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. So yes — you can make a milkshake without ice cream. Here’s how simple it is.
How to Make Homemade Vanilla Milkshakes Without Ice Cream
- 2 cups ice
- 2 cups of milk
- 2/3 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 have played around with this recipe quite a bit over the years. I have made many variations from it — chocolate milkshakes without ice cream, oreo milkshakes, and more. 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.
Making your own milkshakes at home are simple and easy to do. You really don’t need a milkshake maker if you have the ingredients listed above as well as a blender. You are good to go to make your own homemade vanilla milkshakes without ice cream!
