Old Fashioned Raspberry Shake Recipe + Driscoll’s Minnesota Berry Together Sweepstakes

It’s not a surprise that we Minnesotans are a bunch of raspberry lovers, but now there is hard data to back it up. According to Driscoll’s, the Twin Cities is the leading market for raspberries (measured by consumption per household), with residents enjoying 153% more raspberries than the national average! Does your family love raspberries? Ours does and they have been a part of our special moments and favorite foods ever since I can remember.

During the summer, raspberries were often the star of dessert at my grandparents house. My grandma would prepare them by sprinkling with sugar and letting them sit in the refrigerator, would turned them into an easy raspberry sauce, which we put over ice cream or a slice of poundcake.

In our own house, raspberries were a summer staple too. The way my mind remembers it, Mom did most of the regular cooking for meals in our house. But when it came to treats, then Dad took over. He made the most delicious raspberry filled crepes! I always thought that crepes seemed like a fancy food, but he swore that they weren’t that hard to make. But, since Dad was a big ice cream fan, as well as a raspberry fan, he was even more likely to make us raspberry shakes. This is my version of Dad’s recipe, which just happens to be the best raspberry shake recipe ever.


Best Raspberry Shake Recipe Ever


3 cups reduced fat ice cream
1 cup milk (I use 1%)
1 package (6 ounces or 1 1/4 cups) Driscoll’s Raspberries


Place ice cream and milk in blender.
Blend until smooth.
Add raspberries to blender.
Blend on low speed for 10 seconds.
Pour into glasses and serve immediately.

While many kids love shakes, even more seem to love ice pops. Well, guess what? This recipe is super easy to turn into Raspberry Shake Freezer Pops! All you do is let the shake melt a bit after making (or start out with 1/2 cup extra milk for a more runny concoction) and then pour the shake mixture into an ice pop mold. Let freeze until hardened and then, voila! Yummy Raspberry Shake Freezer Pops for the kids. (Or the adults because really, who doesn’t love a homemade freezer pop?
