At Flip Burger Boutique in Atlanta and Birmingham, Top Chef vet Richard Blais and his crew are known for shaking up the idea of the traditional shake. Flavors range from foie gras and Cap'n Crunch to Nutella and Krispy Kreme and now, in honor of Easter, chef Ian Forrest created a new shake made with chicken and eggs.
Well not really, but we wouldn't put it past him.
Technically it's a rich vanilla shake topped with Peeps and Cadbury Cream Eggs, two of the most beloved Easter treats. Forrest says the concoction tastes like "cold vanilla frothiness with rich marshmallow flavors," and he adds strawberry foam for a final fruity note. "Fresh strawberries from the backyard are a perfect topping—they can be blended into whipped foam or used in whole slices as a garnish," he says. "Who doesn't like their shakes topped with something whipped? I know I do."
If you do too, try Flip's Easter shake at home with the recipe below. Or if you're lucky enough to live near one of Flip's locations, stop by Monday, March 25th through Sunday, March 31st for a straw full of something sugary.
