Easy Jello Milkshake

I went to the grocery store today.  Tuesdays and Thursdays are the best days to find specials in my area!  It was just such a hot day here that as I hurried up and down past the rows of  boxes and canned goods in Walmart, all I could seem to think about was cold drinks, ice cream and watermelon.  I came out of there with lots of cooling items, needless to say!  Today, as I brace for another Texas summer, I'm happy to share a quick little recipe for a milkshake that's cheap and easy.  I like to change the directions up a bit;  I replace the ice cream with vanilla frozen yogurt or ice milk (less fat and calories) and use sugar-free jello pudding.  You can get really creative with this....banana cream pudding-then top the finished shake with whipped cream and crumbled Nilla wafers!   How about a  chocolate shake with whipped cream and Oreo crumbles.  Oh!  So many possibilities!  Enjoy :)

Jello Milkshake

1 C milk
1 pkg. (4 serving size)  Jello pudding mix
1 pint ice cream (vanilla)

Put all ingredients in the blender and give it a whirl for 30 seconds.  Happy summertime sippin'!  Put the cushions on the wicker chairs;  it's time for some porch-sittin'.

  1. Hey Marcia! This looks so yummy. We get lured into the drive through for shakes all the time. I don't think I've ever tried using pudding mix for a shake. You are brave and I'm going to give his one a go. We have all the ingredients on hand.

  2. Hi Marcia,
    One of the special things that my "Honey Bunny" does for me is make me a Milk Shake every once in a while. I am giving him this recipe to try, maybe tonight. Hope you have a very special week end and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!
