Do you ever get a craving for a proper old-school milkshake? I’m not talking a weak watered down skinny strawberry milk from a carton, but a proper thick and creamy shake that requires a straw AND a spoon to eat. Yeah, me too! Desperate for such a milkshake recently I experimented with some frozen yoghurt to keep the calories and fat content down.
I’ve always been a bit “meh” about frozen yoghurt until I discovered Yoo Moo Frozen Yoghurt. It honestly tastes just as good as full-fat ice cream and my fussy eaters can’t tell the difference.
I’m very happy to report that my frozen yoghurt milkshake experiment worked really well and I’ll definitely be making it more often as a quick after dinner treat for the family this summer. I am already planning a mixed berry version, mmmmm!
I didn’t make this milkshake too thick as I wanted my little fussy eater to be able to drink it easily through the straw. But if you like your milkshakes quite thick then simply add more frozen yoghurt / less milk. Blending for longer makes a lovely frothy top but if you prefer lumps of frozen yoghurt in your milkshake then blitz the strawberries and milk together first then add the frozen yoghurt and blend for just a few more seconds.
- 8 scoops strawberry frozen yoghurt
- 150ml milk (or less if you prefer your milkshake thick)
- 8 fresh or frozen strawberries (plus 2 to decorate)
- 2 tbsp strawberry sauce (plus extra to decorate)
- 6 large marshmallows
- sprinkles to decorate
- Blend the frozen yoghurt, milk and strawberries in a blender until smooth.
- Swirl the strawberry sauce on the inside of two tall glasses. Pour the milkshake into the glasses, filling just to the top.
- Top with marshmallows and decorate with more strawberry sauce and sprinkles. Add a whole strawberry to the side of the glass.
- Serve immediately or keep chilled in the fridge for up to an hour.
