What You'll Learn in This Recipe
My goal with every recipe is to teach you a new skill in the kitchen. In this recipe Skrewball milkshake you'll learn:
- How to make a boozy milkshake: You don't need as much alcohol as you may think
- A secret ingredient for thick milkshakes: Plus, it adds a bite of chocolate
- How to decorate a milkshake: Add lots of fun toppings to make the milkshake fun & inviting to eat
The best thing about this recipe? All you need is four ingredients! They each serve a very important role, so let's chat about them:
- Ice Cream: An essential in a milkshake (duh)! I prefer vanilla ice cream for this recipe, but feel free to substitute it with chocolate ice cream. You can even try using homemade ice cream (recipe coming soon) to make this milkshake extra delicious!
- Milk of Choice: You can really use any milk that you choose for this milkshake. However, for a thicker, more rich milkshake, opt for whole milk. For a light version, use plant-based milk.
- Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey: The best, arguably most important, part of this whole recipe is the peanut butter whiskey. You can purchase Skrewball at many different liquor stores or online at Drizly. Make sure you don't add much more alcohol than the recipe calls for otherwise, your milkshake will become too watery. Trust me - a little goes a long way! This stuff is strong!

- Chocolate Malted Milk Powder: A great tip to make your milkshakes thick - add a bit of malted milk powder. It's a game-changer. I opted for chocolate malted milk powder to add a touch of chocolate.
Tools & Equipment
There are a few tools and equipment you'll need to make these delicious Skrewball whiskey milkshakes:
- Blender: Obviously you'll need something to blend all the ingredients together. This Ninja blender is affordable and does a great job!
- Mason Jars: This isn't essential for this recipe, but if you're trying to recreate the look of a freakshake, you're going to want to get a mason jar. You can see from the pictures just how cute the presentation looks.
- Toppings: Another optional, but a highly recommended piece of these Skrewball milkshakes. I used chocolate sauce, graham crackers, Reese's cups (large and mini), and cookie dough bites. And of course, don't forget the whipping cream (get the stuff made with real cream - it's so much better).
- Straws: Straws are both functional and add a nice presentation to the milkshake!
Recipe Frequently Asked Questions
Of course! I found that vanilla allows the flavor of the Skrewball peanut butter whiskey to best shine. However, feel free to try out chocolate ice cream, or another flavor of your choice. Who knows what new, delicious flavors you might discover!
Nope! You can use whatever you have on hand. Just remember that whole milk or even heavy whipping cream will result in a richer, heavier milkshake. On the other hand, plant-based milk will yield a lighter version.
If you want to make a freakshake, you'll need to use both servings listed on the recipe card below. Grab a large mason jar, lots of toppings, and get to decorating. Make sure to check out the recipe video for some tips on decorating!
You don't want to make this milkshake too far ahead of time. However, if you're making a big batch and need to keep some of the milkshakes from melting, you can rest them in the freezer for a few minutes. Make sure not to keep them in the freezer for an extended time (longer than 30 minutes) or they'll start to firm up.
