Milkshakes are one of our favorite ice cream treats. Made from a base of milk and ice cream, this dairy-centric dessert allows for all kinds of flavor variations to suit the preferences of whoever will be drinking it.
Looking for ideas to make milkshakes that go beyond the traditional chocolate and vanilla flavors? Here are three great ingredients to try.
The world’s favorite cookie to drink in milk, unsurprisingly, also goes great when incorporated into milkshakes. The chocolate cookie breaks into small chunks that spread throughout the milkshake, imbuing the dessert with a crispy, chocolately essence that you’ll love.
One of our favorite milkshake combinations is fresh strawberries with vanilla ice cream. Evoking the classic strawberries and cream dessert, the sweetness and slightly tangy flavor of strawberries blends perfectly inside of a milkshake.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
According to a recent survey, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are the favorite candy of 38% of Americans. It’s no surprise, then, that this peanut butter and chocolate candy also goes great inside of a milkshake. You can make it with chocolate or vanilla ice cream, depending on whether you want a chocolate-heavy or a more peanut-butter focused treat.
