🥤 How to Make Homemade Chocolate Milkshakes (Step-by-Step Instructions with Detailed Photos)

First, measure six cups of ice cream. You can do that by using a measuring cup or using the six cup mark on the blender.

Step 3. Measure the Milk

Next, measure 1/3 cup of milk using a measuring cup. The thickness of the milkshake depends on how much milk you put in. If you want a thick chocolate milkshake add less milk, and if you want your milkshake to be not as thick, add more milk. The thickness of your milkshake also depends on what type of milk you use. If you use whole milk, it will be creamier and thicker… but if you use fat free or 1% milk, it will be less creamy and not as thick.

🤔 FAQs

What Should I Add to my Chocolate Milkshake?

Some things to add to the ice cream after it’s blended could be chocolate chips, cookie dough bits, and chunks of candy bars such as Hershey’s or KitKat’s.

Can You Make a Chocolate Milkshake Without Ice Cream?

Yes! For me, it was hard to believe but you can make a chocolate milkshake without ice cream. To do that, combine 10 ice cubes, 2 cups of milk, 3/4 cup of granulated sugar, and 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, then blend until smooth. I haven’t tried this yet, but I am guessing that it would be slightly less thick and less creamy without the ice cream!
