So I don't have a blender, but I have a mixer. I was wondering do you think we could make milkshakes with it? I think it would be possible if you use it on low.

You cannot make a milkshake in a blender or with a mixer. It melts the ice cream.

Put in big glasses and stir with a spoon just till it's slightly mixed. If you want crushed candy bar in it, add scoop ice cream then candy then ice cream till filled and then stir.  We usually use milk & ice cream to make homemade milkshakes.

Well thank you. I will have to try that also. I am just trying to figure out cool treats for the kids. It has been very warm in our apt. Even with the ac going. Too many extra people staying with us. So crowded and no space or privacy.

Way easier to make rootbeer floats. A Dream float is orange juice & vanilla ice cream.

TY I think I will make another post for these type of ideas. I have four teens and on weekend a two year old here to try and keep cool. I am hoping they move out soon. She just got a job and with her first check she is gonna put a deposit down on a apt. They have been here for over a month and I am tired and getting broke. Her kids are well behaved and she does help with the cleaning. She is not trying to mooch just in a bad spot.

 Instead of milkshakes, which won't work well in the mixer, try making floats or ice cream sodas. Coke floats, Root beer floats, us any flavor of soda, or ever kool aid will work too.
