Heather's Helpful Hints

  • Place your glass in the freezer for 30 minutes before you pour the milkshake into the glass. This helps keep everything nice and cool. 
  • Don't add ice to your milkshake! Ice waters down the milkshake, and you will lose the thick and creamy texture. 
  • Blend only until everything is combined. Too much blending will actually think out the milkshake.
