Nutella Milkshake

Last night as I was browsing Pinterest, I suddenly had a burst of inspiration (also known as pinspiration). I found two recipes for nutella milkshakes and decided to try making one the next day (today).  Since both recipes contained the same ingredients (nutella, milk, and ice cream), my adventurous side kicked in and I decided to ‘invent’ my own milkshake recipe, using the recipes I had found as guidelines.

As I was gathering my essential three ingredients, I noticed we had a container of liquid heavy whipping cream; as I reached for the whipping cream, all I thought was “why not?” You don’t have to use the heavy whipping cream, but I recommend it because the whipping cream gives the milkshake a much creamier taste and fluffier texture.

The links to my “guideline” recipes are from The Little Kitchen and Kirbie’s Cravings

Ingredients:

  • about 2 tbsp. nutella
  • 1 1/2 – 2 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3/4 – 1 cup heavy whipping cream

Method:

Put the ingredients into a blender and blend together (about 30 seconds). Pour into glasses and enjoy!

Peach Milkshake

Delicious peach milkshake made from real peaches and organic ice cream.  We found this recipe on foodiva.com , but we modified it to make the milkshake thicker.

2 C. of peeled peaches

1 C. of milk

8 large scoops of vanilla ice cream

1/4 C of pineapple juice (to add sweetness)

1 Tbs. of sugar

We added all of the ingredients into our blender then blended the mixture until smooth. Then, we poured the peach milkshake into a glass and enjoyed!       (This recipe made three milkshakes)
