It’s hot outside and NOTHING cools me down better than one of these fresh Strawberry Milkshakes! It comes together with just THREE simple ingredients with an option to make it a little healthier (only if you want!) too. Everyone is going to LOVE this milkshake.

I went strawberry picking recently and after I used up as MANY of the fresh strawberries as possible making Strawberry compote, strawberry donuts AND strawberry lemonade vodka, I froze what was leftover. Since then, I’ve been making this milkshake on REPEAT and show no signs of stopping any time soon :)
My daughter calls this a smoothie and even though I usually make it with ice cream, I just let her keep saying that. It makes dessert feel a lot more healthy.
Ingredients we’re working with:
I wanted to keep this super simple and minimal. But, obviously still DELICIOUS! To achieve this, we need just THREE simple ingredients:
- Strawberries. These can be fresh or frozen (or freshly frozen) but frozen berries is going to result in a thicker and creamier milkshake. I pretty much always use frozen. Side note: you can also swap out the strawberries for other fruit/ berries as desired.
- Liquid. I usually use oat milk but regular milk OR even just water work well. More than anything, it’s there to get your blender going so the milkshake isn’t TOO thick.
- Ice cream. My preference is a simple vanilla ice cream (usually vegan) but you can use whatever you prefer. Strawberry or even chocolate ice cream will work too! If you want to make a strawberry milkshake without ice cream, I suggest replacing the ice cream with 2 medium FROZEN bananas. It turns into kind of a nice cream situation and while it’s rather banana-y, it’s totally delicious! But repeat: it does have a substantial banana flavor.
How to make a Strawberry Milkshake:
One of the things that I love about this recipe is that it’s SO incredibly simple to make. Simply add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until creamy and smooth! That’s legit it!
I usually start with just half a cup of liquid and then add more as needed if it’s a little too thick and the blender needs help running. Your blender might take a little more or less depending.
And if you want to make a strawberry banana milkshake, simply swap the ice cream for 2 frozen bananas. I love both versions!
