Notes

  1. For a creamy milkshake, make sure you use full fat ice cream and whole milk. 
  2. For a thicker milkshake, add 1 cup of ice to the ingredients in the blender. If doing so, serve the milkshake immediately. 
  3. To make this recipe a bit healthier, use frozen yogurt instead of ice cream. 
  4. For dairy free vanilla milkshake, use dairy free ice cream and milk such as almond, cashew or oat milk.
