I hope you haven't gotten bored with another strawberry related post. I promise to move on once my strawberry supply has become nil :)
To make this milkshake more interesting, I added a layer of freshly blended strawberries with sugar at the bottom of the glass and then topped it with the milkshake. Add whipped cream at the end, you'll have a pretty satisfying milkshake!
The basic recipe for the milkshake layer is:
1 1/2 cups strawberries
1/2 pint vanilla ice cream
1/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon sugar, or to taste
Mix everything in a blender until smooth. Makes about 2 cups.
If for some reason you think the ice cream part is not enough, feel free to add some more. I like to taste it along the way to make sure I get it right. Again, there's no right or wrong way to make this; here's a glass to celebrate the summer of the year.
