Campus is Cookin’: Frosty Milkshake

As the sunny weather of spring arrives at Andover, this cold, thirst-quenching beverage will help reduce the frequency of your daily Susie’s runs. Making a homemade frosty milkshake is easy, tasty and affordable.

First, choose your favorite flavor of frozen yogurt being served. Chocolate frozen yogurt tastes best for a milkshake, but strawberry or vanilla will work too. Take a mug from Paresky Commons and fill it to the brim with frozen yogurt. Next, let the mug sit for about 40 seconds to let the frozen yogurt melt. The frozen yogurt can now be mixed easily. Transfer the frozen yogurt to a regular tall cup.

After that, the recipe depends on what flavor frozen yogurt you have decided to use. For chocolate, add one scoop of the hot chocolate mix that is available on the first floor of Paresky. Fill up three-fourths of your cup with the hot chocolate mix.

For vanilla frozen yogurt, head to Lower Left and add a few shakes of cinnamon and nutmeg into your cup. Then add a splash of half-and-half from the coffee station and fill the remainder of the cup with whole milk.

To make strawberry milkshakes, try spooning in a few tablespoonfuls of the strawberry syrup from the waffle bar into vanilla frozen yogurt. You can even put a couple strawberries in a bowl and microwave them to add some texture to your milkshake. Carefully soften the strawberries with a spoon for a smooth milkshake. Top your mixture with whole milk until the cup is three-fourths full.

Take a spoon and mix everything in your cup. Stir the concoction to a desired texture. If you’re feeling especially indulgent, you can add a dollop of whipped cream from the waffle bar. A cold, creamy milkshake is the perfect treat for your sweet-tooth.
