If we’re going to indulge in a milkshake, we want it to be thick, rich, and creamy, not thin and watery. While the quality and ratio of the ingredients you put in is important, there’s one technique that you can adjust to make sure your milkshakes are thick as can be.
When blending milkshakes, blend them on low speed instead of on higher speeds. Higher speeds will incorporate more air into the milkshake, making it fluffy and light instead of thick and rich. A low speed will blend the ingredients together while still keeping the milkshake thick.
It may take a little longer and it might be more difficult to get it going, but just use a spatula to push your add-ins to the bottom of the blender. Soon, you’ll been rewarded with a thick, rich, and creamy spoon-worthy milkshake.
