Red Velvet Valentine's Day Milkshakes Dessert Recipe

Anyone else getting BLASTED with snow lately where they live?  We got over a foot in ONE day Wednesday!  After 3 rounds of shoveling very heavy snow, my body is spent today.  What a great workout, though 😉  Anyway, I feel like a 90 year old talking about the weather.  No Valentine’s Day is complete without some sort of red velvet recipe and I deserve a little dessert after yesterdays snowy workout.  Let’s face it – the red velvet dessert staple—whether in the form of cookies, brownies, pancakes, cakes or pies — provides the perfect red color to any February 14th dessert or snack.  If you need some inspiration for Valentine’s day dessert ideas, these Red Velvet Milkshakes will do the trick!  They take about 2 minutes to whip together and are so fun and delicious.  Not to mention so, soooo cute.

What are you doing for Valentine’s Day?  Mr. Wishes and I like to stay home and cook dinner together.  I’m not a fan of the “special” menus that most restaurants force you to order off of for the holiday.  Anyone else with me on that?  So if you’re staying in for Valentine’s Day, you can blend up a couple of these babies and have an adorable dessert ready in no time at all.  Enjoy and have a great weekend!  Stay warm!

    Staying home for sure! Hoping to make a yummy steak dinner this year and some sort of decadent dessert (ie: chocolate, chocolate, chocolate). Oh, and we always open a nice bottle of wine too!

    My husband and I stopped going out for Valentine’s Day about 10 years ago. It’s so much more fun (and romantic!) to make your own meal. This year, we plan on making homemade lobster ravioli and chocolate souffles. Yum!

      I’m glad you feel the same way! Lobster ravioli? I’m sure that’s better than any restaurant meal anyway!

    Red Velvet anything is a hit in my book. This snow is driving me nuts!

      I know! What the heck! Lol

    Those milkshakes are adorable! I’m not a fan of the special Valentine’s menus either… I am not sure what we’ll do since we usually have our date night on Sunday. I don’t feel up for anything big this year, haha, and I have a feeling that Wendy’s birthday (the day before) will distract us a bit. 🙂

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who doesn’t like the special menus! lol

    We don’t go out anymore on Valentine’s Day either – after a not-so-fun experience at one of our favorite restaurants who did a pre-set menu and didn’t have what I wanted. Boooooo. And what really made me mad was we called to ask if they did a pre-set menu and they said no! Lame : ) But this milkshake sounds awesome – I am all about anything red velvet.

    • February 11, 2014 at 4:26 PM #

      Yeah I find most restaurants do their special menus for Valentine’s – jacked up prices and limited options. No fun!

    We are getting snow right now but not a foot! I am not cut out for that much snow! This milkshake looks delicious!

    We’ve been extra cold and snowy this winter, too — but this week hasn’t been bad at all in terms of snow. This milkshake looks delicious – lovely for Valentine’s Day! Stay warm!

    • February 14, 2014 at 11:07 PM #

      You too!! Thanks!

  14. February 14, 2014 at 1:11 PM #

    This is so perfect for Valentine’s Day! We missed out on this storm thankfully, but we have had more than our fair share this winter. Spring can start any day!

    • February 14, 2014 at 11:05 PM #

      Amen to that!!

    Love this red velvet milkshake! We got more snow than I can ever remember getting in South Carolina. We ventured out today for the first time since Tuesday to get some groceries and that was the highlight of our Valentine’s Day. Hope you had a great one!

    We stayed in too! Actually, we went out for Indian buffet lunch and then kicked it at home for dinner. So glad that you’re staying safe and warm and milkshaked–the weather is crazy out there!
