Steak 'n Shake Milkshake

Steak and Shake serves steakburgers and hand-dipped milkshakes to its customers. Making the Steak and Shake milkshake recipe is fairly simple, since the restaurant uses real ice cream and milk in the drink. Along with its classic and specialty shakes, Steak and Shake also sells “Side by Side” milkshakes, which include two different milkshake flavors in the same glass.[1]

  • Steak and Shake sells several milkshake varieties, including banana, chocolate, mocha, orange, strawberry, and vanilla.[6] The restaurant also makes specialty milkshakes featuring flavors such as Peanut Butter Cup, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Butter Pecan, Mint Cookies and Cream, and Turtle Caramel Nut.[7] To make the different flavors outside of the Steak and Shake Vanilla Milkshake recipe, try one of the following variations:
  1. Add in 7 sliced strawberries to make the Steak and Shake Strawberry Milkshake recipe.[8]
  2. Add 2 tbsp of chocolate syrup for the Steak and Shake Chocolate Milkshake recipe.[9]
  3. Combine the vanilla recipe with 1 tbsp of instant coffee and 2 tbsp of chocolate syrup to make the Steak and Shake Mocha Milkshake recipe.[10]
  4. Add in pieces of crumbled chocolate chip cookie dough to make the Steak and Shake Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Milkshake recipe.[11]
  5. Add ¼ cup chocolate syrup and a drop of peppermint extract to make the Steak and Shake Mint Cookies and Cream Milkshake recipe.[4]
  • If you’d like to make a healthier version of the classic Steak and Shake vanilla milkshake, use a fat-free vanilla ice cream brand and replace the whole milk with skim milk or rice milk. You could also add silken tofu to the mixture for a bit of protein.[9]
