This easy recipe shows how to make a McDonald’s milkshake at home

Just when we thought it couldn’t get any worse than a chicken shortage at Nando’s, McDonald’s announces that milkshakes are off the menu – due to supply issues.

The fast food chain revealed earlier this week that it would be unable to sell milkshakes and bottled drinks at all of its 1,250 UK stores for the foreseeable future – but it’s aiming to get them back as soon as possible.

However, if the past year has taught us anything, it’s that we can adapt to the unexpected.

Thankfully, it seems sweet tooths won’t have to go without the creamy, sugary drink – as one recipe website is on hand to save the day.

Topsecret Recipes has shared an easy way to make the popular beverage at home – and it couldn’t be simpler.

The ‘copycat’ recipe calls for vanilla ice cream, milk and a choice of flavouring – that is, if you want the strawberry or chocolate versions.

Topsecret Recipes adds that the unlikely ‘secret ingredient’ for achieving these flavours may be something you already have in the cupboard – Nesquik.

After you’ve got all the components, just add these ingredients to a blender and blitz.

If you want a thicker shake, simply pop it in the freezer for a while (although we don’t blame you if you want to slurp it up straight away).

The recipe platform has slightly different ingredients and quantities depending on your flavour of choice.

Below is how you can give it a go at home, until the customer favourite returns to McDonald’s.

Homemade McDonald’s milkshake recipe:



  • 2 cups (300g) of vanilla ice cream
  • 1 ¼ cups (295ml) low fat milk
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar


  • 2 (300g) cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1 ¼ cups (295ml) low fat milk
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate Nesquik


  • 2 (300g) cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1 ¼ cups (295ml) of low fat milk
  • 3 tablespoons of strawberry Nesquik

Method (serves 2)

  1. Combine all the ingredients for the shake flavour of you choice in a blender and mix on a high, until smooth. Stop the blender, stir and blend again, if necessary, to combine the ingredients.
  2. Pour into cups.
