Almost everyone loves milkshakes. June 20 is National Vanilla Milkshake Day, so make yourself and your every member of your family a tall glass and celebrate. Make sure you serve it the traditional way with whipped cream and a cherry on top.
A classic vanilla milkshake is one of America’s beloved beverages. We have often seen it in the movies and on television when sweethearts and friends drink it at a diner. Your parents probably made it for you when you were young. Now you can make it for yourself since the recipe is quick and easy. The most important ingredient is vanilla ice cream. The other ingredients are some you probably already have in your kitchen. You will need milk, half & half, vanilla extract and sugar. Simply pour the milk, ice cream, and half & half in a blender and partially blend, then add the sugar and flavoring until thoroughly mixed. Milkshakes are usually served in a tall glass with a straw, and whipped cream may be added as a topping.
Full-service restaurants, soda fountains, and diners usually prepare and mix the shake by hand from scoops of ice cream and milk in a blender or drink mixer using a stainless steel cup. Many fast food outlets do not make shakes by hand with ice cream. Instead, they make shakes in automatic milkshake machines which freeze and serve a pre-made milkshake mixture consisting of milk, a sweetened flavoring agent, and a thickening agent.
The creamy delicious and cold beverage is a tasty treat and easy for anyone to enjoy. Several popular milkshake flavors include vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. Remember, however, that June 20 is National Vanilla Milkshake Day, so let your milkshake today be vanilla. Save the other flavors for another day.
