Vanilla Milkshake

And this, ladies & gentlemen, is one of the many reasons I love my husband. He came up with this little concoction just for me and I must say I find it delightful. He used a recipe he found from the great Paula Deen, and it was so good I just had to share it with you all!

Vanilla Milkshake

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Serves: 4


  • 4 cups vanilla ice cream {we love Breyer’s All Natural French Vanilla}
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups milk {we used whole to make it even sweeter}

Throw all the ingredients in a blender and hit the button 🙂 Then put your wonderful milkshake into a big glass cup with two straws and share it with your significant other!

{We just made a “half batch” to share… which fit perfectly in our glass!}
