Orondo Ruby® Cherry Milkshake

Fresh Orondo Ruby® cherries are excellent when blended into a classic vanilla milkshake. Our easy-peasy recipe can be thrown together in 5 minutes.

If you want to make milkshakes for a crowd, just multiply the recipe by the number of milkshakes needed. The only limit is the size of your blender! 

To make our adorable sprinkle straws, dip the ends of your straws in some melted white chocolate, then roll in colorful sprinkles until chocolate is completely coated. Place on a wire cooling rack and allow to set.
