500g Fresh Strawberries, tops cut off*

1 Tub Vanilla Ice Cream

500ml Whole Milk



  1. Whizz up 100g of the strawberries into a puree in a blender and swirl this on the inside of 4 small milkshake glasses. Pop these in the freezer while you make the milkshake.
  2. Tip the remaining strawberries into the blender, along with the ice cream and milk. Whizz this up to a smooth consistency.
  3. Pour the milkshake into your prepared glasses and enjoy!

*If you want to make a chocolate milkshake, replace the strawberries with a heaped tablespoon of chocolate spread (we like this one) and simply blend the ice cream and milk for step 2. Mix a teaspoon of spread with a generous splash of milk to swirl around the glass in step 1.
