Add all the ingredients (strawberries, milk, cream, sugar and vanilla extract) to the blender and blend until smooth.
Delicious and fresh strawberry milkshake is ready to serve, you can pour the milkshake from the blender to glass cups for serving.

Tips To Make Perfect Milkshake Without Ice Cream
We mostly make milkshakes without ice cream for these reasons – easy to make, less calorie & fat and also easily availble ingredients.
Even when you do not have ice cream at home, you can easily make delicious milkshakes without ice creams.
To make it delicious and creamy, make sure to use whole milk and also use heavy cream or whipped cream.
In case, you do not have cream, you can make strawberry milkshake even with just using strawberries, milk and sugar and a little vanilla extract!
For the best results, make sure to use good quality, fresh ingredients.
Using ripe, juicy strawberries make the milkshake more delicious!
Also, once you have prepared the strawberry milkshake, make sure to serve it immediately for best results!
As I mentioned earlier, if you are making it for serving later, you have to refrigerate the prepared milkshake until you are ready to use and if you are storing it for more than a day, it is always recommended to freeze the milkshake which will keep it fresh for few more days.
I have used fresh strawberries to make this strawberry milkshake but you may also use frozen strawberries or even frozen milk (freeze in ice cube trays for easy use) to make the milkshake more frothy & cold.
Also you may adjust the amount of sugar or use natural sweteners based on your preferences.
You can adjust the amount of strawberries in the recipe too, if you want to adjust the consistency of the milkshake.
For a more thicker consistency like in smoothies, you can add more strawberries.
Though we made this milkshake without ice cream, you can always add ice cream to make it even more rich & more flavorful!
You can add vanilla ice cream or strawberry ice cream to make strawberry milkshake (just use a couple of spoons of ice cream for a lighter milkshake or you can add 1 to 2 cups of ice cream for a more richer & filling milkshake).
To make strawberry banana milkshake, which is also very popular, just add one ripe banana also to the recipe to make a thicker milkshake or you can replace one cup of strawberries with one banana to make an evenly flavored strawberry banana milkshake of the same consistency.
In this milkshake recipe, I used vanilla extract to flavor the milkshake. You may use strawberry extract or essence along with vanilla to make it even more colorful in pink and for more strawberry flavor.
Notes: For best results, serve chilled strawberry milkshake so in case you want to save the milkshake for later use, you can refrigerate the milkshake.
You can also freeze the prepared milkshake in freezer safe containers for later use.
There are freezer bags which will help you to save the milkshakes in decided portions so you don’t have to worry about your milkshake getting spoiled if want to use it at a later time.
Or you can easily freeze the milkshake in ice cube trays for longer storage.
I have never saved the milkshake for more than a few days, so I can’t advise you on how long exactly you can save it in the freezer.
However, I am sure you can use it if you quickly freeze it and use within few days ( but I seriously believe you can save for more days but make sure you find this information rightly for safety reasons).
When you are ready to drink the milkshake, just move them over to the refrigerator a few minutes before, if necessary, you can lightly blend it again in the blender.
Fresh strawberry milkshake is naturally delicious and colorful with a light pink color, which looks so pretty and lovely.
You can enjoy this simple strawberry milkshake recipe on busy mornings before you head out for work or you can enjoy it at your own home whenever you want to have it!
This easy homemade strawberry milkshake is so yummy and easy to make and it is made without ice cream, but feel free to add few spoons of vanilla flavored ice cream or strawberry ice cream to make it more and more delicious and enjoy!
Can You Make This Recipe Vegan?
To make it a vegan milkshake, simply replace the mil and cream with any of your favorite vegan options.
Instead of milk, you may use almond milk or coconut milk. You can even make your own homemade almond milk to use in recipes like this milkshake to make it vegan!
You may skip the cream or use cashew cream or coconut cream for a different flavor.
