This Bloody Monster Eyes Halloween Milkshake is made with a freaky delicious vanilla based shake with a matcha green tea whipped cream decorated with a chocolate drizzle and bloody eyeballs made of donuts.
Starbucks just released a Beetlejuice Frappuccino which looks and sounds amazingly fun! It also inspired the milkshake today with the green whipped cream made from matcha powder. Matcha powder is a great ingredient to use when baking. The powder is very fine and mixes well, offers extra flavor and also naturally colors food with its vibrant green pigment.

Bloody Monster Eyes Halloween Milkshake
Bloody Monster Eyes Halloween Milkshake has a great vanilla base with bursts of chocolate. The whipped cream tastes like green tea which pairs very nicely with both the vanilla and chocolate and adds a very unique flavor.
What You Need
- Frosting. A pre-made frosting is fine or whip up a quick buttercream with some butter, confectioners sugar and pinch of milk.
- Donut holes. Any are fine but I picked the powdered sugar ones since they are white.
- Candy eyes. Grab some candy eyes that are flat on the backside.
- Red cookie icing for “blood”. I bought the pre-made for the icing but you can make your own.
- Skewers and toothpick to hold the eyes in place.
- Milkshake ingredients: vanilla ice cream, vanilla extract, chocolate syrup, heavy whipping cream, confectioners sugar, milk, gelatin powder and matcha powder.
Tips & Tricks
Matcha Whipped Cream
Unflavored gelatin is added to the matcha whipped cream to stabilize it. This is easily done using 1 teaspoon gelatin powder to 4 teaspoon hot water. Let the gelatin dissolve in the water and right before adding it to the whipped cream mixture, pop it in the microwave for a few seconds to you have a nice liquid that will begin to set up once it is beaten with the whipped cream.

Matcha Whipped Cream
- 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin powder
- 4 teaspoons hot water
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 teaspoons matcha powder
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup confectioners sugar
- 4 donut holes, (powdered)
- 4 candy eyes
- red icing, (store bought or homemade)
- white frosting, (store bought or homemade)
- chocolate syrup
- Start by making the bloody eyeballs. Place some frosting on the back of the eyes and then put in the center of the donut holes.
- Use the red icing to create a "bloody" eye look. Put a skewer in each donut eye and then secure them together with a toothpick between the donuts. ** double check the height of the skewers to ensure the will fit into your glass perfectly. If not, cut some off the bottom.
- Let the donut eyes sit int the fridge to set up while you make the whipped cream and milkshake.
Matcha Whipped Cream
- Place a mixing bowl and beaters into freezer to chill before using.
- Add gelatin powder to 4 teaspoons hot water and stir well so the gelatin begins to dissolve. Place to the side.
- Take your mixing bowl and beaters out of the freezer and assemble hand mixer.
- Add heavy cream, matcha powder, vanilla extract and confectioners sugar to mixing bowl and beat for 5-7 minutes or until a stiff peak is formed. This means that when the beaters are lifted from the bowl, the whipped cream forms a peak that does not lose shape.
- Grab the gelatin mixture and microwave for 5 seconds. Stir and add into mixing bowl. Beat whipped cream so the gelatin is dispersed evenly among whipped cream.
- Place whipped cream into a pastry bag with a large tip.
- Blend ice cream, vanilla extract and milk.
- Drizzle some chocolate syrup into the milkshake glass. Pour milkshake in.
- Put whipped cream on top.
- Place the bloody eyeballs towards the front of the glass. Place some more red icing below the eyes.
