Um. I made you a boozy shake!

This past winter I teamed up with West Elm to bring you four summer fun boozy milkshakes – and now they’re here! Let me tell you… I drank this heavenly concoction back in February before I got pregnant and looking at these photos now… I’m just glad I got a sip. They are TOO good.

I’m rambled for years about my favorite milkshake from DQ – a hot fudge shake – and it truly is still the best. In fact we just had one last weekend (and a few years ago I made a bourbon version) and I can never get enough. For some reason, they are so much better than regular vanilla or chocolate shakes. Just so dang good. Hence: a coconut version!

A layer of hot fudge, an icy coconut shake, piles of whipped cream, toasted coconut and an extra chocolate drizzle. SOLD.

    Damn. It looks so gooooood! Wife is a sucker for fudge and coconut. I’m pretty sure she’d fall in love with me all over again for at least a week with this in her hand!

    I love the second picture. it led me to envision myself diving head first straight into that fudgy goodness. Those really sound amazing. Can’t remember the last time I had a boozy milkshake. I’m on it.

    I almost just shot cranberry juice out of my nose when I saw these. I need them… bet they wouldn’t burn as bad as the juice in near snorting accidents. And I bet they just taste way better!

    Hot fudge shakes are pretty good, but have you tried a DQ hot fudge malt? Oh baby! That’s the only thing I order when I go there. I have a feeling this boozy concoction is a million times better though.
