We’ve got a bumper crop of strawberries this year in our garden. More than we’ve ever had before and we’re loving it. Just about every other day we’ve got a bowl full like this!
So the other day I asked on Facebook for some suggestions on what to make with all my strawberries and you had some great ideas. I decided to go with a fresh strawberry milkshake.
Here in the NW we have a local burger franchise called Burgerville and every May/June they have fresh strawberry shakes that are amazing. I wait all year for those delicious shakes like a lot of other Northwesterners. Well I no longer have to make a trip to Burgerville. I can make a fresh strawberry shake at home that is just as good (if not better!) And it doesn’t get much fresher than a milkshake made with strawberries from my own back yard!
The strawberry shake is ice cream, milk, strawberries and I also throw in a couple of Tablespoons of sugar for good measure.
Then just mix it up in the blender and add some whipped cream on top, a strawberry for garnish and a straw.
Then all that is left to do is enjoy!
For other frosty ice cream drinks try:
Fresh Strawberry Milkshake
- 1 1/2 C fresh strawberries
- 2 C vanilla ice cream
- 1/4 C milk add more to thin out the milkshake if desired.
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- Put all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.
