Shake It!

A vanilla milkshake made with Tillamook Ice Cream at Lindsey’s Lattes in Tillamook, OR.

Hooray, it’s National Vanilla Milkshake Day! Finally, an excuse to drink vanilla milkshakes all day long! (Not that we ever needed an excuse before…) Want to know how to make the best vanilla milkshake around? Here’s a secret: Use one of Tillamook’s three delicious and unique vanilla ice cream flavors. To help you make this crucial decision, here’s the down low on the Three Musketeers of the vanilla ice cream world:

1. Tillamook Old-Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream – A flavor straight out of your childhood! Rich, creamy, smooth, and silky. Classically delicious. Milkshake tip: If you want to be experimental, I hear Root Beer Float Shakes are the next big thing.

2. Tillamook Vanilla Bean Ice Cream – All the tasty benefits of vanilla ice cream, plus tons of crushed vanilla beans! Extra vanilla means extra flavor and extra fun. Milkshake tip: Swirl in some chocolate, caramel, and/or strawberry sauce to make a Sundae Shake!

3. Tillamook French Vanilla Ice Cream – Ah, oui oui! This creamy and decadent flavor is more of a custard style, which means it’s super rich and fancy. Think: “Paris in an ice cream carton.” Milkshake Tip: Try throwing in some cinnamon for a little extra kick.

Now that you have been versed in the ways of Tillamook Vanilla Ice Cream, young grasshopper, go now and put forth some milk and vanilla ice cream in your blender and celebrate National Vanilla Milkshake Day. You have all the knowledge to choose one of Tillamook’s flavors to make the best vanilla milkshake yet! (Or you could use all three to really “shake” things up!)
