Vanilla Milkshake Recipe for Everyone

Prep Time: 5 minutes or less
Servings: 1 serving

3 scoops of vanilla ice cream
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 teaspoons of sugar
1 1/2 cups of milk


Use a blender to mix together all of the ingredients listed above until they have a smooth, creamy texture.

Serve the milkshake in a tall glass with a straw, some whipped cream, and a maraschino cherry. Enjoy!

For Fewer Calories:

If you are trying to watch your weight, 2% milk and low-fat ice cream create a low-calorie milkshake alternative that you will love.

You can also try using frozen yogurt instead of ice cream, but expect a slightly thinner texture.

For Simplicity:

If you don't happen to have vanilla or sugar, simply blending vanilla ice cream with whole milk creates a simple but delicious vanilla milkshake.

For thicker Milkshakes:

Using less milk is an easy way to create thicker, richer milkshakes. After all, you're mostly eating liquefied ice cream! Yum!

For the Chocolate-Lover:

Some people just need a little chocolate to keep them going.

Simply add a good squirt of chocolate sauce for a hint of chocolately goodness in your vanilla milkshake.

For the Fruit-Lover:

Simply throw in some strawberries, bananas, or other fruits are another delicious way to mix it up, if you have a fruity crowd.

For Kids:

When serving a younger audience, smaller portion sizes are a must.

Simply cut this milkshake recipe in half for a child-sized version that they will love!

Make them for yourself, for your friends, or for your loved ones for a chilly treat that no one will turn down.
