Thank you.

Won't work, been there and done that as kid.


The drink will separate and otherwise congeal into a nasty mess either while it freezes or thaws to a drinkable state.


Freezing a milkshake *might* work if you could flash freeze and keep the thing at stable temps < zero degrees. But this is not possible at home, and worse many modern freezers have automatic defrosting features. This make it hard enough to keep ice cream for long periods much less a milkshake.

We freeze milk shakes, Blizzards from Dairy Queen, and Frosties from Wendy's all the time. Doesn't hurt a thing.
Hazel, I saw where you've heard not to freeze milk. My parents did it for years and I still do from time to time. Tastes the same to me. A friend of my brother used to joke about it with "What's wrong? Haven't you ever heard of ice milk before?" lol
On the Blizzard and Frosty, just don't do like my wife did and forget to take the spoon out. Can't get it out and hard to eat around it.

I think you just explained how Edy's does it (or did it)- flash freeze.

I have one in my freezer now - just to test it. Hope I don't forget and leave it in there too long. Some days I want one, some days not.
