A recipe for a Roasted Strawberry Shortcake Shake Roasted Strawberries. Roasted Strawberry Shortcake Shake topped with crumbled pound cake. Hey! Did everyone have a good weekend? Even though I was super busy I actually had a pretty nice little weekend. One of my favorite parts was brunching with the boyfriend at Gum Tree; a great Aussie inspired cafe in the South Bay. We sat outside because the weather was great, the food was great, and the people watched was great. I LOVE people watching. It’s such a great way to relax and sort of get lost in thought. Sometimes we’ll make up random and funny stories about the people passing by, just to entertain ourselves. Nerdy, yes. Entertaining, absolutely.

Anyway, Tuesday is Valentine’s Day and this is the perfect shake to make a loved one or even just for yourself as a decadent sweet treat. Not only is this milkshake awesome because it’s pretty and pink, but also because it has actual poundcake in it. Oh, and the roasted strawberries…totally awesome and delicious. Roasting them adds depth to this fun dessert. So regardless of what you do this Valentine’s Day, make sure to include this tasty  and super simple shake into a part of your day! Seriously. Enjoy, all! xx Jenny

    Can you use frozen strawberries? That is all I have and I really want to make this.

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Definitely! Just defrost them, drain them and lightly blot them with a paper towel before adding the sugar and vinegar. Good luck!

      • Marsha Not Specified Not Specified

        I don’t get why they say vinegar…can you taste it in the shake?

        • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

          The balsamic vinegar is for roasting the brings out a sweet, rich and caramelized flavor in the strawberries that translate well in the shake!…but no, you won’t actually taste vinegar in the shake! :)
