Some tips for making delicious milkshakes

To make your smoothies delicious and appetizing, remember a few simple rules.

  1. Use only quality ingredients.
  2. Take the ice cream out of the freezer 15 to 20 minutes before you start making it, and it should be slightly soft.
  3. The fat content of the milk should not exceed 3.2%.
  4. For the milk to whip better, it should be cold. To do this, put it in the freezer for one hour.
  5. Thoroughly wash fruits and berries before cooking.
  6. The ice cream is better to take a neutral, creamy (plombard), unless otherwise required by the recipe.
  7. Serve the drinks in nice glasses. Glass glasses are better so that you can see the unique texture of the cocktails. Miniature bottles and pretty jars with lids and straws are also suitable for serving.
