National Vanilla Milkshake Day - June 20

NATIONAL VANILLA MILKSHAKE DAY

National Vanilla Milkshake Day is happily celebrated by many people on June 20th of each  year.   You can celebrate this day by making a homemade vanilla flavored milkshake for you and your family to enjoy today.

The first time the term “milkshake” was used in print was in 1885.  At this time, milkshake referred to an alcoholic beverage which was a whiskey drink described as a “study, healthful eggnog type of drink with eggs, whiskey and etc., served as a tonic as well as a treat”.

By 1900,  a milkshake was often referred to as “wholesome drinks made with chocolate, strawberry or vanilla syrups”.  A few years later in the early 1900′s, people began asking for this new treat with a scoop of ice cream.  It was then by the 1930’s that milkshakes were a popular drink in malt shops everywhere.

Maybe you want to top off your vanilla milkshake with a little whipped cream  and a cherry on top!!

 Following are a couple of delicious “tried and true” recipes for you:
