Vanilla Milkshake


It’s been a very hot summer this year and all we do is eat or crave cold things like raspados, a delicious lemonade and even a juicy Colombian fruit cocktail. And because my whole family loves ice cream, especially my husband, I also like making things that can be served with it like a Colombian fruit salad or a delicious milkshake.

After the last time I made this really basic, yet delicious vanilla milkshake I thought, why not share it on the blog since it’s so good and extremely easy to make?

So, here it is. I had not posted it before because like I said, it’s sooooooooooooo easy to make that even a young kid would get a kick out of making something that comes out tasting so incredibly good.

¡Buen provecho!
