Easy Neapolitan Milkshake

Sharing is caring!

It takes just a few minutes (and only 1 flavor of ice cream) to make this delicious and easy Neapolitan milkshake. Vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate make the perfect treat on a hot day!

In second grade, my teacher used to hold ice cream parties each Friday if the class accomplished certain goals that week. We looked forward to it all week, and it was an extra exciting week if we got Neapolitan ice cream because you could ask for three flavors in one scoop! Of course, my friends and I always waited until it melted a bit and then mixed it up to make a thick “ice cream soup”, so I’m not sure why it was so exciting, but it was, and the idea of three flavors in one sip was the inspiration behind this easy Neapolitan milkshake!

Because I wanted to keep this recipe easy, I really wanted to keep ingredients minimal. I got it down to four ingredients, and minimal prep time. As in, I made this milkshake once to test, the three of us drank it, and then I made another one later, during nap time, for pictures and sharing with the Godfather. Both were creamy chocolate, vanilla, strawberry throwback comfort food. The grownup version of my ice cream soup.

The most time consuming part of this smoothie is mixing the layers individually. I used my big blender since our small one died a little while ago, but a small smoothie blender would be easier to use if you’re only making 1 or two milkshakes. If you are scaling the recipe to make enough Neapolitan milkshakes for a crowd, use a larger blender, and I would recommend setting the cups on a rimmed tray for easy transport in and out of the freezer. I think it would be darling to make mini versions of this recipe for a party, they’d look so perfect on a dessert table!

Good enough to have 2 in the span of an hour and a half. Proceed with caution. ;)

Ice cream parties at school, holy crap that sounds awesome... Despite not really having a sweet tooth I am more than capable of consuming my own body weight in Ice Cream any day of the week ;) Love me a good milkshake too so this is screaming to me very loudly.

I don't think they have those in schools anymore. Thank goodness I'm old and cranky and remember when school could be more fun haha.

I hope the milkshake is at least shouting politely.

Enjoy! It's easy to scale for sharing. For easy scaling, 1/4 cup = 4 tablespoons :)
