Oh, the beauty of the milkshake. I mean really, who came up with this idea?
Ice cream, milk and some fruit or flavorings. It’s cold, it’s refreshing, it’s flavorful. It’s like pure goodness in a glass. Not to mention perfect on a warm summer day.
They are fairly easy to make, although you do need a blender. And chances are the whole family will enjoy them. What’s not to like about a milkshake?
We had our milkshakes with dinner, burgers and fries, but they would of course, make a great dessert.
This is my favorite berry milkshake recipe. We used fresh strawberries, but I really think your favorite in-season berry could be substituted with no problem. If you have to use frozen berries, just omit the ice. I use crushed ice because my blender isn’t super powerful, you could just use ice cubes. Also, the sugar is really optional. It depends on how sweet your berries are and how sweet you like your milkshakes. Enjoy!
This makes enough for 2 large glasses.
- 2 cups strawberries, cleaned and stemmed
- 1 cup ice cubes/crushed ice
- 1 cup milk
- 2 cups vanilla ice cream
- 1 tsp sugar, optional
- Add all the ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Serve immediately.
