Valentine’s Day is for Shake Lovers

Strawberry Shortcake Shake

Valentine’s Day is for lovers.
This Valentine’s Day recipe is for lovers of strawberries. And shakes. And cake. And chocolate. Did we miss anybody? Good, didn’t think so.

This shake is so decadently delicious, it’s sure to update the old adage, “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” to, “The way to everybody’s heart is with this delicious concoction of love.” Think of it as an ice-creamy love potion .

Surprise your significant other with one on Feb. 14, you know, before the main course. Wink. Wink.
