Ingredient details

  • vanilla ice cream : it is the key ingredient of the milkshake! I advise you to take quality ice cream because it will taste better in a milkshake.
  • milk : I opt for whole milk because the result is very creamy. Otherwise, you can also choose semi-skimmed milk.
  • vanilla : to enhance the vanilla taste, I add the seeds of a vanilla pod. You can take powdered vanilla beans instead, or failing that, a little vanilla extract.
  • chantilly : it's optional but so greedy! You can make homemade whipped cream (put in a piping bag) or whipped cream, it's as you prefer.
  • chocolate sprinkles : for the decoration of the vanilla milkshake, you can really put what makes you happy, like these chocolate vermicelli for example.

How to make a vanilla milkshake?

  1. Scrape the grains vanilla bean
  2. Put the milk, ice cream and vanilla beans in the bowl of the blender/food processor
  3. Mixer the whole
  4. Pour into tall glasses
  5. Add a dose of chantilly
  6. Sprinkle with chocolate sprinkles
  7. Dip his straw in the vanilla milkshake
  8. Enjoy immediately!

NB: the complete recipe and the quantities of ingredients are given to you at the bottom of the page.

My advice for a successful vanilla milkshake

  • if the ice cream is too hard to scoop out with a spoon: leave it for a few moments on the work surface from the kitchen.
  • blend the vanilla milkshake on low speed : this helps to loosen the ice cream and mix it evenly with the milk.
  • the ideal texture is one that can be poured into glasses (neither too runny nor too thick). personally, I like to keep a little consistency because the milkshake tends to melt quickly afterward at room temperature.

Possible variations for this milkshake

To decorate the vanilla milkshake, you can use praline chips, mini marshmallows, whatever makes you happy! Instead of vanilla ice cream, do not hesitate to use chocolate ice cream to vary the pleasures...
