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 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 for this Homemade Strawberry Milkshake:
As is, this milkshake 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 milkshake 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:
