Strawberries, vanilla ice cream, cream cheese, and milk all come together to make this incredible Strawberry Milkshake! Perfect for summer! While you have the blender out, you must try my *AMAZING* Tropical Smoothie recipe. Your whole family will love it!
Add Cream Cheese to Your Milkshake?
This Strawberry Milkshake was something I made on a whim as a fun afternoon treat. Oh, my word. I forgot how delicious, fun, easy, fabulous, and amazing milkshakes are. By adding cream cheese to the blender, it brings this milkshake to the next level of tangy and creamy! Yum!
How to Make a Strawberry Milkshake
Just 5 simple ingredients to make the best strawberry milkshake you’ve ever had. For full details on how to make a Strawberry Milkshake, see the recipe card down below 🙂
Add Ingredients to Blender
Start off with some milk in your blender and add in strawberries and cream cheese.
Scoop in some vanilla bean ice cream into the blender too. Don’t be afraid to be heavy handed with the ice cream.
What kind of milk is best to use for milkshakes?
I would recommend using whole milk or 2% milk for milkshakes. For a creamy and smooth milkshake, you need the higher fat content that skim milk offers. You can use a vanilla greek yogurt or a plant based milk, like almond milk. It will alter the taste and texture slightly, but will still be delicious!
Can I use other berries?
Short answer- Yes. I mean it won’t be a strawberry milkshake anymore, but you can use whatever berries you have on hand and choose to use. You could even add a couple different berries (1 cup total) for a different version.
Blend Until Creamy + Smooth
Secure the lid and blend until smooth! Add as much or as little milk as you’d like to get desired consistency.
Pour into Glasses + Garnish with Whipped Cream and Fresh Strawberries
Pour into serving glasses and top with whipped cream (or make your own homemade whipped cream) and fresh strawberries. Perfection right here. If you like my strawberry milkshake on the thick side, use a spoon, but feel free to add more milk and use a straw.
Storing Leftover Strawberry Milkshake
While I highly recommend enjoying your milkshake right after you make it, you can store leftovers for later! Simply put any remaining milkshake in an airtight, freezer safe container and store in the freezer. Strawberry Milkshakes will stay fresh and tasty in the freezer for 1-2 months. After that, they don’t taste as good as they did on day one.
To revive your frozen milkshake, remove from the freezer and allow it to sit on the counter for 5-10 minutes. Stir and enjoy.
