Tips for Making the Best Peach Milkshakes
Here are a few extra tips and tricks to help you craft the perfect milkshake! Keep them in mind and your shake will end up creamy, smooth, and delicious, just like the ones from Chick-fil-A!
- Why Did My Milkshake Turn Out Lumpy? The biggest culprit for lumpy milkshakes is using ice cream or other frozen ingredients that are too hard. I always let my ice cream soften a little before I add it to my blender. This way, it incorporates smoothly with the other ingredients.
- How Do I Make My Milkshake Thicker? The best way to avoid a milkshake that is too thin is by adding milk a little bit at a time until you reach your desired consistency. If you’ve ended up with a shake that’s too runny, though, don’t worry! Mixing in a high-fat dairy product like ice cream or whipping cream can help adjust it. As tempting as it might be to add in ice, don’t do this! The ice will melt quickly and your shake will be watery and gritty.
- How Do I Make My Milkshake Thinner? For a thinner milkshake, mix or blend a tablespoon of milk in at a time until you reach your desired consistency!
- How Long Can I Store a Milkshake? Milkshakes are one of those things that are best served straight out of the blender. You can keep them in the fridge for an hour or two at most before they become runny and melted.
