Mini Treat Sized Kids Chocolate Sprinkle Milkshake

Posted on July 6, 2017 in Ambassador/ Recipes/ Sponsored

Summer means delicious treats that are frozen! One of those delicious treats I’ve been making for several years for my kids is Sprinkle Milkshakes! I make big batches, and my kids just love them! When anyone ever mentions milkshake they immediately think of this delicious sprinkle shake, and of course, I have to make it!

For these milkshakes, I try to make sure they as healthy as a milkshake can be. That is why I don’t use normal ice cream in these, but I use the ice cream I had to eat while pregnant and having gestational diabetes. It tastes the exact same, and it’s delicious!

Adding in some fresh strawberries would be a delicious option, as well as on the side of the cup! We’ve done it a few times and it’s extremely tasty, we all know how good strawberry and chocolate go together. Nesquik is known as “the fun way to get your child to drink more milk”; syrup is fortified with iron, powder is fortified with iron and vitamins A, B, and C.



  1. We used the whole 1L of ice cream as it’s very small and I make enough for all the kids at once. Place all the ice cream in a blender, add 4 tablespoons of Nesquik and blend well
  2. Add milk until reaching the desired consistency you prefer (my kids like it a little more runny than thick)
  3. Once desired consistency is reached put 2 tablespoons of Nesquik syrup on a plate. Dip rim of small cups or jars (we used mini mason jars!) and roll the rims in the syrup
  4. Dip the rims and roll in sprinkles, and then get a spoon and spoon in the milkshake. (this avoids lots of sprinkles in the shake)

This recipe yields 4 mini mason jars. They can be found in packs of 4 at the dollar store! Aren’t they really cute? They make for fun backyard treats, or after dinner. They are also small enough that I don’t feel guilty about the kids indulging in them once in a while! They are cold, refreshing and really tasty!

When it comes to indulgences for kids we always make a huge batch and portion out accordingly. The kids think the little mason jars are really neat because — 1. They are glass! Usually, they are stuck with cups that are a little bigger but plastic so this makes them feel a bit special, and 2. Mason jars! They are so cute.

There are so many different ways to make milkshakes but I find less is more, and that’s why we use this recipe and it has the flavor we all desire when it comes to our delicious milkshakes!


Do you have a favorite indulgence you like to have in the summertime?

    You make a great treat and make it the healthy way. Kids of all ages and parents will love that shake. I need to get the lactose free ice cream.

    Milkshakes are always in indulgence for me and these look so good. The mason jars are so cute and I love the sprinkle edging x

    These look super yummy. As a kid I would’ve loved these. My son dislikes chocolate milk. All for me though lol.

    Those are super cute. I really appreciate the size. Having been away from sugar for four months, I realize that we only need a tiny bit to celebrate with.

    That looks like such a cute and fun treat! I bet my kids would be all over making these! We’ll have to try these out this summer.

    I love how cute they look. Why is everything small instantly cuter? I need to make these with my son, he would have fun in the kitchen putting them together.

    I love a milkshake in the summer. It’s so refreshing and a great way to enjoy ice cream in the hot summer sun.

    I want to have this recipe too and so soon, I’ll be doing this. It’s very timely for the season and I bet, not only my child would be loving this but the whole family including the grand parents.

    I had been into Mason jars the past months. And these mini Mason jars are just so lovely for this very colorful milkshake. I admire your selection of ingredients, the no sugar vanilla ice cream is really good and Nesquik will take charge of the rest.

    OH MY GOSH this is such a cute idea!! And I love that they are mini sized–great for kids, or those of us who are counting calories but still want a little treat ;-)
