Tips for Making a Milkshake
- If you find that your milkshake is too thick, add a little more milk. If it’s too thin, add more ice cream.
- It’s best to use a blender when making a milkshake, but if you don’t have one, you can use a food processor or an immersion blender.
- For a smooth milkshake, make sure all of the ingredients are well blended.
- If you want a cold milkshake, use frozen fruit and put the milkshake in the freezer for a few minutes before serving.

Can I make this ahead of time?

How To Ripen Fresh Peaches?
If your farmers’ market haul included peaches that are on the hard (or unripe) side, an easy hack for quickly helping them to ripen up is to place them in a brown paper bag. Add as many as you are planning to eat to the bag, fold the bag to loosely seal and let them sit out on the counter for 1-3 days.
