Milk Shake Recipe

Milk Shake Recipe


by Sandra Merville Hart

When the weather warms up, it’s time for ice cream and milk shakes, right?

I found this recipe for milk shakes that is easy to vary. If you have a blender, you can make this.

You will need:

2 scoops of your favorite ice cream for a single 16-ounce serving

¾ cup milk

½ teaspoon of vanilla extract OR 1 tablespoon of any syrup (your choice)

Ask your parents or another adult to help you make the milk shake.

I had chocolate truffle ice cream in my freezer so I made a chocolate truffle milk shake. Choose your ice cream.

Pour ¾ cup of milk into the blender. Add ice cream. Next, add the vanilla extract OR the syrup. I love the vanilla flavor so I chose the vanilla extract.

Replace blender lid and blend a few seconds or until desired consistency.

You can put a dollop of whipped cream on top if you like.

Also, there are many syrups that you could try instead—chocolate, caramel, peppermint, strawberry, or raspberry to name a few.
