Valentines Recipe

Double-Raspberry Shake for Two

Valentines is a great time to have a special meal with that special someone. Multiple courses, wine, and dessert make for a quite filling meal, so we like to have something fairly light for after. If you really like something sweet to freshen the palette, offer chocolate truffles alongside or afterwards, with coffee or Champagne.


  • 1 6-ounce basket fresh raspberries (or strawberries work just as well)

  • 1/4 cup whole milk

  • 1/4 cup whipping cream

  • 1 tablespoon raw sugar

  • 1 cup vanilla ice cream

  • Raspberry sorbet (one scoop each for garnish along with mint leaf)


  • Set aside 4 raspberries for garnish. Combine remaining raspberries, milk, whipping cream, and sugar in blender; blend until smooth. Add ice cream; blend until smooth, stopping once or twice to scrape down sides of blender, if necessary. Pour malted shake into fluted soda-fountain style glass. Top with sorbet. Garnish malt with reserved berries, sorbet and mint.
