Shake vigorously then strain into the cocktail glass. Cut a slit into the bottom of a Peep and add to the rim of the glass.
Make this drink non-alcoholic so your whole group can enjoy it. Frist rim a glass with simple syrup and pink sugar. In a blender mix vanilla ice cream, frozen strawberries, and milk and serve it up in these festive glasses. Almost everyone can enjoy a strawberry shake!
To make a lighter version of this cocktail, use milk instead of heavy cream. You will still get the rich creamy taste, but with far less calories!
