I didn't always love Nutella (gasp)! But now I can't get enough of it.
It is my favorite in crepes with strawberries. Oh yum!
So after I made my Chocolate Milkshake, I knew that I needed to follow up with a Nutella Milkshake. And let me tell you, this Nutella milkshake does not disappoint!
It is creamy, rich and absolutely delicious. So grab a few ingredients and make this milkshake today!
Can you make a milkshake with a mixer?
Yes, you sure can. Because this milkshake doesn't use ice cream with bits in it, or any additions, you can use a milkshake maker or a blender for this recipe. Either really will work.
I tend to pull my milkshake maker out though when I am making milkshakes because it is super easy and clean up is a cinch too! And it won't crush any bits in the ice cream or that you want to add to your milkshake.
There are many blenders you can use for making smoothies and milkshakes, but I personally own the Vitamix 780 and think it is simply the best. I get smooth, consistent results every single time which is exactly what I want for all my smoothies! You can buy your own Vitamix 780 HERE.
It is not a commercial milkshake maker, but it gets the job done at a fraction of the cost and is better for making milkshakes then a blender if you want to keep the integrity of color and if you want a thick shake.
Can you make a milkshake without milk?
Of course, you can, but you will need some sort of liquid to mix with your ice cream. I would recommend using coconut milk, almond milk, soy milk or any other milk alternative for a milkshake.
If you are doing a fruit flavored milkshake, you can use fruit juice instead.
Water is another alternative but your milkshake may be slightly more icy and less creamy. Although it will still taste delicious.
Can I use water to make a milkshake?
You can, but your milkshake will not be as creamy as it would be if you used milk or a milk alternative like coconut milk, almond milk, soy milk etc.
Can you use a hand mixer to make a milkshake?
Yes, you can make a milkshake with a hand mixer. You will use the same ingredients, but you will put them in a container large enough to mix with a hand mixer, then mix away until fully blended.
- 4-6 scoops Chocolate Ice Cream
- ¼ cup Milk
- 4 Tablespoons Nutella
- More Nutella for drizzle (optional)
- Whipped Cream (optional)
- Place all ingredients into your blender.
- Blend on high until thoroughly combined and smooth. Do not over mix though as it can make the mixture runny.
- While blending, place a small amount of Nutella in a microwave safe dish and melt for about 30 seconds until slightly warm and runny.
- Pour into a glass, top with whipped cream and Nutella drizzle.
- And enjoy!
