Peach Milkshake

This thick and delicious peach milkshake is the perfect cold dessert to welcome in summer! Loaded with vanilla ice cream and fresh peaches, you won't be able to stop sipping this sweet drink.
Prep Time: 5 mins
Total Time: 5 mins
Servings: 2 servings

Ingredients
 

  • 3 cups fresh peaches - peeled, pitted, and sliced (about 16 oz once peeled and sliced)
  • 2 cups vanilla ice cream - about 5 large scoops, see notes
  • 1/4 cup milk - see notes
  • whipped cream - for topping, optional

Instructions
 

  • To a high power blender add the peaches, ice cream, and milk. Blend until smooth. 
  • Pour into glasses and top with fresh whipped cream. 

Notes

Peaches
  • For a strong peach flavor use ripe peaches.
  • I used 16 oz of peaches after they were peeled, pitted, and sliced. 
  • Can use frozen store-bought peaches, but may not have as strong a flavor. However, using the frozen peaches will result in a very thick milkshake! You may need to add more milk to the blender if doing this. 
  • If peaches are really juicy you can eliminate the milk entirely and add it only if the milkshake needs thinning; this will give you a thicker milkshake consistency.
  • You can use canned peaches, but the flavor will be very different. (Canned peaches and fresh peaches taste so different to me!)
Milk
  • You don't have to add the milk. In fact, I would suggest blending the peaches and just the ice cream then adding milk a tablespoon at a time until it reaches your desired consistency and thickness. Fresh peaches can vary with how juicy they are, so it's hard to say exactly how much milk your shake will need. 
Ice Cream
  • I used vanilla bean ice cream but you can use any kind of vanilla ice cream, even homemade! 
  • I used about 2 cups of ice cream (I really wanted the peach flavor to shine in this shake, so I didn't want t0 dilute that flavor with too much ice cream). You'll need about 4-5 large scoops of ice cream.
If you don't eat all of the milkshake in one sitting you can freeze it for later.
