There really just aren’t enough good things to say about milkshakes. Honestly. They’ve got dozens upon dozens of flavor options. A great ice cream base and lots of additives really make the world of milkshakes an open book. After a home repair project, a day filled with cleaning or some rigorous exercise, a trip to the local ice cream or milkshake shop is definitely in order.
These days, we make our milkshakes at home. A few scoops of vanilla ice cream, a couple of cookies or brownies and we can call it a day. My new favorite is definitely the brownie batter milkshake. It’s got creamy vanilla ice cream that’s mixed with brownie scraps and blended to thick, chocolatey perfection. If you’ve got vanilla ice cream and brownies, I highly suggesting whipping up one of these babies as soon as you can. The weather has broken which can only mean milkshake season is here. Let this be your first shake of the season!
I’ve used this recipe for the brownies included in the shake.
- 4 large scoops of vanilla ice cream
- 1 cup of brownie scraps plus ¼ cup
- ¼ cup milk
- ½ cup of ice
- Combine all ingredients but ¼ cup brownie scraps in a blender. Blend until smooth. Add in the remaining brownie scraps and fold them in so the milkshake is laced with brownie chunks.
