How Do You Make a Thicker Milkshake?

The thickness of a milkshake depends on the ice cream to milk ratio. Use more ice cream than milk for a thicker milkshake. You can also add protein powder or frozen fruit to increase the thickness of the shake. At this point, you may need to forgo the straw and use a spoon to eat the milkshake.

How To Blend Up A Smooth Milkshake

To make a super smooth milkshake, use a blender and combine all the ingredients at a slow speed. This helps all the ingredients to be incorporated and makes for a smooth consistency that you’ll love. Adding an extra scoop of ice cream also helps to thicken the milkshake and make it smooth and delicious.
