.)

Some Background on Ice Cream

Ancient civilizations have served ice for cold foods for thousands of years. The BBC reports that a frozen mixture of milk and rice was used in China around 200 BC. The Roman Emperor Nero (37–68 AD) had ice brought from the mountains and combined it with fruit toppings. These were some early chilled delicacies.

Arabs used milk as a major ingredient in the production of ice cream and sweetened it with sugar rather than fruit juices. It was flavored with rosewater, dried fruits and nuts.

History of the Milkshake

The first milkshakes in the 1880's were actually alcoholic drinks that were served as both a tonic and a drink.

By 1900 they were wholesome drinks made with flavored syrups.

In the early 1900s the milkshake was often asked for with ice cream.

In the 1930s they were very popular in malt shops.

The 1950s brought the vast popularity of the milkshake inplaces like diners, "burger joints" and soda fountains.

At this point there were various names for the milkshake including "frappes", "velvets," and "frosted drinks."

Today, people are looking for ways to create healthier, low-fat milkshakes.

There are also many variations of the milkshake being created every day by all sorts of people looking to create their own perfect treat.

How To Make It

Finally, an answer!

Here's the super easy recipe.

Take vanilla ice cream, add vanilla cake mix to it, add whatever else you normally do to make a milkshake (I usually just use milk and ice) and let the blender do the rest! Seriously, it tastes SO good.

FYI: Don't want a milkshake? Just add the cake mix to the ice cream and eat it that way. :)
