National Vanilla Milkshake Day is happily enjoyed by many people on June 20th of each year.  You can celebrate this day by making a homemade vanilla milkshake for you and your family today.

The first time the term “milkshake” was used in print was in 1885.  This milkshake was a concoction of cream, eggs, and whiskey which was often served with other alcoholic tonics such as lemonades and soda waters

By 1900, a milkshake was often referred to as “wholesome drinks made with chocolate, strawberry or vanilla syrups.”  A few years later in the early 1900s, people began asking for this new treat with a scoop of ice cream.  It was then by the 1930s that milkshakes were a popular drink in malt shops everywhere.
