3 Non-Chocolate Milkshake Recipes To Add To Your Menu


Keeping a variety of milkshake options on your menu is a great way to appeal to guests, but it seems that everywhere you look, milkshake recipes call for some chocolate ingredient or another. That's all well and good for people who love chocolate, but what about those rare customers who don't like chocolate? Make them feel included by adding some or all of these non-chocolate milkshake recipes to your menu. 

Lemon Meringue Pie

This light and tasty milkshake is perfect for summer. If you cannot find the hard mini marshmallows called for in the recipe, you can use regular mini marshmallows instead. 

Ingredients for one milkshake:

  • 2 large scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 1/4 cup lemon pie filling
  • 2 tablespoons hard mini marshmallows (the variety found in hot chocolate mix)
  • 2 tablespoons graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 cup whole milk

Add the pie filling, ice cream, and milk to your glass, and use your milkshake machine to blend these ingredients together. Stir in the marshmallows and top with the graham cracker crumbs just before serving. 

Strawberries and Cream

Another fruity milkshake, this one is made with real strawberries for a fresh surprise. Try obtaining the strawberries locally when they're in season for an even more delicious treat.


  • 1 scoop vanilla ice cream
  • 1 scoop strawberry ice cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/3 cup sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1/3 cup whipped cream

Combine the ice cream and milk in a glass. Mix with an ice cream wand until smooth and then stir the strawberries in gently. Place the whipped cream on top and fold it into the top portion of the smoothie a little before serving.

Triple Caramel Surprise

Caramel syrup, caramel candies, and crunchy toffee on top: what could be better? You could make this one with coffee-flavored ice cream for a twist.


  • 2 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons caramel syrup
  • 2 tablespoons chewy caramel candies, cut into bits
  • 2 tablespoons crunchy toffee bits (the variety without chocolate)

Combine the ice cream, milk, and caramel syrup in a glass. Mix with a milkshake wand machine until smooth but not until the caramel swirls have completely worked their way into the ice cream. Stir in the chewy caramel candies and sprinkle with the toffee bits before serving. 

Play around with your milkshake machine after hours and give these shakes a try for yourself. You'll love them as much as your customers do.

How to Save Money When Eating Out

Welcome to my website. My name is Joanne Taylor. My family and I love eating out at restaurants, but with there being five of us, it can get expensive. In order to be able to continue to indulge in the luxury of eating at restaurants, my husband and I have come up with ways to order and save money. We always thought that ordering kids meals for young children was the cheapest way to go. But we found in many cases, it’s less expensive to order one regular meal and let our two youngest children split it. We make use of coupons whenever possible, restaurant daily specials, early bird specials, and other money savers. I’m going to share some of the ways we’ve been creative in the hope that you will find some useful tips.
