Thick & Creamy Milkshake Recipe

Creamy Vanilla Milkshakes are perfect for Summer!

After a hot summer day, a creamy milkshake really hits the spot. My grandparents used to talk about the diners and drive-ins that served real, handmade shakes — for less an a quarter! The cost of a real shake today is quite a bit higher and not as easy to find. So, why not make them at home? It’s easy enough to get the entire family involved.

Shakes can be customized by flavor or candy additions/sprinkles to match any event you have planned. They’re a fun activity for sleepovers, baby showers, birthdays, and more like this Little Mermaid Ice Cream Sipper!

Creamy Vanilla Milkshakes

Ingredients & Supplies You’ll Need:

Ramekin Bowls
1/3 c. rainbow sprinkles
¼ c. mini-chocolate chips*
3 c. vanilla ice cream
1 t. real vanilla extract
1/3 c. whole milk**
Milkshake Glasses

*Can use full size chocolate chips, but will take a little longer to melt. Use additional chocolate chips if not using a ramekin

**Plus extra to achieve desired consistency, if desired

Instructions:

Pour rainbow sprinkles onto a shallow plate. Place a small ramekin, topside down, inside a small bowl wide enough to fit the top of each serving glass, as shown.

Pour the mini-chocolate chips around the ramekin. (If unavailable, add one-half cup chocolate chips directly to the bowl). Microwave on 50% power just until the chips melt, approximately 2-3 minutes. Check after 90 seconds to determine total microwave time.

Remove from microwave and carefully break up any remaining solid pieces of chocolate with a fork. Dip the tops of each glass into the melted chocolate, and then roll the chocolate-coated edge in the rainbow sprinkles. Roll each glass edge until uniformly coated. Turn upright and set aside to dry.  

Add the ice cream, vanilla extract, and milk to a blender and blend until smooth. Add a little additional milk to reach the desired consistency, if desired.

To serve, pour the milkshake into the prepared glasses and top with whipped cream, additional sprinkles, and a maraschino cherry. Enjoy!
