This easy homemade milkshake recipe is a tasty way to enjoy a gourmet tasting milkshake in minutes without having to spend the high price of a specialty milkshake out!
Milkshakes are usually delicious, but it’s so expensive to buy them at a specialty ice cream store. Don’t waste your money spending too much for someone else to make it when you make it yourself for a lot less in minutes.
Here’s an easy milkshake recipe you can use to make homemade milkshakes that taste just as good as the expensive specialty milkshakes. Thi recipe includes chopped bits of candy bars, so it is a perfect way to use leftover candy after holidays like Valentine’s Day Halloween or Christmas.
A milkshake is really just a mixture of ice cream and milk, so it’s easy to make a basic milkshake just by blending together your favorite flavor of ice cream and some milk until you get the right consistency. This candy bar milkshake recipe calls for chocolate or vanilla ice cream, but you can easily modify it by using your favorite flavor of ice cream.
You can use any kind of candy bars you like, so feel free to experiment! You can also add your favorite fruit like cherries or strawberries. If you keep the consistency thick, you will end up with something like a homemade blizzard. If you prefer your milkshake thinner, you can add more milk.Print
