I have such fond memories growing up of going to church softball games and watching my dad play in the church league. It was a great opportunity to spend time with my friends, and clearly the best part about these evenings was heading to the concession stand and getting some fun treats. One of my childhood favorites were Nerds and to this day they bring back such fun memories.

Milkshakes. Ice cream you can drink. Pretty special stuff. Ice cream + Nerds + whipped cream? Now we’re really talking.

You know what might be the VERY best thing about milkshakes? They take about all of two seconds to whip up. A great treat in less than 5 minutes? Count me in.

This milkshake is versatile too — throw in whatever kind of Nerds you love. My grocery store happened to carry packages with a mixture of grape and strawberry and they made for an absolutely delicious and flavorful milkshake. Plus, fun colors. E’s favorite colors – purple and pink. But what 3 year old girl doesn’t love purple and pink? So clearly a pink and purple Nerds milkshake would be a winner!
