Homemade Strawberry Milkshake Recipe

Move over, Arby's - this 4-ingredient homemade strawberry milkshake is the best we've ever had. It's creamy, thick, and made even better with fresh strawberries.

I crave strawberry milkshakes so badly when I am pregnant. I just want the cold, thick, and creamy texture as mush as possible.

During my last pregnancy, I lived pretty close to an Arby’s. I finally got around to satisfying my craving and what did they tell me? They don’t make strawberry milkshakes anymore!

Rather than wallowing in self pity, I took matters into my own hands and whipped up this delicious strawberry milkshake. Take that Arby’s. 😉

How to make a homemade strawberry milkshake

We love this recipe because it’s SO EASY to make. You only need FOUR ingredients

  • hulled strawberries
  • milk
  • vanilla ice cream
  • vanilla extract

All you have to do is combine all the ingredients together in a blender.

How to make a thicker milkshake

One of the most commonly asked questions we get when it comes to milkshakes is how to make them thicker.

While we think this milkshake makes a pretty thick, creamy shake, there are two ways to increase the thickness.

First, you can add less milk. This recipe calls for 1 cup of milk, but you can add more or less depending on how thick you’d like your shake.

Second, you use frozen strawberries instead of fresh. We like the way the fresh strawberries taste, but you can use frozen strawberries for an even thicker shake.

blenders we love

As is, this recipe is made easily in a blender. If you use less milk and frozen strawberries, you may need a higher-powered blender. We’ve tried a few different blenders in our day, but our favorites are definitely the Vitamix and the Blendtec blenders.

The easiest way to hull strawberries

This recipe calls for one pound of hulled strawberries. You can always use a strawberry huller, but that’s one extra kitchen gadget you may or may not actually need.

We use this quick and easy trick to hull strawberries without one:

A straw! We’ve used plastic straws, paper straws, and metal straws – they all work the same. Just push the straw up through the bottom of the strawberry and push the stem out.
