Inspired by everyone’s favorite Valentine’s Day treat, this milkshake is perfect for sharing with a loved one or having all to yourself. A juicy strawberry topping and swirl of chocolate syrup make this shake simply irresistible.

PREP TIME: 15 minutes   |   YIELD: 2 servings 




  • 3 c. strawberry ice cream (about 3 scoops) 
  • ¾ c. whole milk 
  • 1/8 tsp. salt 
  • 2 tbsp. chocolate syrup


  • 1 c. strawberries, sliced 
  • 2 tbsp. sugar 
  • 1 tbsp. water


  • Whipped cream 
  • 4 chocolate Pirouettes 
  • 2 whole strawberries 
  • Cocoa powder 


  1. To make the topping, combine the strawberries, sugar and water in a small saucepan. Cook over a low flame, stirring occasionally to prevent burning. Remove from the heat once the mixture reaches jam consistency, about 10 minutes.
  2. For the milkshake, combine ice cream, milk and salt in a blender. Blend on medium to combine. If needed, add a bit more milk to achieve the desired consistency.
  3. Drizzle chocolate syrup along the inside of the glasses. Divide milkshake among glasses and add strawberry topping to each.
  4. Vertically cut the last 2 strawberries partway and place 1 on the rim of each glass. Top with whipped cream, then put 2 chocolate Pirouettes into each shake. Finish with a dusting of cocoa powder!
