Is there anything better than the juicy, sweet flavor of berries in the spring time? Depending where you live you may have access to some really great varieties outside of the typical blueberry, strawberry, and raspberry. If you're in Maine, the smaller wild blueberries are epic, or if you're in the northwest, boysenberries are your go-to.
This easy True Scoops milkshake recipe packs in so much berry flavor because of the Strawberry ice cream, fresh or frozen berries, and the added cookie blended in makes it extra tasty. We like to use Biscoff cookies because they're crunchy and have a warm, buttery, cinnamon type of flavor that is a match made in heaven with all the berries and cream flavors of the milkshake.
What makes milkshakes so magical is that they are impossible to mess up. You can add it in whatever you have on hand - freezer burned ice cream, a hard block of frozen berries, etc. Add in whatever milk you have on hand and presto - a slurpable, easy, tasty milkshake!
Did you know there's a preferred method to adding things to the blender? Always add your liquids first because it'll give the blades room to move. Then add your fruit, and then scoops of ice cream. Start the blender on low and gradually increase the speed. If your blender comes with a tamper, you may want to use it just to get all the ingredients incorporated.
Is your milkshake too thick? Add a splash of milk. Too thin? Add another scoop of ice cream or more fruit.
A wise man once said, "Always add whipped cream and a cherry to your milkshake." Ok no one said that but we think it's a good idea.

We like to mix and match our berry flavors - try blending in blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, or a medley of all three! A lot of grocery stores carry berry medleys that make this easy and affordable.
Biscoff cookies pair really well with the berry flavor because they have a warm, slight cinnamon flavor, but switch it up with your favorite cookies! It's a real versatile recipe!
