How to make a Nutella Milkshake
Read on to discover a super quick and easy Nutella milkshake recipe that you can make with just three simple ingredients! The best part, you don’t need to be an expert in the kitchen, and you can quickly whip it up as a midnight snack too- it is literally that easy!
Step 1: Scoop vanilla ice cream into a blender. We used vanilla but it’s delish with chocolate too!
Step 2: Add milk (we used 2% but you can use whatever you like).
Step 3: Add Nutella
Now just blend on medium speed until the ingredients are mixed well (Ninja blenders are my all time favorite!). Add Nutella to the inside of a glass, pour your milkshake in and top with whipped cream for garnish!
The final step is the easiest: Enjoy!!! That’s not hard to do because this Nutella milkshake turned out SO good! It’s definitely satisfying our sweet tooth (and regular Nutella cravings)!
My eight year old daughter couldn’t wait to help me taste test these. She said it was the BEST shake and gave it two giant thumbs up. If you’re trying to use up that extra Nutella in the pantry, I can’t think of a better way to do it!
Can I Make Nutella Milkshake with Leftover Nutella?
Oh yes, you definitely can! If your Nutella jar has a little leftover around the sides, waiting to be scraped off, this can be the perfect way to use it. Pour half of your milk into a microwave safe cup and heat until warm. You don’t want to make it too hot because the Nutella container is plastic.
Now pour the milk into the Nutella container, screw the cap on tight and shake until the Nutella dissolves in the milk. Add the Nutella milk to the regular milk when you’re making your shake. Nutella is WAY too good to waste and this is the perfect way to get every last bit!
How do you make a Nutella milkshake without ice cream?
If you want to make your Nutella milkshake without ice cream, you can try this alternative Nutella milkshake recipe. Just combine the following ingredients in a blender:
- 1 tbsp Nutella
- 1 tbsp cream cheese
- 2 tsp simple syrup
- 1 cup milk
Mix until the ingredients are well blended. This recipe isn’t quite as thick and creamy as one with ice cream but it was still really tasty and we enjoyed it!
How Can I Make the 5 Ingredient Nutella Milkshake Healthier?
So you want to indulge a bit, but still want to keep it healthy (if you can). I feel you. Well, there’s a way, and you’re going to like it. If you have extra 30 minutes to spare, chop up some bananas, pop them in a ziploc bag and freeze them. Add them to the shake instead of your ice cream. This will not just make your 5 ingredient Nutella milkshake healthier, but will also lend it a nice thick and creamy texture that you’re looking for.
Another option is to swap your regular milk and opt for almond milk instead.
So what else can you use? If you’re wondering how to make your milkshake extra thick, just add more ice cream.
For a more chocolatey taste, you can use chocolate ice cream instead of vanilla. Whipped cream and peanut butter are two other excellent options that add bulk and a touch of richness to your shake.
Serving Ideas & Suggestions
Presentation is key if you’re making this for a buddy or a crowd, and honestly, it is actually pretty easy too! There are literally a ton of things you can do with milkshakes and make them look stunning.
First, pour it in a nice tall glass or a mason jar. Next, top it with a scoop of ice-cream or whipped cream. Got sprinkles? Chocolate chips? Add ‘em in too. Mini marshmallows look great in there as well! You can also drizzle a bit of chocolate syrup over the top!
