Welcome to my homemade easy strawberry milkshake recipe.
I am a milkshake addict through and through. I have loved them for as long as I can remember. I used to have them at cafés or beach bars and they were part of growing up.
I also lived in a small seaside town that had a McDonalds right in the centre. It was in a perfect position for when you walked home from your Saturday job for a quick burger and I was always paying that little bit extra for you to have a milkshake with it.
The usual price was £2.88 but with a milkshake it came to £3.10. This made the perfect price when you were earning £2.00 an hour and if I wanted to, over the week I could have several if I wanted to.
But what always drew me in was the milkshakes. They were perfectly chilled and you could have vanilla, chocolate, banana or strawberry. Though, I never knew who bought the vanilla ones as they were really boring. It was also before the super sizes that you now get all the time so you never had obese people eating there.
I would always choose between strawberry and banana and absolutely loved them.
Even when I met Dominic, in the summer when we were out in the car we would nip into a McDonalds drive through for a milkshake. His favourite was the manly chocolate variety and we would drink them so quick we would have brain freeze.
Though, when we moved to Portugal the worst thing happened. Apparently over here they have a different type of milk so France, Spain & Portugal don’t dish up McDonalds milkshakes. How sad is that?
So we always seem to have a lack of milkshakes with very few cafes offering them. A lot of them will offer smoothies but not really thick delicious milkshakes.
Therefore we have to make our own. And thanks to our amazing ice cream maker and our even better professional blender we can do exactly that.

In your blender add all your ingredients apart from the ice cream and blend well.
Add the ice cream along with a handful of ice cubes and blend again.
Serve in large milkshake glasses.
If you over do the amount of strawberries in the recipe then it can ruin the flavour. In strawberry milkshake less is actually more.
