HOW TO MAKE VANILLA MILKSHAKE WITHOUT A BLENDER

In order to make this milkshake without a blender, you’ll want to choose one of two methods.

Note: both of these require leaving out the ice, unless you want chunks of ice floating around in your milkshake since it can’t be incorporated without a blender. Also, make sure the ingredients are chilled beforehand.

The first, is mixing all of the ingredients together together in a mixing bowl with a whisk. Whisk the ingredients together well and carefully pour the mixture into serving glasses.

Second, you can place the ingredients into a large jar with lid and give it a good shake. Pour the milkshake into serving glasses and enjoy!

CAN I MAKE THIS VANILLA MILKSHAKE WITHOUT COCONUT CREAM?

You sure can. We realize that coconut cream isn’t for everyone and you can definitely make some changes to the recipe to remove it.

There are a couple options you can explore to replace the coconut cream in this milkshake.

  • Almond milk (1 cup)
  • Cashew milk (1 cup; our personal favorite because of its thicker consistency)
  • Coconut milk (1 cup)

If you decide to use any of these, make sure to recalculate the nutrition information based on the brand you choose.

WHAT IS COCONUT CREAM?

Coconut cream is basically the same as coconut milk but in a thickened form. The cream has less water content than the milk but has a thicker, paste-like consistency.

Coconut cream is used often in cooking and can be used for a variety of ingredient substitutions, especially for those who are looking to replace dairy in their diets.

The cream is also popularly used as a replacement for whipping cream in dishes that require a cream to create a rich flavor.

You can’t exactly buy coconut cream in your local grocery store or supermarket, but the process to make the cream is very easy. All it takes is canned coconut milk and patience.

Read on below for instructions on how to make your own coconut cream for this delicious recipe.

HOW TO MAKE COCONUT CREAM

Making coconut cream is much easier than you might think. You can’t outright buy the cream, but you can follow these simple instructions and have your own ready within just a few hours.

Don’t worry; the work needed doesn’t equal hours worth of work, or even close.

  • Buy canned coconut milk from your local grocery store
  • Place the can of coconut milk in the refrigerator
  • Leave the can for at least 4 hours; 8 hours or overnight is preferred
  • After the can has properly chilled and the cream has had time to rise to the top, carefully open the can and scoop the cream out
  • Voila! Enjoy the coconut cream!

That’s all there is to make your own coconut cream! So simple and easy!

IS COCONUT CREAM AND CREAM OF COCONUT THE SAME?

They are not the same. Coconut cream, as described above, is a thick cream that is derived from coconut milk containing less water. It is not sweetened but has a mild taste and very creamy texture.

Cream of coconut, however, is a sweetened version of coconut cream. It is used widely in a variety of drinks, main dishes, and desserts throughout the world. The sweetened cream is especially prevalent in Asian and Polynesian cuisine.

You can buy cream of coconut in cans, much like coconut milk. However, it is full of sugar and added ingredients, making it unsuitable for a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle.

When buying canned coconut milk to make coconut cream, be careful not to accidentally grab a can of cream of coconut. They are often sold in the same aisle of the grocery store, if not side-by-side.

One is wonderfully suited for this recipe and the other is full of sugar.
