Easy Macaron Milkshake
Give a plain vanilla milk shake a hint of color and added flavor by whizzing macarons into the mix. Pink macarons are a no-brainer (often strawberry, rose, or raspberry-flavored). Make sure you buy a few extra for garnishing the glass.
4 cups vanilla ice cream
1 cup milk
6 to 8 macaron cookies, plus more for garnish (optional)
Lemon-Blueberry Macaron Trifles
We made individual lemon-blueberry trifles to complement the new blueberry macarons we found at Lafayette Grand Café & Bakery. Feel free to swap in different fruit and mix-ins depending on your macaron flavor (think raspberry-chocolate, peach-raspberry, pistachio-strawberry, etc).
2 cups sweetened whipped cream
1/2 to 3/4 cup mascarpone cheese
Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
24 macaron cookies
2 cups blueberries
Macaron Banana Splits
Banana splits are made for topping! So, give yours a sophisticated twist by using crushed macarons instead of sprinkles. Set out a selection of different flavors and invite friends to make their own splits, mixing and matching their favorite macaron flavors. We used chocolate and chocolate-bergamot, here!
8 small bananas, peeled
2 pints ice cream (your choice of flavor)
1/2 cup chocolate sauce
1/2 cup sweetened whipped cream
12 macaron cookies
