Craving a refreshing and creamy delight? Look no further than this classic favorite – the Strawberry Milkshake. Originating from soda fountain days, this timeless treat has charmed taste buds for generations with its luscious blend of fresh strawberries, creamy vanilla ice cream, and a hint of vanilla extract.

Crafting this delightful concoction requires no master chef skills; it’s a beginner-friendly recipe that anyone can whip up in minutes.

With just a handful of ingredients and a blender, you’ll be on your way to savoring the smooth, fruity goodness of a homemade Strawberry Milkshake.

Expert Tip: Experiment with different extracts such as almond or coconut for unique flavor variations.


Strawberries: Bursting with vibrant color and natural sweetness, strawberries are the star of this milkshake. Their juicy texture and tangy flavor perfectly complement the creamy base, adding a refreshing twist to every sip. Packed with antioxidants and vitamin C, strawberries not only enhance the taste but also offer a nutritious boost to this indulgent treat.

Milk: Providing the creamy foundation for our milkshake, whole milk adds richness and smoothness to the blend. Its subtle flavor harmonizes with the other ingredients, creating a velvety texture that coats the palate with each sip. Additionally, the milk serves to bind the flavors together, ensuring a well-balanced and satisfying beverage.

Ice Cream (Vanilla): Elevating the milkshake to creamy perfection, vanilla ice cream lends a luxurious texture and decadent flavor to the mix. Its creamy consistency blends seamlessly with the strawberries and milk, creating a velvety-smooth indulgence that is both comforting and delicious. The vanilla notes add depth to the shake, enhancing its overall taste and leaving you craving for more.

Vanilla Extract: Adding a touch of aromatic sweetness, vanilla extract infuses the milkshake with a subtle depth of flavor. Its warm, floral notes complement the fresh strawberries and creamy ice cream, elevating the taste profile and lending a hint of sophistication to this beloved classic. Just a teaspoon of vanilla extract is all it takes to enhance the overall indulgence of your homemade Strawberry Milkshake.

Expert Tip: For an extra creamy texture, use full-fat vanilla ice cream.
