Pudding Milkshake Recipe

This pudding milkshake recipe is the perfect snack break. What’s more, It’s so simple and quick to make, all you’re going to need are 3 ingredients and a blender. One of the key ingredients that this recipe requires, however, is instant pudding. It’s an instant food mix that comes in powder form mostly used when making puddings or pie fillings, which will give your milkshake a thicker consistency. 

You can find instant pudding within the gelatine aisle at a grocery store. However, if you don’t want to resort to using artificial flavors, you may substitute the instant pudding with either sour cream or yogurt. Ideally, instant pudding contributes to the creamy texture of the milkshake. So, if you ever use an alternative, it’s better to reduce the milk the recipe requires to add so the consistency will still stay the same. With the help of the ice cream, your pudding milkshake still remains a faithful sweet tooth drink without disrupting the texture. 

To pair with this sugary milkshake is our Bojangles Copycat French Fries recipe to balance the sweet and salty flavor. It’s not the healthiest pairing in the world but it’s a snack you deserve. So, let’s head right into the kitchen and begin!

Tip: You can top this milkshake with a dollop of whipped cream before serving!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use healthier substitutes for this milkshake recipe?

Definitely! You can use lactose-free milk, oat milk, or even vegan ice cream to lower sugar content.

How much will the flavor alter if I use sour cream or yogurt?

Instant pudding is known for being a sugary element in the milkshake, while sour cream and yogurt have a slightly sour flavor. You might need to add more milk or less substitute so the sour cream or yogurt does not overpower the rest of the ingredients.
