Be sure to select ripe and dark strawberries, they tend to be more sweet and less tart. I have added vanilla bean pith for flavoring. You an add vanilla essence or cardamom powder or cinnamon powder or even saffron will be good. I had about 1/2 cup of whipped cream in hand and used it here, you can add 2-3 scoops of vanilla or strawberry ice cream too. If you don’t prefer ice cream or whipped cream in your milkshake you can leave it out too.
