Why wait until you are at a diner to order a milkshake? They are easy to make at home with ice cream, milk, and your favorite flavors. Fresh fruit makes a tasty milkshake. Try this homemade peach milkshake recipe to capture a wonderful flavor of the summer in a tall glass. The addition of ripe ice cream makes ice cream and milk into a tasty drink.
This easy milkshake recipe makes two large shakes if you are kind enough to want to share. However, it is an easy recipe to cut in half if you just want to make a quick shake for yourself. One of the biggest perks of making your own desserts at home is that you can change it up to add your own twist or only make as much as you need.
- 2 peaches
- 2 cups vanilla ice cream
- 1/2 cup milk
- Slice the peaches into large chunks, removing the pit and peel.
- Puree the peaches in a blender until they are completely smooth.
- Add the ice cream and milk to the blender and mix to combine.
- Check out your shake and see if it needs any more milk or ice cream to get to your favorite texture.
- Pour the milkshake into two chilled glasses, serve and enjoy.
- I prefer to puree the peaches first, so I don’t end up with chunks in your finished milkshake. By starting them first, you can get the fruit nice and smooth so you can drink your entire shake. However, you can certainly just toss everything in the blender and go.
- Frozen peaches will work just as well as fresh in this recipe. Thaw the fruit first, or else your milkshake will end up too thick to drink. Using frozen peaches is a great way to end up with peach ice cream, though!
- This is a great recipe for using up overripe fruit. When your peaches are getting a little too soft to be eaten as is, puree them up for a shake. As a bonus, using very ripe fruit means that you won’t have to add any other sweeteners to this recipe. A good quality vanilla ice cream and two sweet peaches will provide plenty of sugar for the shakes.
- Peaches take on a new flavor when you grill them. If you’re cooking your dinner on the grill, cut your peaches in half and toss them on the grill until they get good marks. The cooking process will bring out the sweetness of the fruit and give it an additional hint of smoke. Let the peaches cool and continue with the recipe as written.
