Milkshakes! Birthday Cake & Sinful Mocha

I absolutely adore milkshakes.

And since Chris (aka Mr Picky) and I can never agree on what we want, I ended up making two different kinds of milkshakes.

They are both super easy to make, take no time and need only a few simple ingredients.

5 mins from now, you can be sipping on one of these too :)

Alright, so for myself I made a really good birthday cake milkshake.

And it totally tasted like birthday cake :)

It was rich yet light, the sprinkles gave it a little bit of a crunch and the whipped cream on top just tied everything together!

For a second there I forgot that it’s not really my birthday and was expecting presents, but was quickly reminded of the reality…

Chris wanted something with chocolate… of course.

So I created a delicious chocolate milkshake with a hint of instant coffee and caramel and he really liked it :)

As I knew he would.

He also said it tasted like chocolate cake.

Which was not the point but whatever.

And by the way have you tried the new prime rib with hollandaise sauce sandwich from Quizznos?

Omg I’m like obsessed! It’s soo delish!!!

It has a lot of meat, double the cheese, the sauce has a nice tang and some saute mushrooms! Get it on a rosemary parmesan bread!

I’m telling you, it’s the (I can’t believe I just said that!)

And now about the milkshakes :)
