The Best Strawberry Milkshake

Hello my friends, I am so excited to share the best Strawberry Milkshake recipe with you today!  If you love milkshakes, you might also like my Mint Chocolate Chip Milkshake recipe or my Rasberry Chocolate Milkshake…both are delicious, but for a classic taste, you can never go wrong with a Strawberry Milkshake.  Strawberry milkshakes bring me back to my childhood.  Of course, those strawberry shakes were often filled with syrupy grossness and so I wanted to create something that was easy to make but also filled with good ingredients that would taste amazing.  So keep reading for the full recipe.

Homemade Strawberry Milkshake

The Best Strawberry Milkshake

When choosing ingredients for this milkshake, I was really careful to choose items that contain good ingredients.  I mean a milkshake isn’t exactly the most healthy thing to drink, but we definitely don’t need any added corn syrup or food coloring in this.

That is why I make my milkshake recipes with Breyers Ice Cream.  Breyers ice cream ingredient list is small and easy to understand: milk, strawberries, cream, sugar, whey and vegetable gum.

Yes I know there IS sugar in here, milkshakes aren’t healthy.  But these ingredients ARE better than most ice cream options out there.

I think good ingredients just taste better so that’s why I use their ice cream.  However, you can choose the ice cream brand of your choice with this recipe, I just wanted to share my two cents with you first 🙂

Thick Strawberry Milkshake Recipe

Nothing is better than a thick strawberry milkshake recipe, am I right?  But getting the right consistency can take a little time and practice.

More ice cream and less milk will give you a thicker consistency that may require a spoon to eat.  More milk and less ice cream will give you a thinner consistency that you could drink with a straw.  So feel free to change this recipe up to make it as thick or as thin as you like.

Can I Make a Strawberry Milkshake without Strawberries?

Yes.  You can.  But, why?  Without strawberries, to get a strawberry flavor you would need to use artificial flavorings and/or syrup.  And can we all just agree that those don’t taste very good and they also aren’t very good for you.  (I know, I am talking about milkshakes here which aren’t really good for you anyway so my line of reasoning may be on shaky grounds…but let’s just agree that real strawberries are best ok?)

Your milkshake will taste better if you use real strawberries or ice cream that has real strawberries in it.  So pick up that strawberry flavored syrup if you must, but ice cream with real strawberries in it will simply taste better.
