Questions about chocolate milkshakes

With our easy chocolate milkshake recipe, this ice-cold drink may just become a staple tasty treat for you and yours. Have a look at our answers to the most frequently asked questions about chocolate milkshakes below to learn more about the delicious drink.

What is a chocolate milkshake?
Chocolate milkshakes are a true American classic. Milkshakes are made by blending ice cream, milk, and different flavourings like caramel and chocolate sauce or fruit syrups. Milkshakes are often topped with whipped cream and a selection of delicious toppings like drizzled sauce, fresh fruit, wafers, or biscuits. A chocolate milkshake is one of the most popular varieties and may be prepared using chocolate ice cream, dark cocoa powder, chocolate sauce, chocolate milk, or a combination of these ingredients.
How to make a chocolate milkshake?
Making delicious chocolate milkshakes at home is incredibly quick and easy. Start by preparing your whipped cream. Then blend ice cream and chocolate milk for a few seconds to achieve the perfectly thick milkshake mouthfeel. Pour the milkshake into freezer-cold glasses and top them off with whipped cream and crispy toppings. Serve immediately to enjoy your sweet treats while they are still cold.
How do you get a thick chocolate milkshake?
The best way to make thick and frothy chocolate milkshakes is to use more ice cream than milk, which is why our recipe calls for a bit more than double the amount of chocolate ice cream than chocolate milk. Using ice-cold ingredients and making sure not to over-blend them are also good ways to ensure a rich, thick milkshake with a great mouthfeel.
Can you make a chocolate milkshake in advance?
Milkshakes are best served ice-cold so making them ahead of time and letting them sit on your countertop is not a great option. However, milkshakes themselves are freezable. As such, you may prepare them in advance, cover the glasses with cling film, and store them in your freezer for up to 1 month. Take out your frozen chocolate milkshake and let it thaw for 5 minutes or so at room temperature before topping it with fresh whipped cream and your toppings of choice.

It has chocolate ice cream and chocolate milk and is topped with chocolate sauce as well as crispy chocolate treats like biscuits and wafer stick rolls.

Add your own touch

Chocolate milkshakes, and milkshakes of any kind, are super easy to experiment with, and a milkshake with chocolate flavour tastes delicious with peanut butter or mint-flavoured toppings or a homemade caramel sauce. With our easy recipe, you can even make it into a salted caramel sauce if you enjoy the combination of sweet and salty, which is perfect for the chocolate flavour. For pops of colour and freshness, consider topping your milkshake with fresh berries like raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries.

For an adult take on our recipe for chocolate milkshake, we suggest introducing some slightly bitter coffee flavours into it by adding a bit of coffee liqueur like Kahlua and topping it with mocha beans or dark chocolate shards. The taste of coffee or dark chocolate will bring a delicious, adult depth to this sweet treat.
