If you are planning to make your very own vanilla milk shake, read on to learn how to make one.
- Take out the things you will need. You will need vanilla ice cream, milk, vanilla extract, ice, whipped cream, chocolate syrup, a tall glass and blender. Prep the blender by washing thoroughly with water and soap. Check your fridge if you still have vanilla ice cream left over from last time. You can substitute milk for half-and-half if you want your shake to be thick and fluffy. Vanilla extract can be bought from any grocery store. They come in small and big bottles. To avoid wastage, buy only a small bottle of vanilla extract.
- Start blending. Before putting on anything, blend the ice until very fine. Add in a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Blend well until soft and fluffy. Since the ice cream is from the freezer, it is better to blend it first before putting the milk to ensure its softness and no hard ice cream is left. Or you can take the vanilla ice cream out from the freezer at least a half hour before to let it melt. This way you will not have to blend it separately. Next, add a glass of milk and blend with the first two ingredients. While the milk is being blended, add three to five drops of vanilla extract into the blender. This will enhance the taste of vanilla of your milk shake. Taste your milk shake and see if you are satisfied with its taste. You can adjust its consistency by adding or reducing milk and ice cream. If you want your shake to be more thick and creamy, add in more vanilla ice cream. Adding more milk will make your shake more watery.
- Pour. Once you have made adjustments to your vanilla milk shake, pour into a tall glass and top with whipped cream. Add chocolate syrup on top of the whipped cream. You can either sip it from a straw or drink it directly from the glass. Serve and enjoy.
