Remember those vanilla bean and honey roasted cherries that I made last week? Here’s a photo to jog your memory:

Honestly, I ate most of these with a spoon – they’re that good. Before I devoured them all though, I had a great idea. I’d been wanting to make a milkshake  for Ice Cream Week and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to make a new flavor. I threw some cherries in the blender with some vanilla ice cream and poof! Delicious milkshake. I didn’t even need any milk to thin it out – it was the perfect creamy drink.

I hope you’ve been enjoying Ice Cream Week! Check out all the other amazing ice cream recipes going up today – the links are after the recipe below.

Roasted Cherry Milkshakes



  1. Place roasted cherries and ice cream into a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
  2. Optional: Taste milkshake and add more cherries if preferred, then blend until incorporated. Or, if too thick, add some milk and blend until smooth.
  3. Enjoy immediately, with a drizzle of chocolate syrup and/or whipped cream.

    Gaaaah this looks incredible! I can’t believe it’s already August and I haven’t had any cherry desserts at all. Obviously I need to remedy that stat and make this amazing milk shake!
