One of my favorite things to eat in the summer is fruit, especially berries…all kinds of berries! And I also like making recipes with berries. This particular recipe for a Summer Berry Shake is super easy and tastes great on a hot day–it makes a nice dessert or afternoon snack when you’re wanting to keep cool!
This shake is made with frozen berries–you can use strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, or raspberries…and you can use just one kind of berry or mix in two, three or four different kinds. You can use vanilla ice cream or vanilla frozen yogurt…so this recipe is pretty versatile as well as simple!
Summer Berry Shake
SUMMER BERRY SHAKE by NancyC
- 1 quart (or 4 well-packed cups) vanilla ice cream or vanilla frozen yogurt
- 6 ounces (or 1 1/2 cups) unsweetened frozen berries (strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, and/or blueberries)
- 1 to 1 1/2 cups milk, soymilk, or almond milk (depending on how thick you want it–start with 1 cup)
Combine half of the ice cream (or frozen yogurt), berries, and milk in a blender and puree until smooth (you may need to stop occasionally to stir the mixture with a spoon–or you can let the ice cream soften a little before you begin, for easier mixing). Pour into 2 of the glasses. Follow same instructions with the remaining half of the ingredients, and pour into the rest of the glasses.

If you want to add a topping, you can add some whipped cream or sprinkle a few berries on top of each shake for a refreshing summer treat!
