Strawberry milkshake

A strawberry milkshake, a vanilla milkshake or a chocolate milkshake, I think that sums up the three favorite milkshake flavors. My favorite is the strawberry milkshake, so I am sharing that with you today.

Easy strawberry milkshake recipe

Briefly, you make a strawberry milkshake by mixing ice cream, milk and strawberries. You can use either fresh or frozen strawberries for this milkshake.

I remember well that we used to have a milkshake maker at home; it was one I had won at bingo. I think we used it a couple of times before it disappeared into a bag and sat gathering dust in the shed. Of course, a special milkshake maker is not necessary. A blender or food processor also work perfectly. For this strawberry milkshake recipe, I used the blender.

Once you have blended all the ingredients into a smooth consistency, pour the milkshake into pretty glasses and decorate the milkshakes with whipped cream, a fresh strawberry and possibly some sprinkles. You can go as far as you want and make it a real freak shake.

Strawberry milkshake without ice cream

Nowadays many people are looking for a slightly healthier version of their beloved milkshake. Sure, you make a real milkshake with ice cream, but you can still make a tasty strawberry milkshake without ice cream. Just replace the ice cream with milk (preferably whole milk).

Optionally, you can add some extra sugar or sweetener to replace some of the sweetness of the missing ice cream, or replace the sugar with a ripe banana. The banana will make your milkshake a little firmer.

How do you thicken a milkshake?

I used strawberries from the freezer for this milkshake. This makes your milkshake nice and cold and also a little thicker. If you use fresh strawberries, you can adjust the ice cream to milk ratio a bit. Use more ice cream and less milk. You can also cut out some of the sugar if you add more ice.

How to make the best milkshake

Can you save a milkshake for later?

I don’t recommend it, but it can be done. Covered in the refrigerator, the milkshake stays good for about 2 – 3 days. But the milkshake is really much tastier if you enjoy it right away.

Can you replace the strawberries with other fruit?

Absolutely! Just keep in mind that some fruits are a little sweeter or waterier than others. You might also want to experiment with the other ingredients, but that’s totally up to you.

Can you also use an immersion blender?

I haven’t tested this, but I’m sure it can be done. However, I do think you will not be able to blend the strawberries as smoothly.
