I’ve been seeing these beautiful birthday cake martinis around and thought they looked so festive.

While I think a martini would do wonders for my kids (and me) at bedtime, I figured I would try to make something a little more kid-friendly.
This version is basically a vanilla milkshake with sprinkles.
To make, you will need:
-1 cup milk
-1 cup vanilla ice cream
-A couple ice cubes
-Colorful nonpareils or whatever sprinkles you have on hand
-1 Frozen banana (not necessary but i put it in to thicken it up and add a few nutrients)
-Plastic wine, champagne or other fun glasses
Ingredients amount will vary depending on the consistency you prefer.
Place items in a blender and blend until it is how you like it.
Meanwhile, pour some sprinkles in a shallow bowl. Coat the rim of your glass with a little bit of ice cream or honey and dip into the bowl of sprinkles until the rim is covered.
Pour your milkshake into the glass and you are ready to serve.
I recommend not filling the milkshake all the way to the top or only putting the sprinkles on the outside rim. Otherwise, you instantly get this dripping effect.
Although, it won’t matter either way. It’s colorful and fun and your kids will love it!
