Vanilla Milkshake II

Vanilla Milkshake II

Tara G. 0

"This is a quick and easy milkshake I created a few years back while I was bartending to serve the children that ate in the restaurant - their parents loved it just as much! This is a very versatile recipe. You can change the flavor of ice cream to create any flavor milkshake you'd like."

LOL I had to laugh at the reviewer who said that kids don't like vanilla extract. They obviously haven't met my 3-year-old who goes nuts over the stuff! At any rate, this is a great recipe. The half and half really makes this shake smoothe and creamy. We added a few strawberries and bananas for another version and it turned out just as good! Thanks for the recipe!


This was very creamy! Next time, I might add a tiny bit of vanilla bean instead of extract. All around good recipe, though. The use of half and half makes it much richer than most milkshake recipes I've tried so far.


Classic recipe! Smooth, rich, and creamy - definitely worthy of the last of my Haagen Daz ice cream. I did make mine a little thicker by using less half and half. Just like with any other recipe adjust to your tastes and you'll be sure to enjoy this cold delicious treat.
