Taste the rainbow

I’m now in full swing with the Kilner Kraze posts and it’s time for another feature. So first off we’ve done an alcoholic drink that looks and taste greats in your mug, so now its time for a refreshing cold drink.

Summer may be over, but the sweet milkshake saga is still in full flow across the UK. If you haven’t tried a milkshake complete with your favourite chocolaty or sweet treat, where have you been?! If you’ve missed out on the splendour of the sweet milkshakes or maybe you just want to try your own, here’s a look at how, and of course it’ll look great in your Kilner mug!

My choice of milkshake is the Skittle Rainbow, perfect if you’ve got a sweet tooth and tastes brilliant in the warm weather, but tastes just as good wrapped up in a quilt with a hot water bottle. To make a Skittle milkshake, you will need:

  • Ice
  • Skittles (as many as you can stand)
  • Ice-cream 3 scoops (vanilla or Cornish works best)
  • Milk to top
Just a few simple steps, of throwing the ingredients in and letting the blender do the hard work

Put some ice, the ice-cream and skittles in a blender and pulse through until the skittles and ice-cream have started to break down, then add milk (enough to fill your glass) and continue to blend until it reaches a smooth and milkshake-esque texture. That’ it! If you want to make it look fancy and present to guests, coat the inside of your glass with strawberry ice-cream sauce in a spiralled pattern, pour in your milkshake creation and finish with some cream and sauce, and maybe a few more skittles for good measure.

As always, you can make an alternative, just swap the skittles for your favourite confectionary treat and give it a go. Cheap, and super easy to make, resulting in a fantastic refreshing drink perfect all year round.

Enjoy.
