I am all about making things more frugal. Last night when we were wanting some ice cream, I remembered a recipe that I had seen on the Hillbilly Housewife website for a Homemade Chocolate Shake called Magic Milkshakes. What caught my eye about this recipe was that it did not require the use of ice cream at all!
Ingredients for this milkshake included ice water, ice, unsweetened cocoa, powdered milk, sugar, vanilla, oil, and cooking spray. This recipe is straight from the Hillbilly Housewife
. I love all of her recipes.
As she says on her website, do not try to leave the last two ingredients out. They help everything stay together and they do not taste bad at all!
Don't forget to check out my recipe for this delicious homemade snow cone recipe also! It's the perfect frozen treat.
1 1/2 cups ice water
1 1/2 cups powdered milk
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 trays of ice cubes
- Add all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
The Hillbilly Housewife has a lot of great tips and tricks on her site for recipes that are easy to make, and light on your budget. This one is no exception.
It tastes just like a real chocolate shake and it can save a ton of money in the long run when you want a yummy summer time shake.
