Best Raspberry Shake Recipe Ever

I heard a fact recently that doesn’t surprise me at all. My area of the country, the Twin Cities in Minnesota, is the leading market for raspberries (measured by consumption per household), with residents here enjoying 153% more raspberries than the national average! Why am I not surprised? because my family has always loved raspberries and they have been a part of our special moments and favorite foods ever since I can remember.

During the summer, raspberries were often the star of dessert at my grandparents house. My grandma would prepare them by sprinkling with sugar and letting them sit in the refrigerator, would turned them into an easy raspberry sauce, which we put over ice cream or a slice of poundcake.

Looking for the Best Raspberry Shake Recipe EVER? This is it! This cool, creamy concoction is made with fresh Driscoll's raspberries.

In our own house, raspberries were a summer staple too. The way my mind remembers it, Mom did most of the regular cooking for meals in our house. But when it came to treats, then Dad took over. He made the most delicious raspberry filled crepes! I always thought that crepes seemed like a fancy food, but he swore that they weren’t that hard to make. But, since Dad was a big ice cream fan, as well as a raspberry fan, he was even more likely to make us raspberry shakes. This is my version of Dad’s recipe, which just happens to be the best raspberry shake recipe ever.


Best Raspberry Shake Recipe Ever


3 cups reduced fat ice cream
1 cup milk (I use 1%)
1 package (6 ounces or 1 1/4 cups) Driscoll’s Raspberries


Place ice cream and milk in blender.
Blend until smooth.
Add raspberries to blender.
Blend on low speed for 10 seconds.
Pour into glasses and serve immediately.

While many kids love shakes, even more seem to love ice pops. Well, guess what? This recipe is super easy to turn into Raspberry Shake Freezer Pops! All you do is let the shake melt a bit after making (or start out with 1/2 cup extra milk for a more runny concoction) and then pour the shake mixture into an ice pop mold. Let freeze until hardened and then, voila! Yummy Raspberry Shake Freezer Pops for the kids. (Or the adults because really, who doesn’t love a homemade freezer pop?

    This sounds great! I have a bunch of berries frozen so this will be great! In winter I do buy fresh raspberries and Driscolls does have coupons out $.50 – $1, depending on your status level in their survey response panel. Just sign up and review the berries you bought (and kind of Driscolls berries).
