Chocolate Lactaid Milkshake

Over the summer, I’ve been seeing sponsored posts about Lactaid icecream. My family drink lactaid milk. So, I’m not suprised Instagram and Facebook keep suggesting these posts. During a Friday shopping trip, I went down the frozen looking for MyMochi and Halo Top. I grabbed Cookies & Creme mochi and Mango mochi. My favorite Halo Top flavors were out of stock. To my surprise, Lactaid Icecream was available.

My options were Chocolate and Cookies & Creme. I choose chocolate, because I don’t like the chocolate flavored Halo Top or MyMochi. Plus, I’ve wanted to try and make a homemade milkshake.

In my opinion, milkshakes aren’t expensive. It’s more of the inconvenience that I want to avoid. Someone has to go pick it up, get there order taken, pay and drive home. So, I decided to cut out the middle man. As I mentioned in a previous cookie post, I’m not good at making recipes from scratch. On the way home from the grocery store, I searched for simple milkshake recipes. I decided to use Makinze Gore’s Perfect Milkshake recipe.

I didn’t not follow her recipe entirely, she calls for 4 scoops of ice-cream and 1/2 cup of milk. Preferably whole milk. I put 3 scoops of ice-cream and 1/4 cup of Lactaid 2% milk. My adjustment worked, but it only yielded a 10 Oz shake. Truthfully, that’s probably healthier than a 20 Oz shake. However, I was shooting for 16 Oz shake in my Mason Jar.

On my second attempt, I followed the recipe and was able to fill my 16 Oz Mason Jar. Since I used 2%, the shake was thin, which is my personal preference. If I wanted to eat it with a spoon, I would have a bowl of icecream. 

The lactaid ice-cream and milk paired well together. If you plan to try it, the ice-cream will ice over after you open it. Don’t worry, it is not freezer burn. Halo Top does the same thing. The Lactaid ice-cream just needs more time to thaw a bit.

Since I made shakes with it, the container yielded three shakes. If your counting your calories, don’t make a habit of making these shakes. Makinze Gore’s recipe equates to 1 and 1/2 cups of ice-cream. Lactaid chocolate ice-cream serving size is 2/3 cup, which is 220. Thats almost 500 calories without the milk.

Have you tried Lactaid ice-cream?

Do you make your own shakes?
