Considering a nutritious yet refreshing drink for a hot day and your mind might just decide upon a fresh milkshake. These quaint coolers offer the creamy satisfaction of ice cream combined with the ease of a liquid.

The ingredients below will make a four small or two large vanilla shakes but you can add the chocolate or strawberry option if you desire.

4 cups vanilla ice cream
2 cups milk
4 teaspoons chocolate sauce (optional)
1 cup fresh or frozen strawberries

  1. Place milkshake glasses into the freezer. Using cold glasses will help the shake stay cool to give you time to enjoy. Leave for up to an hour if possible.
  2. Soften ice cream. It is easier to make a shake when the ice cream is slightly soft. Take the ice cream out of the freezer a few minutes before making your shake.
  3. Place the ingredients into a blender.  Mix the ice cream, milk and added flavors into the blender. Blend on high for one minute. Don’t leave in the blender for longer or the shake will melt quickly.
  4. Pour shakes into frosty glasses. Take the glasses out of the freezer as soon as the blending is complete. Then pour the shake mixture in.
  5. Drop a straw into the shake, then enjoy. You can sip a shake right from the glass but somehow the straw adds to the flavor and the experience.

Enjoying a cool milkshake on a hot day may remind you of days gone by when you sipped a concoction at a diner with your best girl. It may even be a treat that brings back memories of favorite family holidays. Whatever your reasons for desiring a milkshake, you can make and enjoy one anytime with these instructions.
