Copycat Dairy Queen Blizzard

No matter what time of year it is, or how cold it is, a milkshake never sounds like a bad idea. I love Dairy Queen's Blizzards. I found a recipe that tastes identical to it, so I had to share it with you today. Now I don't even have to leave my house to enjoy one.

We are trying to hang onto summer as long as we can and these copycat blizzards are a family favorite dessert.

You can add your favorite candy bar or any other mix-ins with this recipe. And just like the Dairy Queen, you can serve this upside down – it’s that thick.

I personally love my milkshakes with Oreo in them, but you could honestly put what ever candy, mix in, chocolate, caramel, peanut butter, etc, in your blizzard.

how can you make milkshakes thicker?

Most milkshake recipes call for ice cream, unless you are really making yours from scratch. When finding an ice cream at the store, be sure to look for premium ice cream. This will definitely be thicker, making a thicker milkshake.

In this recipe, we don’t use any milk or half and half. We strictly use ice cream. When you use milk or a different liquid to smooth out your milkshake, it becomes more of a thick drink, than a thick shake.

You could also use malted milk powder if you are going for a malt shake. This will most definitely thicken up your shake.

what is malt and where do i find it?

Malt is a milk powder. Have you ever had a whopper before? That is malt. They are also known as Malted Milk Balls.

You could also add a few whoppers to your shake, if you find that easier. They may leave a few crunch pieces behind, but it may be worth it for a thicker milkshake.

Malt can be found at any local grocery store. It is usually found on the beverage aisle, but I have also the baking aisle as well.

You can also order it online on amazon, or ask a grocery store employee.
