I can’t guarantee that these tasty milkshake recipes will bring all the boys to the yard, but I can assure you that you’ll love them! Why go to a fast food joint or restaurant for a delicious gourmet milkshake when you can customize and create your very own right at home?! These cool, creamy and oh so decadent frozen treats will make the perfect addition to any gathering or night in. Let’s get right into these tasty milkshake recipes because I know you’ll be craving one once you see them!

1. Skinny Cookies and Cream Milkshake

Skinny Cookies and Cream Milkshake

Sinfully tasty milkshake recipes don’t all have to be full of guilt and calories! This milkshake recipe utilizes skim milk, frozen bananas and reduced fat Oreo cookies for a drool-worthy frozen treat that you’re sure to love! If you’ve ever tried frozen banana “ice cream” then you’ll know how good this milkshake can be!

Ingredients:

2 ripe large bananas, peeled, cut into chunks, & frozen

1/4 cup skim milk (or almond or soy)

1/2 cup fat-free frozen whipped topping, such as Cool Whip* (frozen, not thawed, Cool Whip will produce a creamier milkshake)

3 reduced-fat Oreos

Directions:

Blend the frozen banana chunks and milk together until thick, creamy, and smooth - about 4 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the blender as needed.

Add the Cool Whip and Oreos and blend for 1 minute. Pour into glasses and enjoy!

*Greek yogurt is a wonderful protein-packed replacement for Cool Whip.

2. Chocolate-Peanut Butter Swirl Milkshake

Chocolate-Peanut Butter Swirl Milkshake

Forget Brad and Angelina, peanut butter and chocolate is my idea of a great pair! Enjoy the two fabulous flavors together in this indulgent milkshake recipe and your taste buds will be in heaven. The creator of this recipe used hot fudge and peanut butter sauce to swirl throughout the drink, which really takes a plain vanilla milkshake up a few notches!

Ingredients:

Hot Fudge Sauce

Peanut Butter Sauce

1/2 cup butter, melted

1 cup creamy peanut butter

1/2 cup powdered sugar

Vanilla Ice Cream

Milk

Directions:

Make your Hot Fudge Sauce (if using homemade) and Peanut Butter Sauce. Combine the melted butter with the creamy peanut butter and 1/2 cup powdered sugar. Use a hand mixer to mix until smooth.

Scoop desired amount of ice cream in a blender. I fill my blender up 3/4 full with vanilla ice cream and it makes about 4 tall shakes. Add in milk halfway up the ice cream. Blend until smooth. You may need to add a little more milk if it is too thick.

Scoop a spoonful each of the hot fudge sauce and peanut butter sauce into each cup. Fill the cup halfway with the vanilla shake, then spoon another helping each of the hot fudge and peanut butter sauce. Fill the cup to the top and top with drizzles of the sauces. Use a long stick (chop stick, butter knife, etc) to swirl the sauces immediately. The sauces will thicken as the ice cream cools them off, but will remain soft enough that you don't end up with hard bites in your shake. ***If you make your sauces in advance, heat them up in the microwave for 15-30 seconds to make it easier to swirl.

4. Piña Colada Cupcake Shake

Piña Colada Cupcake Shake

Wow, does this next milkshake recipe not sound like heaven on earth-or should I say in a glass?! Piña Colada cupcakes already sound great but when you make it sippable, it’s just that much better! This recipe uses a couple of the creator’s boozy cupcakes in the milkshake so it’s a little more work, but so worth it!

Ingredients:

Piña Colada Cupcakes:

(Yields 22-24 cupcakes)

1 Box Vanilla cake mix

4 Large egg whites

1/3 C Oil

1/2 C Buttermilk

3/4 C Sour Cream

2 tbsp Orange juice

2 tbsp Rum

1 tsp Coconut extract

1 C (6.5 oz) Pineapple, diced

Piña Colada Cupcake Milkshake:

2 Piña Colada Cupcakes

6-7 large scoops vanilla bean ice cream

1/4 cup shredded coconut

3/4 C Chopped Pineapple

1/3 C Milk

Directions:

For cupcakes:

Reheat over to 350°.

Combine cake mix with eggs, oil, buttermilk and sour cream. Beat with a mixer on medium speed until combined.

Next add orange juice, rum, coconut extract and diced pineapple. Beat into cake on a low speed until combined.

Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full and bake for 12-15 minutes. Check after 12 minutes, and bake another 2-3 minutes until tops are golden or until you can insert a toothpick and it comes out clean. Baking times will vary by oven.

Allow cupcakes to cool in the pan for 5 minutes and then transfer them to a wire rack to cool.

I topped these with a Coconut Swiss Meringue buttercream (SWB). I love SWB because it’s so light and whatever flavor you add isn’t overpowered by the sweetness of powdered sugar. SWB takes a little bit of work, but it is totally worth it! Be sure to check out my tutorial on how to make Swiss Meringue buttercream before you begin.

For milkshake:

The instructions for this aren’t too complicated. Combine all of your ingredients in a large blender and beat until well mixed. For a thicker shake, add additional ice cream. For a thinner shake, add more milk.

5. Dates Milkshake

Dates Milkshake

Dates are one of underdogs of the fruit family. Although they have a pleasant, sweet flavor as well as a host of health benefits, they’re not utilized enough in dessert recipes, so I was happy to see it in a recipe for milkshakes! In case you weren’t aware, dates are great for intestinal disorders, anemia and are chock full of fiber, vitamins and minerals!

Ingredients:

Five Deseeded Dates

Quarter cup Warm milk

Three fourth cup cold milk

Sugar or honey to taste

Directions:

Soak the dates in warm milk for 20 minutes. Blend the soaked dates with the milk and sugar to a puree. Add the cold milk and blend again and pour in to a glass. Enjoy the tasty milkshake and its health benefits! Use cold milk for better taste.

6. Boozy Snickerdoodle Shake

Boozy Snickerdoodle Shake

If you’re looking for another boozy recipe for milkshakes, this bourbon-spiked number will fill the bill. If you’re a fan of the Snickerdoodle cookie, I think it’s pretty safe to say you’re going to be a big fan of it as a milkshake! This recipe uses homemade everything so it takes a little more time, but you’ll have many bragging rights as a result!

Ingredients:

4 large scoops of cinnamon ice cream

1-2 oz bourbon

toffee bits for garnish (optional)

Cinnamon Ice Cream:

5 large egg yolks

1/2 cup sugar

2 cups heavy cream

1 cup low-fat milk

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Toffee Bits:

4 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon water

1/8 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

In a saucepan, whisk together the cream, milk, cinnamon, salt, and the remaining sugar over medium-high heat. When the mixture just approaches a simmer, reduce the heat to medium. Next, scoop out 1/2 cup of the hot cream mixture and, while whisking, add the cream to the bowl with the egg and sugar mixture. Repeat this step once more with another 1/2 cup of hot cream mixture. Now that the egg mixture has been tempered, slowly pour the egg and cream mixture into back into the saucepan, stirring constantly.

Cook the mixture carefully over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it is thickened and coats the back of a spatula. Once thickened, strain the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer into a new container, then place it into an ice-water bath, stirring until it’s cool. Once cool, cover the container with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least two hours (or overnight).

Once the ice cream base has cooled for at least two hours, whisk in the vanilla. Then, it’s time to freeze the base in your ice cream machine. Follow your machine’s instructions to do so. While the ice cream is churning, chill the container you’ll use to store the ice cream in the freezer. I used a metal bread pan. Once churned, transfer the ice cream from the ice cream maker into the serving container. I popped the container back into the freezer to hold firm while I prepped for the shake.

When you’re ready to make your shake, place four large scoops of ice cream into your shake tin or blender. Add bourbon . . . anywhere from 1 oz for a mild hint of whiskey, up to 2 oz for a those craving a boozier dessert. Or, for a non-alcoholic version, substitute bourbon for 2 oz of milk. The homemade ice cream is already fairly soft and creamy, so milk isn’t otherwise necessary.

Blend the ice cream and bourbon. Pour into your glass and garnish with toffee bits for a little bit of crunch (no pun intended). I also garnished with a small Snickerdoodle wheel from a batch of cookies my wife made.

Lastly, to make the toffee, mix together water, butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring as little as possible. Using a candy thermometer to gauge the temperature, cook until the mixture reaches 300°F. Remove the pan from heat and immediate stir in the baking soda and vanilla. Mix until just combined (do not over-stir). Then, immediately pour the hot toffee mixture onto a baking sheet covered in parchment paper. Let cool completely. If your kitchen is warm, you may need to let cool in the refrigerator. Once hardened, chop the toffee to desired size and sprinkle bits on top of the milkshake.
