There is now a few days of warm weather left and what better way to soak up the sunshine than with a frosty milkshake, at home. But what constitutes a decent milkshake and just how can somebody at home re create something as delicious and thick as they would buy at a restaurant?
At the latest Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival, I’d what I believed was the very best milkshake from Bill’s Burger and Bar — an easy cookies and cream concoction. I’d to get out the secret of theirs to a booming milkshake. I caught up with the creator, Brett Reichler, Corporate Executive Chef for BR Guest Hospitality, many days later on for the solution.
As per Chef Reichler, there is no such thing as a terrible milkshake. “It’s quite a individual point — a person might love a thicker shake over a thinner, or maybe vice versa,” he said. “I prefer a cookies and cream milkshake on the heavier side.” While the primary choice of his option is easy, he has produced everything from traditional chocolate and vanilla milkshakes to well known flavors like the Apple Pie, Cheesecake, Strawberry and a Campfire Milkshake with toasted marshmallow on top.
“If you do not own a blender, you are able to also make use of a stick blender, and that performs equally as effectively,” he added. “If you do not have each one of those, get a stainless steel bowl along with a whisk, you must never deny yourself a milkshake since you do not have a blender.”
Chef Brett Reichler’s Tips for the best Milkshake at Home
1. Put the cup of yours in the freezer to get a good chill on it.
2. Make sure the ice cream of yours is tempered, delicate but not runny. That level is actually crucial — if the ice cream is simply too difficult, you will add an excessive amount of milk and thin it out, diluting the focus of the ice cream. You are able to also use frozen yogurt and low fat ice cream.
3. Take 3 hearty scoops of the favorite ice cream of yours, bring 2 ounces of milk and any flavorings you would like (chocolate syrup, candy or maybe cookie pieces). Don’t add ice as it’ll simply water it down. In case you like your milkshakes thinner, add more milk.
4. If you are adding cookies to the milkshake of yours, Brett recommends adding 3 roughly crushed cookies to the ice cream.
5. Top it with whipped cream and extra cookies/candy in case you wish.
