Dilemma! What do you do with all the leftover food from Easter? Solution! Make a boozy milkshake! I am currently obsessed with boozy milkshakes and this combo is amazing. The spiciness from the carrot cake blends so well with the bourbon! I honestly could not believe how good, no how AWESOME this milkshake turned out.

I ended up serving small glasses of this concoction to my guests for a boozy dessert yesterday. We had so much carrot cake left over from a baby shower on Saturday that I came up with this recipe! What is so tasty about this is the cream cheese icing in the shake! If this doesn’t make your day fabulous I don’t know what will!

Recipe: Carrot Cake Bourbon Shake


  • 2 ounces of bourbon
  • 4 scoops of vanilla bean ice cream (one saved to add as a garnish)
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • ½ cup of chopped up carrot cake plus more for garnish

Garnish: chopped carrot cake


  • In a blender combine bourbon, ice cream, milk, and carrot cake
  • Blend until desired consistency
  • Note: add more ice cream if mixture is too thin or more milk if it is too thick
  • Pour blended mixture into serving glass
  • Top with additional ice cream scoop

Serves: 1
