Expert Tips

  • Adding in malted milk powder will add that ‘50s diner vibe to the thick shakes.
  • Set up a milkshake bar for the family, using the recipe (have double the ingredients ready) as a starting point. Put out small dishes of chunky peanut butter, candy-coated chocolate pieces, thick caramel or butterscotch ice cream topping, toffee baking bits, and/or broken cream-filled wafer cookies or gingersnaps. Be sure to have a heavy-duty blender!
  • Don’t forget a creamy topping, colorful sprinkles, or maraschino cherries. Look for refrigerated whipped topping in a can, made with real cream, and hunt down compostable paper straws or long sundae spoons for fun.
  • For 1 gram of fat and 285 calories per serving, use fat-free (skim) milk; substitute fat-free frozen yogurt for the ice cream.

More About This Recipe

  • "There’s just something about sipping on a straw and enjoying a chocolate milkshake that calls up images of soda fountains, malt shops and the sweetness of times gone by. If you wonder why milkshakes are sometimes called “malteds,” that refers to the practice of adding malt powder to the cold drink. Food historians credit a man named Ivar "Pop" Coulson. In 1922, when he was working at Walgreen’s soda fountain Chicago, he added two scoops of vanilla ice cream to a malted milk drink, changing the face of frozen desserts forever and making his own mark on American food history. Of course, milkshakes are just the start when it comes to ice cream treats. For more ideas and throwback favorites, check out Betty's Best Ice Cream Dessert Recipes.
