Traditionalists, this is for you. I recently posted a delicious strawberry milkshake/soft serve recipe that contains a healthy dose of okra, but since not all of you are on the okra train yet, I thought that a Classic Strawberry Milkshake might be in order. And this one might come in handy if you forget to buy that extra bag of frozen diced okra at the grocery store.
I just realized that I don’t have a lot of plain, classic recipes, at least not in the Drinks & Shakes department. I have lots of fast food copycats, lots of Briana-inspired recipes (like this delicious PB&J Milkshake), and a few off-the-wall okra creations, but “normal” doesn’t seem to be in my vocabulary. This shake is my contribution to normalcy. Savor it, because I don’t intend to make this a habit. 😉 (Although the shake is pretty good, I have to say.)
The cream in this recipe makes it more like a traditional milkshake, and since that’s the only significant source of fats, the shake is still decently light, especially if this is your meal. The recipe makes quite a large milkshake (close to a quart), so if you’re having it as dessert after a meal you may need to share with someone or cut the recipe in half.
