This is how we make milkshakes here. My oldest is the official milkshake maker of the family. I'd actually never watched him do this because I didn't want to become the official milkshake maker.
This is a very flexible recipe, obviously, and it's the number one reason my husband wanted to get a blender. I love these. The ice cream bars here are really good, but the regular bulk vanilla ice cream is nasty, and I'd rather eat this.
Here's what you'll need:
- A bag of frozen whole milk
- Stuff to make it taste good (fruit, nuts, cocoa, sugar, mint)
- A blender
|Meanwhile, my son was grinding up some peppermints and cocoa and sugar. I have no idea what the proportions are because he doesn't measure. I'm so proud.|
|And adding vanilla.|
|And blending everything together. We like chocolate mint shakes, but you can use a million different things. Use your imagination.|
|Add the milk. You can see it's not a rock, but it's still pretty frozen.|
|Break it up some.|
|Add a little milk (more or less as needed, and depending on your blender).|
|And poke and blend. Sometimes we melt a bar of dark chocolate and add it at the very end while the blender is running. The chocolate re-solidifies quickly in little tiny bits throughout the whole thing. That's my favorite.|
