Classic Strawberry Milkshake Recipe Using #Lactaid

As someone with a lactose sensitivity, cream-based sauces are largely off-limits. However, Melissa d’Arabian from the Food Network has concocted a delicious recipe for Chicken with Creamy Mushroom Sauce using Lactaid products. She debuted this recipe on the Today show recently: Watch It Here.

I have been using Lactaid products in my kitchen a ton lately. Now that it’s strawberry season and the farmer’s markets are full of sweet locally grown strawberries, one of my favorite things to make are delicious strawberry milkshakes. It’s really hard for my son and I though, because we are both sensitive to milk and other dairy products. That is why I make my own strawberry milkshakes at home!

Strawberry Milkshake Recipe

Classic Strawberry Milkshake Recipe

  • 2 cups Lactaid Whole Milk
  • About 8 frozen strawberries (I like to freeze my strawberries rather than use ice, since then the strawberry flavor won’t be watered down)
  • 4 tbsp homemade strawberry syrup (cooled)

1. In a blender, add half the strawberries and 1 cup milk. Blend on high.

2. When the first batch is thoroughly combined, add the rest of the milk and the strawberries until there are no chunks of strawberry left.

3. Blend in the strawberry syrup on low.

4. Enjoy! Makes 2 large servings.

Want to make it even creamier? Add a few spoonfuls of Lactaid Vanilla ice cream!


How to make Strawberry Syrup:

In a small sauce pan, combine 6-8 large ripe strawberries and 3 tbsp water. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Add 3 tbsp sugar (or honey, if you prefer). Stir constantly until sugar is mixed in and strawberries are soft. Take a stick blender (I have this one) and blend the mixture together. Voila! Homemade strawberry syrup that makes your milkshake taste fabulous! You can also use it to top cheesecake or strawberry shortcake.
