Coke in a milkshake??? That’s what I was thinking. But then I saw the light. This cola milkshake was fantastic. Easy, of course. The soda adds a malt-like flavor, which I didn’t expect. I guarantee that this milkshake disappeared a lot quicker than it took to make.
I used decaf diet Coke. You don’t want a strong-flavored soda that would overwhelm the ice cream flavors. Regular Coke would work perfectly as well. This cola milkshake is somewhat reminiscent of a float, but with all the flavors in a creamy shake.
I love making and drinking milkshakes. They remind me of my days as a kid when I could drink as many of them as I could find. I have to exercise a bit more control now, but I still enjoy them.
We often make ice cream at home. It’s really easier than I ever thought it would be. We got an inexpensive maker that more than does the job.
This recipe is based on a recipe from Nancy Fuller.
- 4 scoops vanilla ice cream
- 2 scoops chocolate ice cream
- ½ cup Coke cold (I used Diet decaf Coke)
- ¼ cup whole milk
- Place all ingredients into a blender and process until somewhat smooth but still a little chunky.
