The Great New York State Fair returned this year with Dairy Day celebrations to celebrate all things New York dairy! Since no hot summer day at the fair is complete without a milkshake, we asked our friends at local news stations to create their best milkshakes for the 2021 New York State Fair Undeniably Dairy Shake-Off, and they did not disappoint! Some of the teams infused local New York ingredients, while others chose more creative inspirations. In the end, there were four delicious milkshake recipes up to win the coveted title, so a good time was had by all.

Check out the delicious ingredients that each of teams used listed below and let it inspire your own milkshake creations at home!
