How to Make a Milkshake
Making milkshakes at home has never been easier. Here's how to make a milkshake that is the perfect consistency.
Servings 1 serving
- 5 scoops ice cream about 1 ¾ cups
- ¼ cup milk
Combine the ice cream and milk in a blender and blend on low until smooth.
Pour into a cup and garnish with whipped cream, sprinkles and a cherry if desired.
- To make this milkshake even creamier, you can try using heavy cream in place of milk.
- When purchasing ice cream, make sure you are being real 100% dairy ice cream. There are ice creams that are labeled as “frozen desserts” as they’re made with vegetable oils.
- To easily scoop your ice cream, let your ice cream sit at room temperature for around 5 minutes so it can soften enough to scoop.
- If you find the milkshake a little too thick for your liking, add in additional milk a couple of splashes at a time.
- To help your drink stay cold longer, you can place your glasses in the freezer beforehand.
- Don’t have a can of whipped cream on hand? Try making your own whipped cream.
- Don’t add ice to this. Ice will water down your drink.
