How to make a healthy milkshake with lots of protein

What is a milkshake

A milkshake is a drink usually made by mixing milk, ice and flavorings into a creamy and refreshing drink. It is a popular choice as a dessert or refreshment, especially on hot days. The basic ingredients of a milkshake are:

  1. Milk: Traditionally, whole milk is used, but you can also use skim milk, almond milk, soy milk or other milk alternatives depending on your preference.

  2. Ice cream: Vanilla ice cream is usually used as the base, but you can also use other ice cream flavors to add variety, such as chocolate, strawberry, banana, etc. Frozen yogurt can also be used as a healthier alternative.

  3. Flavorings: These can be different ingredients to achieve the desired taste, such as vanilla extract, chocolate syrup, strawberry puree, bananas, caramel, peanut butter, etc.

These ingredients are usually placed in a blender and blended until a smooth and creamy consistency. The ratio of milk to ice cream can vary depending on how thick you want the milkshake. You can also add additional toppings, such as whipped cream, chocolate chips, nuts, cherries, etc., to further decorate the milkshake.

It is important to note that milkshakes are often associated with sweetness and are generally not considered healthy due to their high sugar and calorie content. However, healthier options are possible by using skimmed milk, less ice cream and natural flavorings such as fresh fruit. We will help you with this!
