TASTE: Easter chocolate treats in a glass
PROS: Super quick and easy to make
CONS: Super quick and easy to drink
Easter isn’t far away and as always Easter chocolate has been on the shop shelves since Boxing Day.
It might seem to some that that’s far, far too early. But my Mini Egg addicted sweet tooth can’t get enough of it. From Mini Egg cookies, to Mini Egg brownie tart, to Easter egg cheesecake and more, if I can get Mini Eggs into an Easter recipe you bet I will.
So with all of those recipes firmly in the bag, the next place for me to go was to whip those delicious shell-coated chocolate eggs into a smooth and creamy milkshake.
I mean, can you think of anything better?
Here’s the low-down… vanilla ice cream blitzed with milk and a good helping of Mini Eggs, topped with whipped cream, more Mini Eggs and served in a chocolate-dipped sundae glass, decorated with more Mini Eggs.
It looks divine and it tastes divine!
And the best thing is, you don’t have to wait for it it set or bake, just whisk it up and get stuck in!

FAQs about Mini Egg milkshake
Once made, the milkshake it’s best to drink it straight away.
If you wait too long to drink the milkshake, the crushed Mini Eggs will settle in the bottom of the glass and that thick shake texture that the ice cream gives will become watery as it melts.
No, you don’t. I love Mini Eggs but there are so many different types available now you can use which ever are ones are you favourites.
Some of my favourite swaps are Milky Bar eggs, Terrys Chocolate Orange eggs and Smarties eggs. Kit Kat eggs and Malteser Bunnies are great too – swap the vanilla ice cream for chocolate ice cream for these.
Sure! I find vanilla ice cream works best as it lets the flavour of the Mini Eggs come through, but if you’re a chocolate lover swap out the vanilla for chocolate ice cream instead.
