Creamy Frosted Milkshakes

Food Creamy Frosted Milkshakes

Milkshakes is a classic American frosty treat. A creamy combination of ice cream and milk. It is a shake or a drink that is usually made by blending milk, ice cream, and flavorings or sweeteners such as butterscotch, caramel sauce, chocolate syrup, fruit syrup, or whole fruit into a thick, sweet, cold mixture. Super-thick milkshakes are often typically made with a milkshake machine. At home, a blender is more commonly used.

Milkshakes may be made from any flavor of ice cream which you like and some additional flavorings, such as chocolate syrup, malt syrup, or malted milk powder. Making a milkshake is honestly as simple as blending 3 ingredients. A generous portion of ice cream, a splash of milk, and some flavoring. To make perfect thick milkshake you need to be accurate with the ratio of ice cream and milk. Once you have the base of your shake perfected, you can add any flavoring ingredients your heart desires.

History Of Milkshakes 

The word “milkshake” first appeared in print in 1885. At this time, milkshakes were an eggnog-like drink made with whiskey. However, by the turn of the century, milkshakes were no longer alcoholic and were made with flavored syrups, such as vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry. By 1930, milkshakes referred to the sweet treat we know today, with ice cream, milk, and syrup blended together.

The evolution of this drink has a lot to do with the invention of electric blenders. Before blenders were widely available, milkshakes were hand-shaken, which is why they were an eggnog-like texture. In 1911, Hamilton Beach invented a drink mixer that was adopted by soda fountains, making milkshakes easier than ever to make. In 1922, Steven Poplawski invented the blender, and that was when milkshakes began to be made in their whipped, modern form.

In 1922 in Chicago, Walgreens employee Ivar “Pop” Coulson added vanilla ice cream to their usual malted milk drink, inventing the first malted milkshake. With time, it spread, making it one of the most popular drinks at soda fountains. In the 1930s, freon-cooled refrigerators were invented, making it possible to automate milkshakes safely. In 1936, Earl Prince invented the Multimixer, which was able to dispense five milkshakes simultaneously and automatically.

How To Make Perfect Thick Milkshakes 

  • Start by using full fat ice cream. In most cases, people are stick with vanilla ice cream try to use some other flavors like chocolate, strawberry, or butterscotch.  
  • One of the common mistakes people make with homemade milkshakes is using too much milk. You really just want a splash or a couple of ounces at the most. More than that will make the milkshake too runny. 
  • For an even thicker shake use heavy whipping cream for milk. 
  • Add flavor with chocolate syrup, fruit, or fun ingredients like cookie crumbles, candies or fruits it gives a nice texture to it.

Milkshake is a drink that can never say no by kids. So I am sharing kid’s favorite oreo milkshake recipe. It is a super easy milkshake made with vanilla ice cream, milk, and oreo cookies. To make it more flavorful I have added chocolate sauce which will make this oreo shake more exciting.

It is a very simple recipe by combing the ingredients and blend until your desired consistency is reached. If you want your shakes to have a few chunks of cookie, then just pulse a few times in the blender. If you are a major chocolate fiend then you can use chocolate ice cream instead of vanilla ice cream. 

Oreo Chocolate Milkshakes


  • Vanilla ice cream 2 cups
  • Milk 2/3 cup
  • Oreo cookies 8
  • Chocolate sauce 2 tbsp


  • Add ice cream, milk, and oreo cookies in a blender. Pulse until it becomes smooth. Reserve 1 cookies for garnishing.
  • Take a glass and drizzle chocolate sauce on the edges on the glass.
  • Now pour the milkshake on the glass top it with cookies and drizzle of chocolate sauce.
