Butterbeer Milkshake

Updated: Nov 24, 2023

I'm reading through the Harry Potter series with my son and he's loving it. We recently finished the fourth book, Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire. As usual, I had to do an at-home movie showing with a themed dinner with fun treats to celebrate. We always make a butterbeer milkshake anytime we watch a Harry Potter movie and this time was no different.

This butterbeer milkshake is only a few ingredients and so easy to make! Kids and adults alike love it!

Butterbeer Milkshake


4 cups cream soda

4 cups vanilla ice cream

1/2 cup butterscotch topping (plus more for topping)

whipped cream

glass of butterbeer milkshake


In a blender, mix together your cream soda, your favorite vanilla ice cream, and butterscotch topping. Blend together until smooth.

Divide into individual servings (ours made 4 glasses) and top with whipped cream and a drizzle of butterscotch topping. Serve and enjoy!

This drink is creamy and drinkable and not quite as thick as a real milkshake, but so yummy! Perfect for whipping up during a Harry Potter movie night!

We also snagged some butterbeer chewy candies and chocolate frogs and pretended we were on the train to Hogwarts buying stuff off the trolley!
