My family loves a good milkshake! If I had to pick a favorite, I’d have to go with this creamsicle milkshake but my youngest would disagree. Her favorite is this OREO milkshake recipe. Ask my hubby and oldest daughter and they’ll tell you that my good old-fashioned vanilla milkshake just can’t be beat!
We’re always up for a new milkshake recipe though. Since my youngest and I are the chocoholics in the family, we decided it was the perfect day for a classic chocolate milkshake.
How To Make A Chocolate Milkshake
The beauty of this chocolate milkshake recipe, or most milkshakes really, is that they’re SO easy to make. This one only takes three ingredients, plus a little whipped cream for garnish.
Start by adding four scoops of chocolate ice cream (about two cups) to your blender.
Pour in half a cup of milk.
Add two tablespoons of chocolate syrup.
Blend until smooth and creamy.
Drizzle syrup downs the sides of your milkshake glass.
Top with whipped cream and drizzle with chocolate syrup. Add a straw and you’re good to go!
So easy right? The best part is how amazing it tastes!!! Ready to make your own?
HOW TO MAKE A THICK MILKSHAKE
The the trick to making your milkshake extra thick is to either add less milk or more ice cream. Adding more ice cream gives you a larger serving size too. If you’re splitting your chocolate milkshake between two people, I’d take this option.
HOW TO MAKE A MILKSHAKE WITHOUT A BLENDER
You don’t need to have a blender in order to make a delicious shake. I found this YouTube video with a tutorial on how to make a milkshake without a blender. All you need to get started is a large insulated cup. I’m totally using this technique as a backup for if I’m ever without a blender.
- 4 scoops chocolate ice cream
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
- Whipped cream and chocolate syrup or sprinkles for garnish
- Combine ice cream, milk and chocolate syrup in a blender.
- Blend on high speed or pulse until mixture is smooth and creamy.
- Pour into a glass, add whipped cream and drizzle chocolate over the top.
- Add sprinkles (optional) and serve.
For a thicker shake, just add more ice cream until it reaches the consistency you like.
This recipe makes one large chocolate shake or two smaller ones.
