Magic Milkshakes and Slushies

Two Ice Cold Summer Treats!!!!
Of course no oven needed!!
Don't have icecream???
Well maybe you can still make these milkshakes. No icecream needed!!
Magic Milkshakes (aka Wendy's Frosty)
Ingredients needed
1 1/2- 2 cups cold water
1 1/2 Cups nonfat dry milk
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp. vanilla
1 - 1 1/2 trays ice cubes
1 TBLS canola or corn oil
5 second spray of nonstick cooking spray
Place all ingredients in blender. Use less water for thicker shakes and more for thinner shakes. Blend for a full 2 minutes. This is where I messed up the first time. They were very icy. I just blended until it was mixed. It's very important to do it for 2 minutes.
You can even add variations. The 3rd time we did this we added oreos! YUM!!!
Thanks MomAdvice and Hillbilly Housewife!
This is a new favorite around here!!

I think I found what to do with all those kool-aid packets I have...
Homemade Slushies!
Oh they were soooo good and took 3 minutes to make!
Simple Ingredients needed...
2 cups cold water
1 packet Kool Aid
2/3 cup sugar
1 tray or 4 cups ice
Blend in blender for full 1 minute.
Stir and blend another minute if you still see ice chunks
Pour and enjoy!
I've always loved slushies but
rarely ever get them... until now!!!

Snow White said...

fun! now, i know the cooking spray is needed... but can you decrease the oil at all?

Megan said...

I didn't add all the oil I just poured a touch in and didn't notice anything from reducing it??? I would try it without and see what happens because I have no idea what it does!

Brenda said...

I used to have those homemade slushies all the time when I was a kid, they are yummy

Julie said...

we love to make these! thanks for the great tip on adding oreos. my kids love to get oreo milkshakes but those things are way to high $$ for me. adding oreos to magic milkshakes is perfect for my budget!

We make the slushies almost on a daily basis, but we usually add Ice Cream, a few scoops of vanilla works great! ;) My original recipe came from MomAdvice also.
Thanks for sharing!
