"I would absolutely love a milkshake right now," is a thought that's crossed our mind at several times in our life--okay, and maybe even several points while writing this post. The only real thing standing in the way of us having a milkshake every single morning is our kitchen's lack of the necessary appliances. In order to make a shake, you need a blender. Well, funny story...

We at Plated love finding workarounds, offering tips, and revealing tricks in the kitchen--and this milkshake solution does all of those things. Below, we'll show you how to make this sweet concoction with just a few ingredients and the slightest bit of upper-body strength. Follow these simple steps and you'll be making shakes in no time. No blender? No problem.

(Pro tip: One thing you will need is a mason jar or other lidded container that stays on nice and tight, because this recipe calls for shaking things up.)

Ingredients
½ cup milk
1 tablespoon Nutella
2 cups vanilla ice cream

1. Pour the milk into the mason jar, add the Nutella and then tightly fasten the lid.
