Fresh Strawberry Milkshakes

I always associate this time of year with fresh fruit, and strawberries in particular are one of my summer favourites. They are an excellent source of vitamins and other nutrients so I like to use them in my recipes as much as possible. 

Over the coming weeks I'm going to be sharing some of those recipes with you. As I've previously mentioned I'm no baking goddess, so the recipes won't be too complicated and hopefully they may inspire you to try some out for yourself!

Today I'm sharing my Strawberry Milkshake recipe:

Ingredients

Strawberries, stemmed and sliced
Vanilla extract
Vanilla ice cream
Whole milk
Cream (optional)

We didn't add cream on this occasion because we wanted a really fruity taste but if you prefer your milkshakes to be more creamy then definitely add some cream.

Strawberry Milkshake Ingredients

I used Jubilee Strawberries for this recipe because they are so yummy and sweet, they also have a wonderful fresh aroma which fills the kitchen whenever you're using them. If you're looking for a top quality strawberry then I'd definitely recommend the Jubilee range.

Jubilee Strawberries are stocked in Sainsbury’s Taste The Difference, Tesco Finest, Marks & Spencer Top Tier, Asda’s Extra Special and Waitrose Speciality ranges.

Method

You'll notice I didn't add quantities in the above ingredients list and that's because it's best to add each ingredient according to personal preference. 

I used half a punnet of strawberries and blended them with half a teaspoon of vanilla extract, 2 cups of ice cream and 4 tablespoons of milk.

Once you have a nice smooth consistency taste the milkshake and add more ingredients if necessary.

Pour into glasses and serve immediately.

This is an incredibly easy-to-make milkshake with only a few ingredients needed. Ours tasted really fresh and fruity - a lovely summer drink!

We received some Jubilee Strawberries to use in our recipes. All opinions are my own or that of my family.
