Halloween Milkshake Ingredients
This delicious Hocus Pocus Halloween Milkshake recipe only needs a few ingredients:
MILK: Whole milk is a key ingredient in this recipe because it helps to create a creamy, smooth and delicious milkshake.
LIME SHERBET: The lime sherbet in this recipe adds to the creaminess, plus gives it a bright citrus flavor. It’s also a an important ingredient in creating the festive green color for Halloween.
NEON GREEN GEL FOOD DYE: Although the lime sherbet contributes to the green color, the drop of neon green food coloring really makes it pop. If you are using regular food coloring (not the gel), you’ll probably need to use 2-3 drops. But, you’ll definitely get a much brighter color by using the neon gel food coloring.
WHIPPED CREAM TOPPING: Whipped cream adds even more creamy and yummy flavor to this Halloween milkshake. It also adds a touch of sweetness that complements the lime sherbet perfectly. Make sure to use canned whipped cream so you can make a swirl that stands tall to showcase the sweet sprinkles.
PURPLE AND GREEN PEARL SPRINKLES: The purple and green pearl sprinkles add a touch of festivity and fun to this Halloween milkshake. Using purple and green to go with the Hocus Pocus theme, they’re the perfect finishing touch for this drink. Not only do they look great on top of the whipped cream, but they also taste amazing, adding a sweet and crunchy texture to the shake.
BLACK SPRINKLES: Use black sprinkles for garnish to add a touch of spookiness to the milkshake, perfect for Halloween and adding to the festive feel. You can use these black sprinkles for all kinds of Halloween treats.
CANDY EYES: In keeping with the Hocus Pocus theme, candy eyes are the perfect addition to the toppings.

- If you’re not a fan of lime sherbet, use vanilla ice cream and add an extra drop or two of food coloring.
- You can add a shot of rum to make it a grown-up drink.
- Use soy milk instead of regular milk if preferred.
- If you want your milkshake creamier, try using half and half or substitute a portion of the milk with heavy cream.
