DIY Strawberry Christmas / Santas & Milkshake


Milkshake -- To make this milkshake you will need, strawberries, milk (or strawberry milk) and vanilla ice-cream (or strawberry ice-cream). Blend all of these ingredients together in a blender, I'm not really sure how you do this if you don't have one, sorry! We use the Kenwood Smoothie 2Go and I would really recommend it, great for smoothies and milkshakes.

Once you have blended it all together, put it in a glass or a cute little glass bottle (you can buy these here) and then top it off with squirty or whipped cream. I personally love prefer squirty cream but it really is up to you! As a finishing touch I normally sprinkle a bit of cocoa powder onto the top and add a straw. Voila you have your strawberry milkshake and not only does it look pretty, it also tastes fab!

Santas -- To make these adorable little Santa Strawberries (perfect for parties) you will need squirty cream/ whipped cream, strawberries (preferably large ones) and some small sweets to use for eyes, we used nerds. First cut turn the strawberries upside down and cut them in half horizontally. Next squirt some cream onto the bottom half of the strawberry and poke two sweets into the front of the cream. Green is cute to keep up the Christmassy feel.

After this place the lid, or should I say hat, carefully on top of the cream and squirt a bit more cream onto the point of the strawberry as a bobble. Now you have your cute little strawberry santa, repeat to create your own army. Note that these need to be kept relatively cool or the cream will start to melt, as we discovered, not a good look for santa.
