Me again. I forgot - I use all half and half to make the shake, sometimes with a little heavy whipping cream tossed in. If I'm going to have something like this, I like it rich.

I wouldn't use powdered sugar because of what's in it to keep it powdery. Instead, I would use baker's (superfine) sugar, which has the crystals cut extremely small in order to dissolve faster. It also allows more air to be incorporated into the drink, which will make it lighter without causing it to become watery. I'm a retired pastry chef, and that's what we used for our shakes in the restaurant. I also line the sides of the glass with chantilly cream (whipped cream made with vanilla extract and baker's sugar) before pouring the shake into it. When you're having a shake, who's counting calories?

Response: Thank you Pam Mann for sharing the tips about how to make milkshake thick.

I wold use honey instead of sugar and if you want a drink that will keep you going all day add a raw egg. I know, you're going ooooh, but you won't know it's there. Everyone has eggnog at Christmas. The eggs are raw in that too. Drink as soon as made or keep in the fridge no longer than 24 hours.

I loved it. But powdered sugar would be better than sugar. Other than that I loved it and all my family did to.
