Hey guys! Today I’m sharing a recipe for something anyone can make at any time; they’re so simple and so delicious: you guessed it, it’s milkshakes! So that’s why I’ll be sharing some of my favourite flavours for you guys to try. But first, let’s recap a basic recipe for most milkshakes:
- Put ice-cream, milk and (fruit/other thing) into a blender.
- Blend until smooth.
- Serve and enjoy!
Right, now you’ve got the basic recipe down, here are some flavours that once you’ll try, you won’t want to share even a sip with anyone else!
All of these recipes make 2 milkshakes each, and they include some timeless classics alongside some new funky fusions:
Vanilla: 1 pint of vanilla ice- cream, 1/4 cup of milk, 1 teaspoon of vanilla
Strawberry: 1 pint of strawberry ice- cream, 1/4 milk and 1 cup of strawberries ( Feel free to replace strawberries with any other fruit to get a delicious shake) For a healthier version, replace ice-cream with yoghurt and just add double the amount of fruit and some sugar to taste- trust me, this works!
Chocolate: 1 pint chocolate ice-cream, 1/4 cup cream, and 3 tbsps chocolate syrup/ melted chocolate
Nutella: 1 pint vanilla ice-cream, 1/2 cup nutella and 1/4 cup milk
Tiramisu: Soak 6 ladyfinger cookies in 1/2 cup coffee; blend and pour into glasses. Blend 1 cup each coffee ice cream and vanilla frozen yogurt with 1 tablespoon each milk and sweetened condensed milk; pour over the coffee-ladyfinger mixture. Dust with cocoa powder.
Raspberry Pavlova: Blend 1 cup each raspberry sorbet and vanilla frozen yogurt, 1/4 cup milk and 1/2 cup raspberries ; pour into glasses. Beat 2 egg whites and 2 tablespoons until stiff. Spoon onto the shakes and brown with a kitchen torch(optional)
Pina Colada: Blend 1 pint vanilla frozen yogurt, 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks, 1 tablespoon cream of coconut and 2 ounces dark rum. Garnish with pineapple chunks.
Cookies and Cream: Soak 1 cup chocolate wafer cookies in 1/4 cup milk until soft. Blend with 1 pint vanilla ice cream. Top with more cookies.
Mocha: Blend 1 cup each chocolate ice cream and coffee ice cream, 2 tablespoons milk and 1 tablespoon chocolate syrup.
Malted Mocha Chip: Blend 1 cup each chocolate ice cream and coffee ice cream, 3 tablespoons malted milk powder, 2 tablespoons milk and 1/4 cup chocolate chips.
