Homemade Strawberry Milkshake

There’s just something so nice about a homemade shake. I decided to treat my family to shakes after dinner. I grabbed some vanilla ice cream, milk, fresh strawberries, and vanilla then blended them together to make a thick and creamy strawberry shake. Needless to say, they were a HUGE hit. I love that they took 5 minutes to make and put such huge smiles on my favorite faces.

Combine the vanilla ice cream, milk, fresh strawberries, and vanilla extract together in a large blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. Pour into glasses and serve with a strawberry garnish and a straw. Enjoy immediately.

    I like the addition of vanilla extract to your milkshakes. This is a great summer dessert, and sure to be a big summer afternoon treat, while the kids are home enjoying their time off!

    So funny, my husband just requested that I make him a milkshake last night! He asked for chocolate, but personally I’d prefer this strawberry shake…esp with the fresh fruit! It looks SO yummy and refreshing on a hot day.

    It’s been more than 20 years since I had a homemade milkshake and I know this version made with fresh ripe berries is about as good as it gets.

    Strawberry was my favorite ice cream flavor growing up, and though I don’t eat it as much any more it will always have some serious nostalgia factor for me. Love this shake!
