    Simple Vanilla Milkshake Recipe

    I love unexpected nights like this. And what makes a good night even better is an amazing milkshake! A no-frills, basic, vanilla milkshake recipe that you can just slowly sip as you dissolve into your alter ego.

    As always, it tastes best with homemade ingredients, like homemade vanilla ice cream. If you don’t have much time, you can always use store bought ice cream, of course.

    Add whipped cream, mini chocolate chips and a Pirouette Cookie.

    No big blender to get out, an immersion blender works great for this vanilla milkshake. Simply blend and then wash it, and it’s the perfect size for one sweet drink!

    Flavor it up

    Make your own milkshake version and whip up your favorite flavor of milk and ice cream. Grab what you have in the freezer and treat yourself. Chocolate, strawberry, candy cane, rum raisin, mint chip – it’s ALL GOOD!

    You can also spike your milkshake! Add a shot of vodka or rum and really relax! Add a dash of Baily’s or Kahula or add a shot of Schnapps for some zing! It’s completely up to you how you want to make your milkshake. The point is just to make it.
