Do you like to make your own milkshakes?

Basically, For some reason at my house we thought we were out of ice cream three separate times and we bought a tub of ice cream each time but no one was eating it. So I just decided fuck it. I'm making a milkshake.
Do you like to make your own milkshakes?

  • Yes! I've done this, SO tasty! How about this life hack: use crumbled Cheezits in place of Saltines for soup and chili!

    Your family sounds like my family. They buy something, it gets shoved way into the back of the fridge/freezer, they can't be bothered to dig, assume they don't have any, go buy more. It's wasteful and disgusting, and I hate it. They might be rich, but I'm frugal, doing take more than I need, and don't waste anything if I can help it.

  • Sure they're easy to make and tasty, better then going to a drive through and paying 5$.

  • I work at an ice cream store, so I'm making those delish little guys all day! (And eating any leftovers if I'm feeling it.) But I'm really good and getting the right consistency of "not too thick that it can't go through the straw," and "what is this? Did she just let the ice cream melt?" Since I know my stuff and make them so often. Making milkshakes is kind of a science. It's trial and error and tons of estimation. It all depends on the quality and consistency of the ice cream that you're working with. And also how frozen vs. how soft it is at the time that you're preparing the shake. For example, a rich chocolate ice cream will need a bit more cream vs a rich vanilla, since vanilla is simply less "thick" due to the actual vanilla in the ice cream being more thin compared to the chocolate. BUT, on the other hand, if I was making a shake out of the same two flavors, and the chocolate had been left out for a while and the vanilla was just taken out of the freezer, the vanilla would probably be much tougher or about the same consistency as the chocolate. So I'll take note of this and adjust how I use my ingredients. Meanwhile, vegan shakes and vegan Icecream is a whole other boat. I work with rice milk vegan flavors and soy milk flavors. The soy milk is definitely much more thick than the rice milk ones. So it's all about adjustment and using the right amount. I usually don't put as much liquid in the blender if it's a much thinner ice cream.

    Wow this just turned into a tutorial 😅✌🏼️ Anyways, hope this was helpful somehow! :)

  • Back when I could have dairy, I used to make my own milkshakes. They're so good!

    It's easier and healthier to make them at home because you can control what you put into them.

    I also like making smoothies at home too.

  • I never use Ice cream in my milkshakes, they always come out way too thick & greasy for my digestive system I can't even have those at ice cafes :/
    I usually use water ice, soy milk, extracts & the actual main ingredient (usually banana because I love banana milkshakes, sometimes vanilla)

    • Thats sad.

      I love milkshakes

    • Show All
    • I've tried a coconut one but the consistency was really shitty & I don't like ice cream in general so I don't really care - they taste a lot better with soy milk and water ice in my opinion, you should try it sometime

  • Without ice cream and ice? Definitely. I make banana + milk smoothie/milkshake every morning pretty much. Sometimes I add strawberries or raspberries when those are in season.
