Filling 

  • Strawberries
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Milk 

Waffle Cone Crust 

  • Waffle Cones 
  • Unsalted Butter
  • Granulated Sugar

How To Make Strawberry Milkshake Pie

  • Prepare Strawberries: Slice the fresh strawberries and toss them with granulated sugar. Allow them to sit for about 30 minutes to macerate, which enhances their natural sweetness and creates a juicy, flavorful base for your pie.
  • Make Waffle Cone Crust: Crush waffle cones into fine crumbs using a food processor or blender. Mix the crumbs with melted butter and sugar until they resemble wet sand. Press this mixture firmly into the bottom of a pie plate to form the crust and refrigerate until it’s set.
  • Blend Filling: Combine the macerated strawberries, vanilla ice cream, and milk in a blender. Blend until smooth to create a creamy pie filling.
  • Assemble Pie: Pour the strawberry and ice cream mixture into the chilled crust. Smooth the top with a spatula to ensure an even layer.
  • Freeze to Set: Place the assembled pie in the freezer for at least 4 hours, allowing it to firm up and the flavors to meld together perfectly.
  • Garnish and Serve: Once set, let the pie thaw for about 10 minutes before slicing. Garnish with additional strawberries or whipped cream if desired and serve chilled.

Recipe Tips & Tricks

  • Use Fine Waffle Cone Crumbs: For a firm crust that holds up well, ensure the waffle cone crumbs are finely crushed and evenly mixed with the melted butter and sugar before pressing into the pie plate.
  • Chill the Crust Properly: Refrigerate the crust for at least 30 minutes before adding the filling to help set it firmly and prevent it from becoming soggy.
  • Check Pie Consistency: To ensure the pie is set but not too hard, check it after 4 hours of freezing. If it’s too firm, let it thaw slightly before serving for easier slicing.
  • Prevent Freezer Burn: Before freezing, cover the pie tightly with plastic wrap to protect it from freezer burn and keep the flavors fresh.
  • Milkshake-Inspired Garnishes: For a playful nod to traditional milkshakes, top each slice of your Strawberry Milkshake Pie with a dollop of whipped cream and a maraschino cherry.
Can I use frozen strawberries?

Yes, you can use frozen strawberries if fresh aren’t available. Make sure to thaw and drain them well to remove excess moisture that could make the pie filling too watery.

How long do you need to freeze before serving?

Strawberry Milkshake Pie typically needs to freeze for at least 4 hours to set properly. For best results, check the consistency at 4 hours and then decide if it needs more time based on your freezer’s temperature settings.

Can you make ahead of time?

Yes, this pie is perfect for making ahead. You can prepare and freeze it up to a week in advance, covered tightly with plastic wrap to maintain its freshness and prevent freezer burn.
