  • For 2 shakes:
  • 6 - 8 fresh strawberries (depending on size)
  • 4 large scoops vanilla ice cream
  • dab of milk to blend, if needed
  • 1 medium slice pound cake, homemade or store bought (or 4-6 shortbread cookies, broken)
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 Tablespoons graham cracker crumbs
  • Garnishes - 2 whole, stemmed strawberries and/or whipped cream



Step 1

Clean and hull the strawberries to be used in the shake; place in freezer until needed.

For the garnishes, make a 1/2-inch slit on the bottoms of two strawberries. Set aside.

Using the rim of your glasses for size, squirt a circle of honey on a small plate. On another small plate, spoon the graham cracker crumbs in a circle. Rim the glasses in the honey, then in the crumbs. Garnish each glass rim with a slit strawberry. Set aside.

Blend the cold strawberries and ice cream in a blender, adding a dab of milk if needed. Add the pound cake (or cookies); pulse a couple of times just to blend.

Pour into the garnished glasses and top with whipped cream and a few additional crumbs, if desired.

((NOTE--I overfilled one of these, the bottom of the strawberry should not touch the shake mixture.))
