How to Make Strawberry milkshake without ice cream
Strawberry. Fresh or frozen strawberry is good to use here. When using frozen strawberries, you do not need to thaw, you can blend with whole milk as it is.
Whole milk. I have used whole milk, to make the milkshake creamy and thick. If you are using low-fat or skimmed milk, it makes the consistency thinner.
Sugar. I have used granulated white sugar, but if you think of making this drink more healthy, avoid adding white sugar. And swap with natural sweeteners like honey, where honey brings noticeable minerals along with it.
Pure vanilla extract. This enhances the strawberry flavors, but you may skip if you want to serve the strawberry milkshake with natural flavors.
The recipe direction
In a blender/juicer, add strawberries, sugar, and 1 cup of the milk. Pulse and run the machine for 1 minute or until the texture becomes smooth and silky.
Add remaining milk and pulse until combined.
Transfer strawberry milkshake to the serving glasses by topping with ice cubes and fresh fruit slices. And serve immediately.
To retain all the flavors and nutrients of the fresh fruit, serve immediately. The longer you store, the strawberry milkshake's quality and the freshness also gets loose. This drink is meant to be served as soon as it is prepared.
Serving with fruit slices are optional, I would recommend them when serving milkshake strawberry to the children.
Add some finely chopped strawberry to add texture.
Add honey or other natural sugar to substitute refined sugar.
Top the strawberries milkshake with chopped nuts. This adds a crunch, we love this addition.
Add vanilla extract for more flavor.
The quantity of the sugar mention in this recipe depends on the sweetness of the strawberries. Hence, use less sugar when the strawberries do tastes sweeter.
To dilute the milkshake, add in more milk. Never try stir in water, as it weakens the flavors and the taste.
Top with ice cream or whipped cream in individual glasses when wanted.
The recipe FAQ
I would highly recommend using blender for this strawberry milkshake without ice cream recipe. Because the strawberries have to be ground and combined with the milk. The blender does this job very well.
This milkshake can be thickened in three ways. Firstly, substitute half of the whole milk with half and half. Secondly, add in strawberry ice cream( this is the first choice for more flavors but more calories too). And finally, add a half banana for a velvety texture.
Substitute with plant-based milk like almond milk, coconut milk, or soy milk. Coconut milk is my preferred alternative.
