Kitchen Crusade: I tried to make a strawberry milkshake alá McDonalds but alas, I could not
"Tried," being a key word here.
McDonald's have opened up their Drive-Thrus again, guys.
A wonderful time, a glorious occasion, a beautiful pandemic-based moment for us all.
They're selling fries, they're selling burgers, they're even selling McFlurries immediately taking our summer enjoyment up by a solid 45 percent at least.
What they are not selling, however, is milkshakes. Why? We don't know. To hurt whom? Me, probably.
But never fear, because as it turns out a McDonald's milkshake is actually pretty easy to make yourself at home... if you want it to turn out like a berry smoothie-shake instead, that is.
(If you want to create a more authentic McDonald's milkshake experience, grab yourself a few scoops of a strawberry milk powder instead of actual fruit. Less lumpy, more shake-like.)
You will need:
- 3 scoops vanilla ice cream
- Handful of strawberries/whatever berries you've got (for a more authentic McDonald's experience, use 2 scoops of a powdered strawberry milkshake mix like Nestlé)
- 1 cup milk
- Squeeze of maple syrup
1. Add all ingredients to a blender.
2. Blend until smooth.
3. That's it.
