Let's Make a Shake, Step by Step

Darth Vader

Everyone loves drinking shakes. They are rich to the taste, creamy, icy delights, which are perfect to enjoy together with your partner. There's no season for a well-made shake. You can enjoy one while eating a burger with fries or experience the same satisfaction while drinking one instead of eating dessert.

Here's the recipe for preparing the perfect milkshake, step-by-step, plus a few ideas for delicious alternatives of the beverage. You need just 5 min. to prepare and 2 min. for the actual making of the shake.

The required ingredients are 3 teaspoons vanilla ice cream, 1/5 cup milk, chocolate, strawberries or caramel syrup (optional), vanilla extract (optional), frozen fruits of your choice, 3 biscuits (optional), 1 bonbon cut into little pieces (optional).

Step 1 - choose quality products

Choose a quality vanilla ice cream. Almost all types of shakes use it as their foundation. The milk needs to be full fat so that the beverage is thick and has a thick cream.

Step 2 - prepare the products

strawberry Shake

To prepare the perfect shake, the ice cream needs to be slightly melted. The perfect temperature for this goal is 45°F (7°C). If you start to whip the ice cream with the milk while it's still frozen, the result won't be a very good one. Never put ice in the shake because it'll just make it watery and the beverage will lose part of its taste and aroma.

Step 3 - making the shake and measurements

Put 3 scoops of ice cream in a blender. Add the milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, as well as the rest of the remaining ingredients you've chosen to add. Turn the blender on for 1 min. If you do not have one, mix the products in a large bowl and stir for 3 min.

Step 4 - decoration

Pour the prepared shake in a tall, chilled glass. Decorate with strawberries, chocolate syrup or grated bonbons. Serve with a straw and spoon.

Tips and tricks

To make a chocolate shake add 1/5 cup of chocolate syrup to the aforementioned products before you blend/stir. Depending on your preference, you can substitute the chocolate with a banana, 5 strawberries, malt syrup.
