Double Chocolate Donut Shake

filed under: Food + Drink on January 3, 2016

Indulging in a fantastic, decadent, and delicious Chocolate Donut Shake is one of my favorite treats! I made some donuts recently, but we were not able to eat them all in the first couple of days. As much as I still enjoy the flavor of a 2-day old donut, I do not enjoy the texture. This is the perfect way to enjoy them!

Donuts can definitely be glaze covered or have embellishment like sprinkles.

I used chocolate donuts, chocolate ice cream, chocolate hot fudge in this recipe, but you can certainly use vanilla flavors.

This works best with 1 or 2-day old donuts, as fresh donuts will be quite moist and not blend as well.

I can’t imagine are more indulgent or decadent treat!

    What a great way to put leftover chocolate doughnuts to use! I have some chocolate cookies that are about to go bad … I think I will do something similar with them! 😀

    Amanda thank you EVER so much for posting a luscious recipe!! My belly growled, and, hang on, gotta wipe up the drool. Have been soo bored reading the blogs with all the resolutions, healthy eating, blah blah blah! UGH! Trying to catch up on my reading and pinning, and all I see is chis seeds, overnight oats, and quinoa! Now I just sound mean. Like all that as much as anybody(not really?), But I love foaming, dripping, gooey stuff WAY better. Happy New Year! Thanks again, are too funny!!!!

    This is such a great idea to use up leftover donuts! Looks so decadent and amazing!

  • Cara @ The Little Blonde Baker says:

    This looks so good. I know you say to use 1 to 2 day old donuts. (They don’t usually make it that long in my place) How do the donuts blend? Are they smooth into the ice cream or are they like cookie crumbs?

    • Amanda says:

      When they are fresh it gets more mushy… not crumb-y. And crumby is better in the smoothie! 🙂

    I’ve always wondered what to do with old, stale donuts. This is perfect.
