Tips and tricks for a better shake

Improving this milkshake with some toppings

Use whole milk for a richer flavor.

  • Add a scoop of chocolate ice cream to the blender for an extra chocolaty milkshake.
  • Use a chocolate candy bar instead of chocolate syrup for even more chocolate flavor.
  • If you want a boozy milkshake, add a shot of vodka or rum to the blender.
  • Top your milkshakes with fresh whipped cream and a cherry for an extra special treat.
  • For an adult-only version, try using Bailey’s Irish Cream or another coffee liqueur in place of the coffee liqueur.
  • Make your milkshake even more indulgent by dipping the rim of your glass in melted chocolate before adding the shake.
  • Sprinkle some ground coffee or cocoa powder on your finished milkshake for a garnish.
  • Use a different flavor of ice cream in place of the vanilla for a unique twist. Try chocolate, strawberry, or even mint chocolate chip!
  • Get creative with your toppings! In addition to whipped cream and cherries, try adding sprinkles, crushed cookies, or even a drizzle of caramel or chocolate sauce.
  • Make mini milkshakes by pouring the shake into small glasses or mason jars. They make cute gifts or party favors!
  • This recipe can easily be doubled (or tripled!) if you’re serving a crowd.
  • Leftovers can be stored in the freezer for up to 2 weeks. Then, pour the shake into an airtight container and thaw in the fridge when you’re ready to enjoy it again.
  • Shake things up using different syrups or liqueurs instead of chocolate and coffee. Try caramel, hazelnut, or mint for a unique flavor.

Add a scoop of protein powder to the blender if you’re looking for a post-workout treat. This will help replenish your muscles and give you an extra energy boost.
