Strawberry Milkshakes Cooking View

There just aren’t enough milkshakes in my world, as far as I’m concerned.  It’s not that I don’t like them of course.  On the contrary, I loove them.  It just rarely occurs to me to make them.  A month or so ago, we were hanging out at home on a low-key weekend evening when suddenly I had the idea to make strawberry milkshakes for dessert.  Such a simple makeover of his usual favorite strawberry ice cream and I was instantly the coolest mom ever in Andrew’s eyes.  Milkshakes are definitely that much sweeter when shared with giggling little ones, and simple enough for a spur-of-the-moment treat.  Happy Friday!

  • HAHAHA love the “Milkshake” song reference :-D

  • It’s so easy that it’s mind-boggling. Where did you get those awesome straws?

  • Yum! I haven’t had a strawberry milkshake in so long…I always seem to make smoothies. Thanks for this.

  • i love these! i am so impressed that you make the ice cream for all of your recipes from scratch- what would be your preferred brand if you didn’t?

    I honestly have no idea, I haven’t bought store-bought ice cream in over two years!

  • Delicious! We always opt for strawberry over chocolate and vanilla shakes so this is just perfect for us – double strawberry and all…yum!

  • These look oh-so yummy, and I love your presentation “plan B” with the napkins and straws, instead of the shot glasses. Thanks for sharing these, Annie!

  • Love, love the colors in your photo. Perfect for the subject. Can’t believe you haven’t bought ice cream at the store for two years. WOW!

  • Thanks…. I’m ordering some straws today. I love that they are made out of paper instead of plastic.

  • I Love it… I’m definitely going to try, I’m still a child even if I’m 30.



  • This looks so good. I also want to make that ice cream now!

  • Caroline L.

    This brings me back to my childhood when we would go get real milkshakes on Franklin Street in NC!

  • annieseats

    Well, thank you very much!

  • Sue Michaels

    Love this! I adore that strawberry ice cream recipe- this looks even better! PS- How funny that the comments saying they are from a year ago?

  • annieseats

    Actually they are that old! This was an older post that I updated with new text and a prettier picture because I thought it deserved it :)

  • sweetsugarbelle

    Bernie loves basic strawberry milkshakes like this!!!

  • I was wondering that too! This picture sure is gorgeous and I want that shake right now!

  • Gorgeous shot! That strawberry ice cream is one of my favorites of yours. I used it to make the icecream-brownie-ganache cupcakes that you posted a long time ago, and everyone who ate them said they were the most amazing things ever :) I’ve made them three times total, and they never get old. I can imagine how awesome it would be in a milkshake, too!

  • I’m so in love with this picture.

  • annieseats

    Aw, thank you!

    This recipe is pretty easy and quick. I tried it today with vanilla icecream and frozen raspberries and it tasted very good. Love it! :)
