How to make a killer milkshake? It’s easier than you may have thought, just make sure you use fresh ingredients, keep it simple - or maybe just little bit fancy - and you’re set.
What you need to make 2 large strawberry milkshakes:
2 cups of strawberry ice cream
250g of fresh strawberries or according to preference, some to garnish
2 tbsp of white sugar or to taste
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1 cup of cold milk
To get the best result, do your utmost to use pure and additive-free ingredients. Ice cream can not just be rich in sugar, but also filled to the brim with artificial colors and flavors. Add sugar according to your preference but do try and not kill the fresh strawberry flavor. Following these simple guidelines should give you a perfect milkshake!
What to do:
Wash and de-stalk the berries.
Sprinkle the sugar over them and stir in the vanilla extract.
Freeze the strawberries for about an hour.
When the berries have frozen solid, pull them out.
With a cup of milk blend the berries as long as it takes to get a smooth mixture.
Stop the blender for a moment and add in the ice cream - mix it in by hand at first, then blend the whole thing thoroughly.
Tip: if you prefer a thicker milkshake, cut down on the milk!
Now, If you are not a strawberry kind of person - making the classic chocolate shake is easy-breezy:
Replace strawberry ice cream with chocolate ice cream
Dump the berries and sweeteners - grab some chocolate syrup instead and add it to the mixture according to taste.
Blend the ice cream, syrup and milk until smooth and enjoy!
