Classic Purple Cow Drink (Recipe 1 of 3)

The Classic Purple Cow is a childhood favourite, and rather simple to make as well.  It links the creamy yummy-ness of ice cream, and the fruity goodness of thick grape. It is more of an ice cream soda than a smoothie, but is still another great alcohol free pleaser.


  • Vanilla Ice Cream 2 scoops
  • Milk 100 ml
  • Purple or Dark Red Grape Juice 200 ml (I prefer Welsh’s or similar)


Put two scoops of ice cream into a large glass and add half the milk. Stir until ice cream begins to melt. Add 1/2 the grape juice and stir again.  Add additional milk and juice a splash at a time, stirring at each step. Serve when glass is full.

Next time I will give an alternative recipe.
