Peach Milkshake - the Steak N Shake Method

It was a very good day!  Farmer's market finds include some terrific Missouri Peaches!

Keep a few in the fridge for just grabbing and snacking.
Peach crumbles are coming soon, but here's what I did the first day...

Kansas, like most of the country has been hit hard with the drought and 100 plus degree days.  Too many to count and no real end in sight yet.  But Jackie and I had spent the morning out and about, and craved something cold an refreshing...

My very first "real" job was for Steak N Shake.  Back when they had curbies that ran your food out to your car.  But I also spent sometime inside, flippin burgers and making...SHAKES!

I do not own a real 50's style shake machine, stainless steel cups.  But I do have a food processor (blender would work as well).

Here's what I did...

1 Peach, peeled and ptted
6 small scoops of Vanilla Ice Cream (about 2 cups)
1/2 cup of Milk, I used 2%
More milk to thin as needed

And just process for 1 minute.  Check the thickness of the shake.  Some people like their shakes so thick you can stand a spoon in them.  Me, I like them thick, but not so thick that you can not use a straw.  I needed to add another 1/4 cup and process again for another 30 seconds.

Sweet, Creamy, Peachy and delicious...



  1. The peaches have been fantastic this year. I've tried to use them in just about everything I can think of. Love your shake. It will certainly cool you off.

  2. I really need to get on this milkshake bandwagon before the summer is over! Perfect peach usage.

  3. I'm going to try this peach milkshake . Thanks for sharing...
