Who does not love ice cream and M&M’s?  To kick up this easy M&M’s easy milkshake, I added some vanilla frosting with M&M’s to decorated the outside of the glass.

How to make this M&M’s easy milkshake?

Celebrate summer with this easy milkshake.  To decorate the glass, I added vanilla frosting about an inch around the top of the glass and stuck patriotic M&M’s to the frosting.  I blended M&M’s to vanilla ice cream and a little milk.  Top everything off with whipped topping and lots of red and blue sprinkles.  This easy milkshake is fun to make and delicious. Whip one up for your family to enjoy this summer.

It is no secret around my house that I love candy.

It seems like all my desserts involve some sort of candy, including this easy milkshake made with lots of M&M’s.  If you are a candy fan too, be sure to check out some of my other desserts with candy in them below.

Add Frosting Around The Glass

Another thing I love is the frosting!  I am even a big fan of can frosting, which is why I used it in this easy milkshake.  Can frosting is super convenient and is always a staple in my pantry.  The M&M’s and vanilla frosting are fantastic together.

My Son, Caleb, loves M & M Milkshakes

My special needs son, Caleb, is a man of few words, but he knows what he likes.  When ordering shakes, flurries, blasts, or even blizzards, he always orders M&M’s.   We simply ask him if he wants one, and he lets us know quickly he would love an M&M’s ice cream.  So, I have promised Caleb for a long time that I would make him an M&M milkshake.  He was excited when I gave him this treat.  His eyes were wide opened.  I am pretty sure this easy ice cream filled with M&M’s was even more beautiful and tasty than all his other favorites.

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla


  • Using an electric mixer, whip the heavy cream and sugar until on high.  Add in the vanilla.
  • When you lift the beaters up, the whipped cream should stick to the beaters.  Stop mixing at this point.  If you keep mixing the whipped cream will turn into butter.


If you are not using the whipping topping right away, whip in 2 teaspoons of cornstarch.  The cornstarch will stabilize the mixture so it will not go flat on you.  This is a hack to use when piping whipping topping on dessert too.
