4th of July Milkshakes

I love a good Milkshake! I wish I had them more often. They are a total indulgent dessert for me. But this Red, White and Blue Patriotic Milkshake was my lunch! I so splurged! It was GREAT! 

This week, I'm celebrating all thing's 4th of July and these Milkshakes are a must!

This is just a plain Jane Vanilla ice cream shake, but I made it special for a 4th of July party. There WAS a white layer in the middle, but the red kinda took over and obliterated the middle layer.

You could add some extract to the layers to make them flavored if you want or just enjoy the vanilla goodness.

My tips to making this layered dessert is to make it quickly, pre-freeze the glasses, and put them into the freezer while making the different colors.
