How to make a strawberry milkshake
To start, wash the strawberries, remove the stalk and dry them on a cotton cloth. Then cut them into wedges or slices and set them aside.
First, put the ice in the blender and then add the strawberries, cold milk, (2), and finally the sugar.
Run the blender for about 1 minute: increase the speed gradually until the mixture is soft and fluffy.
Immediately pour it into glasses and serve cold, perhaps decorating with a few strawberries and adding a few mint leaves and straw.
Your strawberry milkshake is ready to be enjoyed.
To make your strawberry milkshake low-calorie use skim milk while, if you are lactose intolerant, use lactose-free milk or a vegetable drink based on soy, rice, or almonds.
Put the glasses in the freezer for a few minutes, before pouring the strawberry milkshake: contact with hot glasses could in fact change their consistency. For the success of the milkshake, it is also important that all the ingredients are very cold.
If you want to prepare the strawberry milkshake without ice, replace it with 250 grams of ice cream, preferably mozzarella, vanilla, or banana, perhaps avoiding the addition of sugar. In this case, you will prepare a substantial and more caloric milkshake, which you can also serve with cream.
If you prefer the milkshake without the seeds of the strawberries, then blend them separately, then pass them in a narrow mesh strainer and add them to the rest of the ingredients in the mixer: the milkshake will be smoother and more velvety.
