Little Blue Truck by Alice Schertle has been known in our house since before our oldest was born. Gifted to me as an expecting mom to be by a friend with the wise words of “this is a classic. You will love it”. To this day, over 7 years later, this book is still a favorite that is pulled from the shelf frequently to help my little one drift off to sleep.

At this point, I think I can almost quote this book from memory. I know all of the fun friends the Little Blue Truck meets along their journey. And I love the message the book is teaching. Treating people with respect because it’s the right thing to do. And someday, they may surprise you.

The Little Blue Truck has now become a series with several amazing and fun stories my kids love with their same loveable characters, and of course, little Blue!

Ingredients for Little Blue Truck Inspired Milkshake

Vanilla Ice Cream

Blue Curaco Syrup (I used this)


Chocolate Pudding

Silver Sanding Sugar (These are the ones I used)

Black Striped Straws (These are the straws I used)

Little Blue Truck orange flavored Milkshake

About the Ingredients

Vanilla Ice Cream is one of the most popular flavors of ice cream that is made by mixing cream, sugar, milk, eggs and vanilla

Blue Curaco derives its orangy taste from the dried leaves of the citrus fruit that is grown on the Island of Curaco. Despite its orange flavor, it has a vibrant blue color, which is exactly what we need for this Little Blue Truck inspired Milkshake.
