Grimace Shake Recipe

Hey everyone! Remember the Grimace Shake from McDonald’s last summer? It was this amazing purple, berry-flavored milkshake that everyone went nuts over. Well, guess what? We can bring that deliciousness back into our lives with a super easy copycat recipe!

This Grimace Shake was a limited-time thing in June 2023, part of a special birthday meal for the purple fuzzy guy himself. It was such a hit with its vibrant color and sweet taste that people were bummed when it disappeared. But fear not, fellow milkshake lovers, because we’re about to recreate that magic right at home!

Speaking of Grimace, there’s actually a funny trend going around on TikTok. People are filming themselves drinking something they call the Grimace Shake, but it’s not your usual food review. These videos are all about getting creative – folks are acting all dramatic, pretending to be “victims” of the shake’s deliciousness, covered in purple goo (which is totally the Grimace Shake, wink wink). It’s pretty hilarious to see what people come up with!

Alright, enough about the internet chaos, let’s get shaking! Here’s what you’ll need to whip up your very own Grimace Shake:

  • Vanilla ice cream (soften it up a bit for easier blending)
  • Whole milk
  • Frozen blueberries (they’ll add both flavor and color)
  • Mixed berry jam (strawberry or raspberry works too!)
  • Purple food coloring (optional, but totally fun for that iconic Grimace purple)
  • Whipped cream and rainbow sprinkles (because, hey, it’s a party!)

This recipe is so simple, you’ll have your milkshake ready in under 10 minutes. Here’s the breakdown:

  1. Throw everything but the whipped cream and sprinkles into your blender. Blend it all up until it’s nice and smooth. The blueberries should give it a good berry flavor and some purple color, but feel free to add a few drops of food coloring if you want it extra vibrant.
  2. Now comes the fun part! Pour your masterpiece into a glass and pile on the whipped cream and sprinkles. There you have it, a delicious copycat Grimace Shake to satisfy your cravings and celebrate the fuzzy purple icon (even if it’s not officially his birthday anymore). Enjoy!
