I totally LOVE milkshakes. Now that I can make them at home, there is really no need to get one from a fast food or ice cream joint. In my family’s opinion — they are even better from MY kitchen.
The ingredients are all pantry staples and they are made without ice cream 🙂 This recipe for homemade vanilla milkshakes without ice cream is a home run!
The fun thing about making something like this is that you can add any flavors you want to it. Some of mine are chocolate, strawberry, caramel, coffee flavored and more.
- 2 cups ice
- 2 cups of milk
- ⅔ cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 tablespoons corn oil plus a 5-second squirt of non-stick spray for emulsification purposes
- Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until well incorporated. DO NOT leave out the oil. You will thank me later 🙂 If you want a thicker shake, add more ice. For thinner shakes, just add more milk.
I originally found this recipe on the Hillbilly Housewife website and started playing around with it a bit. I have added strawberries, hot Fudge, pineapple, mint and green food coloring — you can totally play around with this and make some really delicious tasting shakes, but vanilla is always my favorite.
What about you? Have you ever made any milkshakes at home?
