Strawberry Milkshake for Valentine’s Day


Serves 2 Shakes
  • 1 ½ cup strawberry ice cream
  • 1-cup milk
  • 3 oz. Champagne or sparkling wine
  • 4 tables strawberry syrup
  • 4 tablespoons marshmallow cream
  • 8 strawberries
  • 4 sprigs mint


  • ½ cup whipping cream
  • 1-tablespoon powder sugar

Chocolate Strawberries:

  • ½ cup dark Chocolate for dipping
  • ½ cup white chocolate for dipping
  • 4 large strawberries with stem.
  • ½ bottle Champagne rose
  • 2 each red roses


Preparation: Chocolate Strawberries

Melt the white chocolate in a water bath or microwave. Dip the stem strawberries ¾ high into the chocolate and gently display them on a non-stick pan, let them cool off.

Melt the dark chocolate using a water bath or microwave and dip the strawberries by angling them on both sides. Put them back on a non-stick pam and let cool.

Chantilly: Using an electric mixer beat the cream and sugar together until a nice, almost firm consistency. Transfer the whipped cream in pastry bag with a star tip. Refrigerate until ready to use.


Using a blender, transfer the strawberry ice cream into the cup; add the milk, 6 strawberries, 1 tablespoon of strawberry syrup.

Blend until creamy and very smooth. At the last moment add  3 oz. of Champagne

Decorate attractively the glasses with strawberry syrup and marshmallow cream.

Divide the shake mix between the 2 glasses. Decorate the top generously with whip cream, drizzle with some remaining melted dark chocolate. Garnish with a strawberry and mint leaves. I do recommend serving the milkshakes with a straw and an ice teaspoon!

Serve with the remaining Champagne using 2 flutes, the chocolate stem strawberries followed by the roses.
