10 Marvelous Milkshake Ideas to Try

Jul 11, 2017

Milkshakes are quite arguably one of the best treats ever. It is a drink, it is a dessert, and it is everything. Making milkshakes at home is easy. Just pull out your trusty blender, add in your ingredients and blend your way to creamy dreamy temptations.

Sure, banana, chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry milkshakes are classics that no one will turn down, but if you really want to take your milkshake making skills to the next level without any additional skills, you have got to try these ten magnificent milkshakes the next time you want to mix things up at home.

1 S’Milkshakes

Gather around the campfire with s’mores in milkshake form. It is safe to say that if you love s’more everything, then you will love these s’milkshakes. To make them, you will need to line a baking sheet with foil, place 8 marshmallows on it and broil away until browned to your liking. That means keeping a vigilant eye on your broiler, but it will be worth it.

Meanwhile, take a pint of chocolate ice cream, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 1/4 cup of milk, and a pinch of salt and get them into the blender. When the marshmallows are finished toasting, toss 6 of them into the blender. Blend until milkshake perfection is achieved. Pour into glasses and top with a toasted marshmallow and crushed graham crackers.

2 Lemon Meringue Pie Shakes

The iconic pie, now in fabulous liquid form. To make it, you will need to add 1 cup of lemon sorbet, 1 cup of vanilla frozen yogurt, 2 tablespoons of lemon curd and a 1/4 cup of milk in your blender.

Then, turn to your mixer where you will beat 2 egg whites with 2 tablespoons of sugar until they get that nice, stiff meringue look. Pour the milkshakes into glasses and then top with the meringue. Use a kitchen torch to lightly brown the meringue for the finishing touch.

3 Raspberry Radiance Shake

There is something so decadent about raspberries. They are rich, tart, and tangy, and in creamy milkshake form, they are out of this world. To make it, add a cup of raspberry sorbet, a cup of vanilla frozen yogurt, 1/2 cup of raspberries (fresh or frozen), and 1/4 cup of milk and blend away. Once smooth, pour into glasses. Garnish with a mint leaf if desired.

4 Key Lime Pie Shake

Floridians will tell you there is nothing better than a key lime pie. Agreed, though a key lime pie milkshake comes in close second. Drink your key lime pie by blending 1 pint of vanilla frozen yogurt, juice from 6 Key limes (and the zest from them too) and 1/2 cup of milk. After pouring into glasses, top with crushed graham crackers. Yum!

5 Cannoli Milkshake

Holy cannoli! There is a milkshake for that. Cannolis might just be one of the most perfect Italian desserts of all time. Make them into a milkshake for a whole new way to love cannolis.

You will need to add the following to your blender to make this magic happen: 2 cups ricotta cheese, 1/4 milk, 1 pint vanilla frozen yogurt, 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar, a dash of cinnamon and 2 tablespoons of candied orange peel (chopped).

After pouring into glasses, add chocolate chips on top. If you want more chocolate chip flavor, add 3 tablespoons of chocolate chips into the blender with the other ingredients.

6 Hot Fudgy Coconut Milkshake

Did I have you at hot fudge? I bet I did. Make the most amazing milkshake of your life with this creamy coconut concoction with hot fudgy chocolate rippling through it. Game changer.

First, you will have to make hot fudge. To do that, you need to melt 1/2 of bittersweet chocolate (finely chopped) with 1/4 cup cream and 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk. Stir it frequently until it melts. Or go ahead and cheat and use the jarred hot fudge.

In your blender, you will add 1 pint of coconut ice cream with 1/4 cup of milk. In your glasses, layer in the milkshake with the hot fudge in alternating layers. Garnish it with toasted coconut shavings for a hit of texture.

7 Asian Red Bean Shake

In Asian countries, red bean is one of the most popular dessert fillings. It is sweet without being overly so, and it is a really unique taste that you will love if you are looking for an Asian twist.

Mix a pint of vanilla ice cream with 1/2 cup of canned Asian red beans (also known as azuki beans), 2 teaspoons of lemon juice, and 1/4 cup of milk. In your glasses, pour about 1/4 cup of cooked tapioca (the large pearl stuff) into each glass and then fill the glasses the remainder of the way with the milkshake blend.

8 Tiramisu Shake

Did I say cannolis were the best Italian dessert? Well, Italy definitely stole my dessert heart away. Tiramisu is another Italian dessert that makes for an amazing milkshake flavor. In a 1/2 cup of coffee, soak 6 ladyfingers.

Blend them and pour them into the bottom of each glass. Next, blend a cup of coffee with a cup of vanilla frozen yogurt and 1 tablespoon of milk plus 1 tablespoon of sweetened condensed milk. Pour into your glasses on top of the ladyfinger blend. Garnish with a dusting of cocoa powder.

9 Peanut Butter Cup Shake

Did they put the chocolate in the peanut butter or the peanut butter in the chocolate? No matter. Now you can do it too! Follow the same steps for making hot fudge from the Hot Fudge Coconut Milkshake above, or used the jarred variety.

Then make the milkshake by blending together a pint of vanilla ice cream, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1/4 cup milk, and a pinch of salt. Layer it in glasses, and do not forget to top it all off with chopped peanut butter cups.

10 Pumpkin Pie Shake

And finally, for someone who can’t wait until pumpkin everything explodes all over fall, try this. In a baking dish, take a half-stick of melted butter and mix with a cup of graham cracker crumbles. Bake for 8 minutes at 350F and allow to cool. In your blender, mix 1 pint pumpkin ice cream with Ѕ cup of milk. Pour into glasses and top with the toasted graham crackers.
