5 Milkshake Recipes

July  1, 2015

This article was brought to you by our friends at Real California Milk, in honor of National Ice Cream Month

There are only a few ways that ice cream can be improved (not that it needs any improvement). One is to make a sundae; the other is to make a milkshake. And although sundaes are great, they require so many more ingredients than milkshakes.

Milkshakes are one of the greatest drinks known to man, even if they’re only sort of a drink (since sometimes you need a spoon). And the best part is how easy they are to make -- at their most basic, milkshakes are just ice cream and milk. In honor of National Dessert Month, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite milkshake recipes. So grab your blenders and get shaking.

I put chocolate chips in 95% of the things I make and am a strong proponent for lunch dessert.
