The Dr. Pepper Shake

Whataburger is a staple in my house. Once a week, we get in the car and drive to the nearest location for a delicious burger.


Recently, the beloved chain restaurant added something new to their menu: a milkshake that tastes like Dr. Pepper! As a massive Dr. Pepper fan, I was incredibly excited to try it.

Since it was just released, some locations don’t have it yet, including mine. Instead of crying and screaming “no” at the sky, I decided to attempt making my own.

Luckily, Southern Living was already ahead of the game. They posted a video tutorial on Facebook that shows you exactly how to make a Dr. Pepper shake!

Wanna get started on making your own? Here’s what you’ll need:

  • vanilla ice cream
  • Dr. Pepper soda

How It’s Made

Now for making this deliciousness. First, take your Dr. Pepper and put it into a small saucepan over medium-high. Bring to a boil, then simmer until reduced to 1/4 cup.

This should take about 20 minutes to do. Then, let the syrup cool completely and blend with your vanilla ice cream. If you’d like, thin it out with more Dr. Pepper.

Then that’s it, you’re done! Pour the deliciousness in a glass and enjoy. You’re gonna love this sweet treat!
