Milkshake recipes for everyone to try. These all use either milk or ice cream (or both) as a base, plus added fruits, extracts and flavorings. As with all forms of drink types, they may well need to be adjusted for taste, especially sweetness.
Try some of the milkshake recipes, add and subtract some of the ingredients, maybe combine a recipe or two, adjust for your own particular taste and enjoy.
Diabetics of course need to be aware of sweetness and carbohydrates, and others will need to watch for nut allergies such as those found in Peanut Butter. Lactose intolerance would need a change in the milk and ice cream department, perhaps to rice milk or soy based ingredients.
