My Milkshake Up

peach mango milkshakes and a movie + kroger giftcard giveaway

Thank you to Mirum shopper for partnering with Unlikely Martha. I’ve been compensated for this post, but we drink milkshakes and watch movies so this partnership is about as real as it gets.

Earlier in the summer I mentioned that I was devoting certain days of break to certain activities and Mondays were for movies. This week we added milkshakes into the mix. A week at Disney will wreck havoc on one’s pockets so let’s just say DIY milkshakes were right on time.

My son thought long and hard on this one and came up with a peach, mango collab. We ventured out to our neighborhood Kroger to pick up our ingredients. The base of our milkshakes were made with Promised Land Milk (whole version) and Breyers Vanilla ice cream.

My Milkshake Up

I grew up on Breyers, amazing how things bring back nostalgia. We had these real sundae glasses that looked like they came from a real ice cream shop and she would scoop my ice cream out with a stainless steel scooper.

I digress.

Anyway, Breyers tastes today like it did back then. Fresh, and creamy with no artificial growth hormones. Breyers has also vowed to only utilize sustainably harvested vanilla and fruit.

Promised Land Milk was new to me but states it has higher levels of protein and calcium that are void of any artificial growth hormones or antibiotics.

My Milkshake Up

I considered using canned fruit but figured fresh would do better so we washed and cut up our fruit.

I’m not even really sure how to cut a mango. Keeping my fingers out of the way is priority of course but getting around that seed in the middle gets me every time. If you have a better way, do tell.

My Milkshake Up

Topped 1 cup of milk and 3 ish scoops of ice cream with the fresh fruit and hit the blend button. Note, if you want a thicker shake use more ice cream.

Please don’t ask me what happened at the end of the movie. I was asleep. Again, Disney.

  1. Haven’t had a milkshake I haven’t loved! Maybe we should try adding fruit! Cherries are a fav here so that will be our next addition!

  2. I’m heading out to the farmer’s market this afternoon so I’ll have to see what fruits they have to make a milkshake because that just looks so good!

  3. This post brings back so many great memories of me being a child. I used to go to my grandmas where we would make homemade milkshakes together using fresh fruit and Breyers Ice Cream. Now I am a mom, my fmaily enjoys making homemade milkshakes. The act of making them together as well as enjoying them helps to create memories. I am all for that.

  4. Ah a peach mango milkshake sounds awesome! I love it. I make a lot of smoothies this time of year and use vanilla ice cream to do so. I’ll have to give your recipe a try! Its the perfect summer treat!

  5. Headed to the fruit stand tomorrow to find some goodies to mix into my shakes. Blueberries, strawberries, peaches – YUM

  6. I want to Milkshake Up My Summer by using Promised Land milk, Breyer’s vanilla ice cream, bananas and peanut butter cups! Yummy!!! Thanks for the chance! 🙂

  7. My three year old loves peaches. He’ll choose sliced peaches over a piece of candy, so we keep peaches on hand . I am looking forward to trying this, simply because we have the peaches and I love ice cream.

  8. I milkshake up my summer with fruits in abundance, my blender, canned cream of coconut and homemade vanilla then I use my ice cream maker to freeze it!

  9. This looks amazing!! I want to make a strawberry banana milkshake topped with sprinkles & whipped cream!

  10. This peach mango milkshake sounds (and looks) absolutely delicious! I definitely have to try this recipe. Those are my two favorite fruits so I know it’s going to taste great. Thanks for sharing.

  11. I usually make my milkshakes with bananas, avocado, or mango and rarely make them with peaches. However, I have to say that peaches are delicious in smoothies and milkshakes!! I love to freeze them and then make dairy-free ice cream!

  12. Yummy, this sounds like the perfect mix. I could eat peaches and mangos everyday. And who doesn’t love milkshakes. I need to try this recipe after our trip to the farmers market tomorrow.

  13. I learned a little trick when trying to make sure most of the mango wasn’t still attached to the hurl. LOL!

    Cut it in half or fourths and use a jar or a glass to scrape the mango from the hurl. It saves me time and fruit.

    And this smoothie sounds so delish. Baby boy got those fruit combos correct.
