Tips for Making the Creamiest Strawberry Milkshake

Here are a few handy tips to keep in mind that should help to make sure that your strawberry milkshakes are as creamy as possible:

  • Use whole milk whenever possible when making milkshakes; it’s far creamier than regular milk.
  • Don’t be afraid to add additional ingredients to act as a thickener; a single egg yolk is a classic example that works wonders for making your milkshakes even creamier.
  • Use fresh strawberries (that have been hulled and sliced) for best results.
