Make it in a Shake: Nanaimo Bar Milkshake Recipe

File under "Unholy, but Wholly Delicious": The Nanaimo Bar Shake.

That's right.

When I recently found myself with an excess of Nanaimo Bars--to the point where they were just on the verge of getting stale--I thought to myself, "how can I revive these sweet treats for an extra-awesome treat?". The answer was swift and obvious: make it in a shake!

The result when you give the richest, most decadently addictive bar cookie on earth gets a butterfat upgrade? You have yourself a frosty froth of fantastic, that's what you've got. 

Here's how to make this magic happen at home. 

You're welcome.



Nanaimo Bar Shake

  • 1 Nanaimo Bar
  • 2 scoops ice cream, vanilla or chocolate, or one of each
  • milk or cream, to thin (up to 1/4 cup)


But in a blender. Blend. Add more milk/cream if you want it more sippable. Enjoy.
