This creamy Nutella Milkshake is easy to make, uses simple ingredients, and tastes great. It is the perfect option for anyone who loves rich, chocolatey hazelnut flavor.

For other delicious Nutella recipes, try these Nutella Cupcakes, Ferrero Rocher Brownies, or my one layer Chocolate Nutella Cake! I also have a super creamy Nutella Buttercream Frosting and Nutella Puppy Chow.

Why You’ll Love This Nutella Milkshake Recipe

  • 3 simple ingredients: ice cream, hazelnut spread, and milk. It doesn’t get easier than that.
  • Takes only minutes to make: 5 minutes to be exact and 10 minutes if you decide to rim your milkshake glass like I did.
  • Ultimate Nutella Milkshake flavor: creamy, rich, chocolatey hazelnut flavor.

Ingredients Needed

  • Vanilla Ice Cream: Use vanilla ice cream, vanilla frozen yogurt, or any other variety of vanilla ice cream.
  • Milk: I use whole milk because it gives the milkshake an even creamier consistency. Feel free to use whatever you have in the refrigerator, almond milk, 2%, oat milk, etc. Just keep in mind, lower fat milks give your milkshake an icier consistency.
  • Nutella: Don’t skimp on the nutella, it really gives the milkshake flavor. If you need an alternative, find yourself some hazelnut spread.
  • Hazelnuts: I like to coat the rim of my milkshake glass in Nutella and then roll it in finely chopped hazelnuts. It is an optional step but adds flair!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

What does nutella taste like?

Nutella is a delicious balance between hazelnut and chocolate flavor. It is on the sweeter side in comparison to peanut butter, but it is not overly sweet by any means.

How can I make my milkshake thicker?

The best way to make your milkshake thicker is to add more ice cream to it. If you have the opposite problem and your milkshake is too thick, add more milk to thin it out a little bit.

How do I make a milkshake without a blender or food processor?

Scoop your vanilla ice cream into a large jar and allow it to soften (you can also microwave it for 10-20 seconds). Add the milk and Nutella to your jar, shake until well combined, and top with whipped cream.

How can I make this Nutella Milkshake without ice cream?

My favorite alternative to ice cream is vanilla frozen yogurt, frozen vanilla greek yogurt, or banana nice cream. All of the options have the same great consistency needed for this milkshake.
