  • 2 cups ice cream
  • ½ cup whole milk


  • Leave the ice cream out for 10 minutes to soften a bit.
  • Place the ice cream and milk in the blender. Add extra ingredients such as cookies, fruit or sauces if desired.
  • Blend on low for 1 to 2 minutes until fully combined and creamy.
  • Divide between two chilled glasses and top with whipped cream and your desired toppings.


  • You can add different flavor add-ins such as mango, strawberries, blueberries, bananas, chocolate sauce, fudge sauce, caramel sauce and cookies to the milkshake. 
  • Chilling the glasses in the fridge or freezer before serving the milkshake will keep them extra cold. 
  • For a thicker milkshake, use heavy cream instead of milk.
