the Boysenberry Festival is happening right now at Knott's Berry Farm. it's one of Knott's most loved events of the year. there are over 80 different boysenberry foods to choose from boysenberry pizza to boysenberry cheesecake dipped in chocolate....YUM!!!! we had a great time when we visited on opening day. we started the day with a Fun Bun and ended it with a Boysenberry Icee. you can also buy boysenberry products at the Boysenberry Festival, such as boysenberry soap, boysenberry chapstick, boysenberry barbecue sauce and boysenberry jam. Boysenberry punch is a big deal at Knott's, and you can buy the boysenberry punch concentrate to make your own at home. there is a lot of great boysenberry products available.
so i decided to create a Knott's Boysenberry Milkshake with some of the boysenberry products i received. monster milkshakes are all the rage right now....so what way to better celebrate the boysenberry festival, than with a monster boysenberry milkshake. to make it, i used the following items – Berry Market Boysenberry Preserves, Knott's Berry Farm Boysenberry Punch Concentrate, Boysenberry Cotton Candy, and Boysenberry Honey.
the full recipe on how to make a Knott's Boysenberry Milkshake is below. here are some easy instructions on how to make it.
first, in a blender, add the ice cream and milk. blend till smooth...
next, add the boysenberry punch concentrate.
also add the boysenberry preserves. you can also add fresh berries at this time, about a handful. boysenberries are usually hard to find, so if you can't find any, blackberries will work. the boysenberry, is a cross between a loganberry, red raspberry and blackberry, so they go perfect together.
now it's time to make your boysenberry monster shake. using frosting, frost the rim of a large mason jar or glass container.then you can lightly press the cotton candy around the edge.
the boysenberry honey looks pretty dripping down the sides of the jar. make sure to place the jar on a plate.
