Whip yourself up a homemade vanilla bean-nutmeg milkshake with blackberry swirl to enjoy on your deck this summer. Pair it with your favorite burger and fries!
What goes with burgers almost as well as fries? Milkshakes! And one of my favorite milkshakes happens to be blackberry so it was an easy decision to make this milkshake to go along with the burger I shared the other day.
I decided to make this milkshake lighter by using reduced fat milk and ice cream and I think it came out great, but feel free to use the high test versions. Just be sure to serve this with a wide straw or else the berries will clog it up!
One quick rant: Do you know what happens when you photograph a milkshake outside in 90+ temperatures? It melts and turns into flavored milk. Alas, another one of the perils of food blogging.
I’m also offering this up as part of a #NationalDairyMonth roundup of recipes this week. Check out the other dairy-centric recipes on display today below.

Two years ago: Nutella Waffles with Raspberry Syrup
- 1/2 pint fresh blackberries, plus more, for garnish
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup milk
- 10 oz. vanilla ice cream
- 1/2 vanilla bean, split and seeds scraped
- 1/8 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
- Combine blackberries and sugar in a small saucepan and cook, over low heat, until slightly thickened and sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Mash the blackberries slightly with a fork and let cool.
- In a blender, combine milk, ice cream, vanilla bean seeds and the nutmeg and blend until smooth. Fill a tall milkshake glass 1/3 of the way with some of the milkshake, add a few tablespoons of the cooled blackberry puree, fill 1/3 of the way with more milkshake, then a few tablespoons of the puree and finish with the remaining milkshake.
- Use a wide straw to stir and swirl the mixtures together. Garnish with a few fresh blackberries and serve immediately.
