This recipe is a bit different from all the others on my blog, but I thought why not try something a bit different. I was inspired to make a milkshake when I was having a scroll through Pinterest. There are so many different flavour combinations and ways to decorate them.

I decided to start with a Strawberry milkshake. Strawberry is my favourite flavour of milkshake and I thought it would be an easy one to trial. I have never made my own milkshake before so I wasn’t sure how it would turn out but I was very surprised. I done a lot of research into making milkshakes and decided to make it using strawberry ice-cream and milk blended together in a blender.

I decorated the milkshake as over the top as I could but I wanted to stick with the Strawberry flavour, so I used mini strawberry doughnuts and a fresh strawberry. Finally I topped it off with a paper straw. You could use this recipe but with any flavour.

This recipe makes 2 milkshakes 

Ingredients 

4 Scoops of Strawberry Milkshake

Semi-Skimmed Milk

300ml Double Cream

Decorations

Methods 

  1. Scoop two-three scoops of ice cream into a blender and mix with milk. To determine how much milk you need, it really depends on how big your glasses are. All you need to do is three-quarter fill them with milk and then pour the milk into the blender with the strawberry ice-cream.
  2. Blend until the mixture is smooth and pour into your glass.
  3. Whip the double cream until it has soft peaks. Pipe on the top of your milkshake.
  4. Finally finish with any decoration you choose. I decorated mine with a strawberry, some strawberry doughnuts and a paper straw.

Tips and Tricks 

Add some food colouring to your double cream to make your milkshake more bright and colourful. This will make the double cream a bit looser.

Use any flavour ice cream you choose it doesn’t have to be Strawberry

As this contains milk and cream, drink as soon as possible as it will not keep.
