Donut Milkshake Recipe

I love playing around with new recipes, sometimes I pull out a bunch of ingredients from the fridge not really knowing how my recipe will turn out. I start with an idea and let it turn into its own recipe or craft. It's my creative process.
This donut milkshake started with leftover donuts we had from breakfast this morning. Sometimes my boys eat 1 donut and other mornings they want 300, so I try to buy extra donuts to avoid hungry kiddos.
You could even use donuts you have saved in your freezer! What a great way to use leftovers.

You will need:
> 1 donut of any flavor, I used sprinkled because it's what I had, but my next flavor will be apple fritter.
> 1 teaspoon milk
> About 2 cups vanilla ice cream

1. Cut your donut into small pieces.

2. Add all your ingredients to your blender or food processor and mix until smooth. You can adjust the amount of milk or ice cream to fit how smooth or thick you want your shake. I was able to drink my shake through a straw with the measurements listed above.

3. Enjoy!

Breakfast for dessert, I like it.

My kiddos do the same thing - some day they eat a TON of donuts, others just one. I'd never thought of freezing them:) The shake looks GREAT - thanks for sharing! -Lindsey
