easy vanilla milkshake

The original "milkshake" was a healthy style eggnog drink made with eggs and whiskey. By the 1900s this had changed to where the milkshake was known as "wholesome drink made with chocolate, strawberry or vanilla syrup" that was added to ice cream. The milkshake was a favorite drink at malt shops.
The Walgreens drug store in Chicago Illinois is credited for adding malted milk powder to the milkshake. An employee known as "Pop" Coulson was making milkshakes with 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream when he added a bit of "Horlick's Malted Milk" This drink would become one of the most popular drinks. 

  • 1 Quart Vanilla Ice Cream
  • 1 cup Half & Half (or whole milk)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  1. In a blender combine ice cream and half-and-half. Add vanilla. Blend until smooth.
