Summer is here! Hooray, and what’s better than a refreshing milkshake in the morning, followed by a sunny day full of sunbathing and swimming? Because getting your morning boost from healthy foods is extremely important, we’ve done our research and have selected a few of the best milkshakes to wake you up and to start your day with a smile on the face. Make sure you keep reading so you know what to buy from the supermarket next time you’re going.
For anyone that loves sweet milkshakes but can’t function without their morning coffee, this recipe is perfect for you. All you’ll need for 4 portions of this tasty milkshake is 5 scoops vanilla ice cream (you can always go for low-calorie or vegan options), 75 ml milk (again, you could go for soy or oat milk), 1 teaspoon instant coffee granules and 5 ice cubes.
Just add all the ingredients in the blender and mix. If you’re craving a mocha shake, add some cocoa powder and enjoy this delicious and lovely treat.
Spiced Pumpkin Milkshake
It doesn’t necessarily have to be winter all the time, for you to enjoy the pumpkin spiced latte from Starbucks. Besides, why would you waste your money on it anyway, when you can make this fantastic milkshake at home, and enjoy it while on the way? For this milkshake, you’ll need 450 gr pumpkin puree, 475 ml milk, 4 tablespoons brown sugar and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon.
Again, add everything to the blender and mix, the ingredients are enough for 4 potions, so you can share them with your mum or mates because it’s so delicious that everyone will want some of it!
Cherry Vanilla Milkshake
For this delicious milkshake, which as you can guess, has cherries and vanilla in it, you’ll need 500 gr vanilla ice cream, 1 cup whole milk, 1/2 cup frozen cherries, and 1/2 tbsp. vanilla extract. Mix everything together and make sure to decorate with some whipped cream and an actual cherry on top, so it looks magnificent.
Mexican Chocolate Milkshake
You didn’t quite expect this milkshake, did you? For the lovers of spicy and interesting milkshakes, we suggest you try this recipe by buying 500 gr chocolate ice cream, 1 cup whole milk, 1/4 chocolate sauce, and 1/8 tbsp. cayenne pepper. Spicyyy!
Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Milkshake
Just by reading the name of this milkshake we’re getting tempted to just jump and make it ourselves. In order to make this for your next sleepover or family dinner, make sure you’ve got 500 gr chocolate ice cream, 1/2 cup frozen strawberries, 1 cup whole milk, 2 tbsp. chocolate chips. Mmmm!
Chocolate Marshmallow Milkshake
Now considering a few of the last recipes have mainly chocolate in them, we’re feeling slightly irresponsible for that, although, can you blame us? Who doesn’t love some good chocolate drink in the morning, especially now that it’s summer? Anyway, back to the recipe, prepare 500 gr chocolate ice cream, 1 cup whole milk, 1/2 cup marshmallow fluff, and 2 tbsp. chocolate chips. Let the magic happen! And don’t feel way too tempted to eat the tube of marshmallow fluff as we’ve done.
Milkshakes are underappreciated and we all need to start giving them more love. If one of your main concerns about our milkshake recipes are the calories or you’re following a diet, we recommend that you swap the ice creams for their low-calorie or vegan options that many supermarkets provide nowadays. As for the milk and the chocolate, you can always go for, as mentioned above, soy or oat milk and some dark chocolate.
We really hope that you liked the recipes. What do you think about them? Let us know.
