MMMMMMM…Milkshakes. These are my favorite drinks, especially when I’m thirsty but need something filling. I can’t get enough of the handmade milkshakes; you know the old school kind? I enjoy Steak ‘N Shake’s, the Dairy Barn’s (from my hometown), Baskin Robbins, and Culvers. Dairy Queen’s shakes are ok, but I’m not much for the soft serve mixed with syrup type. McDonalds keeps it quick by having a machine premake the milkshakes so all you have to do is pull down the lever to release their faux shakes. The invention of the blender allowed the milkshake to begin their modern, whipped, and frothy form. Malted milk drinks are made with malted milk powder and was invented in 1897. The ingredients in malted milk powder are great for digested restorative health for infants and children.
The real beginning: In 1885, milkshakes were an alcoholic whiskey drink. They were described as a “sturdy, healthful, eggnog type of drink, with eggs, whiskey, etc, served as a tonic as well as a treat!”
