Milkshakes are an ideal drink for any time of the day. Whether you are having friends over for coffee or enjoying your favorite meal at home, having a milkshake is simple and delicious. Milkshake recipes can be found all over the internet and they have become increasingly popular over the past few years. The key to creating a good milkshake is to create one with high quality ingredients. Here are some great ideas for milkshake recipes you can try at home.
For the easiest no-ice cream milkshake, just mix heavy cream, milk, and vanilla extract together until smooth. If you desire a creamy, super-creamy milkshake opt for equal parts milk and heavy cream. You can make a milkshake by simply blending three ingredients: heavy cream, milk and ice. This recipe uses an entire cup of milk which can be reduced in both quantity and frequency to make it easier to make a delicious milkshake. Simply add ice to make a milkshake without ice cream.
You can make a delicious milkshake without ice cream by quickly blending yogurt, evaporated cane juice, and sour cream in a blender until smooth and creamy. To add some fun to this recipe you can also add cooked egg whites or yogurt or a combination of both. You can prep time and cook time for this recipe as well. Depending on how long you cook it will depend on how long it will take for your dessert.
The chocolate malt from which your chocolate milkshake without ice cream is made is the same type of chocolate used in many different types of milkshakes. The chocolate malt has a low Glycemic Index. This means it will help keep your blood sugar level constant and prevent spikes. If you have diabetes, the lower the GI means the less likely you are to experience a spike in blood sugar. It helps people who have certain conditions like hypoglycemia.
A banana milkshake without ice cream is made with five minutes to prepare the ingredients. Combine the following ingredients: banana, one cup of milk, two tablespoons of vanilla, two tablespoons of honey, and two to three bananas. Blend all ingredients together until smooth and spreadable. You may need a food processor to get the mixture into a smooth consistency. Add a few drops of water if the shake is too thick.
For the apple milkshake you will need: three whole apple pieces, a half cup of milk that is not cold, two tablespoons of honey, one tablespoon of vanilla, and approximately four to five ounces of milk. Combine all ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour into a bowl and chill until ready to serve. To make a ripe banana shake for an authentic banana flavor add enough milk to make a pudding-like consistency and stir in the dry ingredients.
For a strawberry smoothie substitute the vanilla extract for a thicker consistency that can be stirred into the smoothie according to the package directions. To add ice cream you will need to add two to three frozen strawberries, approximately one tablespoon of instant cream or yogurt, and about two to three tablespoons of sugar. Mix all ingredients together until smooth and spreadable. If you would like to add more sweetness you may do so by adding confetti or chocolate chips.
These recipes are not only easy to make but they are also good for your waistline because they take very little effort. If you have trouble blending your own fruits and vegetables, which I believe is the case with most of us, then you may want to purchase a good blender that has a whisk or a combination function. The longer whisk you use, the more powerful the flavors become. This will also add a depth of flavor to the smoothies.
