Thick Milkshake with ice cream
A Cheerios Cereal milkshake without ice cream

Blending ice cream with just milk may look like a milkshake but something will be missing when you taste it. Simply, it will taste flat (lacking zest) 
All milkshakes need a “flavor kicker” added to it which is called fountain syrup flavoring, the milkshake will then taste creamy and rich.

1 cup water
2 cups sugar
3 tablespoons honey 
2 tablespoons corn syrup
Pinch of nutmeg  What is a Pinch?
pinch salt
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

Bring everything to a full boil, except the vanilla extract, stir rapidly with a wood spoon. Remove from heat and mix in the vanilla. Chill until very cold in refrigerator, store in a covered glass jar. 

Makes enough syrup for 4 milkshakes

6 scoops ice cream, vanilla or chocolate or strawberry
4 tablespoon fountain syrup (1/4 cup)
You control the thickness of the shake by adding very small amounts of whole regular milk at a time, pour the milk slowly while blending on a medium high speed until you reach your desired thickness. Simply put: the more ice cream and less milk makes the shake thicker.

To make a malted milkshake add two tablespoon of malted milk powder. Malted milk powder can be found in most supermarket food stores.
