So, this happened today. It’s Saturday and we ventured out and decided to try something new. I love to visit new foodie spots to see what new and exciting creations are out there. We tried Muggle Shakes, a fairly new dessert location in our area (Keller, Texas) that serves the most amazing, over-the-top frozen treats.
Based on the name, I thought they may have some Harry Potter themed desserts but it was different than I guessed. All of their delicious frozen yogurt shakes are served in glass mugs and that’s where the name comes from. For $6.99, you can choose from 10 different shakes that are sure to make you smile.
For our first time, we chose the
- Unicorn-pink marshmallow creme mug filled with vanilla froyo milkshake topped with a powdered sugar donut, cotton candy, edible marshmallow unicorn with a magical cone horn
- Nutty Pretzel-Nutella, pretzels mug filled with salted caramel popcorn, chocolate froyo milkshake, topped with a pretzel dipped in Nutella, with a caramel sauce drizzle
- Yabba-Dabba Doo-marshmallow creme, Fruity Pebbles mug vanilla froyo milkshake topped with a rice crispy treat and marshmallow drizzle
It was hard to choose the first one. They all looked so good. I wanted to try them all but I had to start somewhere.
It took about 25 minutes to receive our order but I didn’t care. I sat on the edge of my seat watching everybody else get their orders. Everything that came out of that kitchen was a culinary delight. I wanted to stop each and every person and ask for a picture of their purchase. I practiced self restraint and managed to stay seated until they called my number.
I tried to hide my excitement and cooly walk to the counter but every fiber of my being wanted to run to get our milkshakes.
Our shakes were everything I imagined they’d be. Sweet, cold, sticky, outrageous, and special are all words that I would use to describe these frozen delights.
Instantly, I began to plot my return. I hinted around that my birthday would be approaching soon and that I really liked these shakes. My subtlety was not lost on my family and they agreed to bring me back for my big day. Woo hoo!
In the meantime, I decided to try out my own version of a muggle shake at home. I made a peanut butter and jelly froyo shake and the taste was delicious! However, mid-picture taking, half of the toppings slid off on the floor. It’s just too hot in Texas right now. Oh well! Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
I was able to add more whip cream and other toppings so you can kind of see how it looked before the great avalanche.
If you are looking for over-the-top milkshakes in your area, search for freak shakes or monster shakes or you can just follow my recipe and make your own.
Just have fun with it!
Peanut Butter and Jelly Shake
32 ounces low-fat vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter plus extra for drizzle
1/2 cup marshmallow creme
Purple food coloring
Captain Crunch Peanut Butter Cereal
1 cup milk
1 cup grape jam for filling plus more for drizzle
Honey Bun, Pastries for decorations
1. Mix 1/2 cup of peanut butter into yogurt and freeze.
2. In a small bowl combine marshmallow creme with purple food coloring to achieve desired color. I used 6 drops. Stir.
3. Coat the top of your glass mug with purple marshmallow creme. Stick cereal to the creme.
5. In a blender mix, frozen yogurt with 1 cup milk to create milkshake.
4. Fill glass 1/2 way with milkshake. Add cereal and grape jelly in a layer. Top with milkshake.
5. Top with whip cream and grape jam and peanut butter drizzle. (Microwave grape jam and peanut butter first for about 20 seconds to liquify and to make it pourable.)
6. Add colorful straw, spoon and decorate with honey, pastries, and/or a donut.
7. Serve immediately and enjoy!
