How are you celebrating vanilla milkshake day?

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.


National Vanilla Milkshake DayMilkshakes 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.

Grab a straw and enjoy!
