Marshfield Ice Cream

DIY: Donut Freakshake

We’re sure you’ve seen this crazy trend about – in fact, Freakshakes are so large they’d be pretty hard to miss!

To give you a quick low-down, Freakshakes came over from Australia a couple of years ago, and they’ve been getting bigger and better ever since. A Freakshake is a basic milkshake topped with slices of cake, waffles, cookies, sweets, pretzels, abundances on whipped cream and sweet sauces, the list goes on… but we’re sure as long as you have the ice cream and a little bit of creativity, you can make up this trend in your own kitchens!

Down on the farm we decided to try our hand at making a few of our own ridiculous recipes. Don’t be afraid to stray away from our instructions; raid your sweet cupboard and let the kids go wild in the shops to make the shakes as crazy as possible. We regularly update our Pinterest page with the best recipes we can find, click here for more whacky inspiration.
