What Is Usually In A Milkshake?
Typically made with milk and ice cream, a milkshake is often also mixed with thick, sweet sauces like butterscotch, caramel, or chocolate sauce, as well as fresh fruits or fruity syrups.
How Do You Make A Thick Milkshake?
To make sure your milkshake is as creamy as ever, use 2 cups of ice cream per 1/2 cup of milk. It’ll result in a thicker consistency that you’ll need to eat with a spoon instead of a straw. Do the reverse if you want a thinner consistency to drink with a straw instead.
