Happy National Vanilla Milkshake Day – no really, it’s actually a thing!
A delicious thing I might add, but I think milkshakes are great any day of the year.
Milkshakes have come a long way over the years.
The term milkshake was first used in 1885 to describe an egg-nog type, alcoholic beverage consisting of eggs and whiskey. The first milkshake as we know it was invented in 1922 by a Chicago Walgreen’s employee when he added two scoops of ice cream to a drink called malted milk and the rest is history.
Milkshakes are so delicious and refreshing, especially on a hot, summer day.
My recipe lets you enjoy one of these chilly treats with no guilt!
To make shakes light and healthy I use yogurt in place of ice cream, almond milk instead
of whole milk and frozen banana slices to add creaminess.
