What to Serve with Your King Cake Shake

Bread and Pastry

This King Cake Shake is a delightful drink that can be enjoyed on its own or with some tasty bread and pastry. It complements both sweet and savory bread and pastries.

This allows you to enjoy the refreshing and aromatic coffee flavor throughout the day while also providing your taste buds with a slight shift in texture and flavor.

Finger or Comfort Food

Try pairing this shake with your favorite comfort foods like clubhouse sandwiches, fries or mojos, nuggets, and other snacks that go well with a cold sip of the milkshake. 

Popular Substitutions & Additions

Some health-conscious people may prefer to use almond or oat milk in the recipe. If you don't have any on hand, you can make your own homemade whipped cream.

Cold cream whips up the fastest and lightest; freezing the bowl, whisk, or beaters for at least 15 minutes before whipping the cream also aids in this process.

In a large, refrigerated basin, combine the ingredients with a whisk, standing mixer, or electric beaters (metal is preferable).

How To Store Mardi Gras King Cake Shake

Best Way To Store King Cake Shake Leftover

Place the milkshake in the freezer to keep it cold. It must be stored in the main section, away from the door, to prevent temperature variations from destroying the consistency.

When you're ready to drink it, take it out of the freezer and thaw it for about 20 minutes.

How Long Will Mardi Gras King Cake Shake Last In the Fridge?

Five hours if unrefrigerated. It's best if you can keep it as cold as possible during those five hours. If you have an insulated container or if the day is cold and not in the sun, you should be alright.

Can I Freeze King Cake Shake

A milkshake may be frozen and thawed, and it's the best storage method if you want to retain its consistency.  

Aside from keeping your milkshake away from the freezer door, you should also put it in an airtight container before freezing it.

King Cake Shake FAQs

Can I use another kind of glass instead?

Yes, you can use any kind of glass that you prefer. Try adding syrup on the sides of the glass before pouring the mixture to create an even presentation.

Can I skip adding the whipped topping?

Yes. If you are not a fan of whipped topping, you can skip it and enjoy the Frappuccino as it is.

Can I add more toppings?

Yes. If you are free to customize the toppings on your preference. Try exploring toppings that will add more texture to the dip. You can top it off with sprinkles, chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, crushed pretzels, and more. Be as creative and experimental as possible.

Can I add food color to it?

Yes. If you want to go all out with the presentation, try adding in a few drops of food color. I would prefer purple or green to complement the theme.

Can I unfreeze it?

Yes, you can. To defrost a frozen solid milkshake (assuming it is still in the cup), place the frozen milkshake (in its cup) in a bowl of hot water for a couple of minutes, or run hot water around the exterior of the cup until the frozen milkshake can be removed.
