This refreshing Blueberry Milkshake is the perfect treat for a warm day! With just a few simple ingredients it's creamy, flavorful and delicious!
I love milkshakes. They are the perfect warm weather treat. And this blueberry version is a unique take on the classic that adds a "healthier" component by using wild frozen blueberries. Antioxidants anyone?
Just a little ice cream, frozen blueberries, milk and a touch of lemon juice and maple syrup make this simple and oh so yummy Blueberry Milkshake shine.

I love this Ninja Blender and use is almost daily.
- Ice cream: I like using vanilla bean ice cream for this recipe but you can use vanilla ice cream or even blueberry flavored ice cream if you can find it.
- Frozen blueberries: Feel free to use any frozen blueberries you like but I love using Wyman's of Maine Wild Frozen Blueberries.
- Milk: I recommend using whole milk for the texture and flavor but feel free to use 2% or skim if you prefer.
- Lemon juice: I think a little lemon juice really brightens this recipe up. You can use fresh or bottled.
- Maple Syrup: I highly recommend using real maple syrup for this recipe, or honey if you prefer.
- Salt: A small pinch of salt really rounds out the flavors.
How to boost the antioxidants with wild blueberries
All blueberries are rich in antioxidants but wild blueberries, such as Wyman's of Maine Frozen Wild Blueberries, have about twice the antioxidants as regular berries.
If you'd like a less sweet version of this milkshake you can leave out the maple syrup. However, I highly recommend keeping it in. The ice cream is sweet but the blueberries and milk aren't so the little addition of sweetness works well.
Absolutely! Any kind of berry works well with this recipe, be it strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, etc. Or even mixed berries. Feel Free to get creative.
Yes, if you don't want to go full indulgence then you can replace the whole milk with 2% or skim milk. You can also substitute full fat ice cream for light ice cream or even vanilla frozen yogurt.
