How to make a Peach Milkshake From Scratch
Add the ingredients for the peach milkshake to the blender jar in the order listed. If you want a thicker milkshake, omit the milk and allow the ice cream to soften at room temperature for 5-10 minutes before you make it.
Which Milk is best for Making Milkshakes
For a creamy, non-icy milkshake you'll want to use whole milk. The fat plays a huge roll in keeping the texture smooth.
You can use other milks, including dairy-free milk. If you do use another milk I recommend using less milk and letting the ice cream soften for a few minutes before you make a milkshake.
This will reduce the chances of the milkshake being too ice.
How to Make a Milkshake with a Blender
If you're adding milk to your milkshake, you'll want to add the milk to the blender jar first. Then add in the ice cream, and finally the add-ins.
Blend until well combined and serve immediately.
How to Make a Milkshake without a Blender
Scoop the ice cream into a quart size mason jar or a deep glass container and microwave it for 15-30 seconds.
Add in the flavors or add-ins, secure the lid and shake. You can also stir the milkshake mixture with a spoon.
Use the spoon to break up any larger sections of ice cream.
How to make a thick Milkshake
For a thick milkshake use only slightly softened ice cream and the add-ins. You can always add a little milk at a time, to get the desired consistency.
You can also add ice and blend until creamy.
