As we are approaching the end of September, we have reached the last post in my 90s series. We have had a playlist, food, drink, art, sewing, nail art, and the cutest set of wallpapers. I have had so much fun thinking of different ideas sticking to one theme, and it has definitely encouraged me to organise a very special Blogmas this year. I want to keep it a secret for as long as I can (probably won't be that long knowing me), but I will be revealing little sneak peaks on Twitter and Instagram so make sure you're following if you'd like to know more. Now back to today's post.

I have been trying to put together a freakshake for some time now, but I could never find a flavour I was completely happy with. While I was planning for 90s month, I knew I had to include a freakshake. Again, no flavours came to mind straight way, until I was looking through an old photo album, and I came across a picture of me, probably around the age of 6, holding the biggest fluff ball of candy floss. It was literally twice the size of my head. So of course the flavour would need to be candy floss.

In case you're not familiar with the term 'freakshake', the best way I can describe it is a sweet tooth's dream. The creamiest ice-cream shake, decorated with absolutely everything. The higher the pile, the better. I definitely enjoyed decorating this freakshake more than I probably should have. It honestly felt like I was putting together an art installation. The sweetest edible art installation ever! To decorate mine, I started off with a fluffy cloud of candy floss, and decorated it with my favourite 90s things; rainbow drops, party rings, pink wafers, love hearts, strawberry laces, flying saucers, and a huge lollipop. This recipe is dairy-free, but you can use dairy milk and ice-cream if that is what you have available.


This recipe makes 1 sweet freakshake.


  • 3 scoops of dairy-free vanilla ice-cream
  • 1/2 cup dairy-free milk
  • a huge handful of candy floss


  1. (optional) To decorate your glass, layer icing over the rim, and cover with rainbow drops.
  2. Put all the milkshake ingredients in a blender and blend until completely combined. Add more candy floss for a sweeter taste. Add more ice cream for a thicker shake, or add more milk for a thinner shake.
  3. Add candy floss on top, and decorate with more 90s treats.

I am planning on cutting down all sugar until December. Well, I can try. Let me know in the comments below your favourite post from 90s month. Mine would have to be the bubble art prints, and nail art.
