- Vanilla Ice Cream (Homemade if preferred)
- Combine 4 cups of vanilla ice cream and 2 teaspoons vanilla into a blender. Mix slightly to combine the two ingredients.
- Then, add in 6-8 tablespoons of sugar, depending on how sweet you prefer your shake. From here, you can add up to 2 cups of milk to create a less thick milkshake, however it is an optional step.
