It is a kind of milkshake of American origin made with milk, ice cream and whipped cream, which is traditionally served with pancakes, club sandwiches, hamburgers and French fries, in dinner: the famous American fast food restaurants decorated in the style of the 50s.

In our recipe, to prepare it, we have chosen to use good whole milk and a vanilla ice cream.

For impeccable results, we suggest you put the blender jar in the freezer for a few minutes, before proceeding with the preparation: in this way the drink will remain very cold and will not lose its velvety texture.

Here, to speed things up, we have opted for a packaged ice cream, but for a result handmade you can make it at home, with or without the help of an ice cream maker. If you feel like it, you can replace the vanilla with another favorite flavor, such as strawberry, banana, chocolate, pistachio, hazelnut… And then replace the waffles with butter cookies or cat’s tongue.
