Churro Dipper Shake features vanilla shake and cinnamon coated crispy churro as two main ingredients. If you want to prepare this recipe at home you will need the following ingredients handy at your kitchen.

  • milk
  • white frosting or marshmallow creme for frosting cup rims
  • cinnamon/sugar mixture
  • whipped cream
  • Small piece of my Churro Toffee
  • Red and White Striped Straw if needed
  • clear plastic cups


For Churros

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 ½ tablespoons white sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 quarts oil for frying
  • ½ cup white sugar, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Method of Preparation

To prepare this recipe place ice cream into a large blender. Add brown sugar, cinnamon, pudding mix and milk to the blender. Blend all the ingredients on high speed until they are well combined.

Churros Preparation

In a small saucepan combine water, 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar, salt, and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil over medium heat. Bring this mixture to a boil and remove from heat after a few minutes. Mix flour to the mixture until it forms a ball.

The Churro Dipper Shake features a warm, crispy cinnamon churro dipped in a creamy Vanilla shake with chocolate swirls. While the churro serves as an added treat, it also doubles as a replacement for flavorless plastic utensils. “Its ridges are the perfect tool for collecting and savoring the leftover chocolate sauce and ice cream that the straw couldn’t quite get.”
