Chocolate milkshake with whipped cream

My family loves a good milkshake! It’s a great way to cool off in summer and it’s just one of those tasty recipes that everyone loves.

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 these good old-fashioned strawberry milkshakes just can’t be beat!

We’re always up for a new delicious recipes 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 simple ingredients, plus a little whipped cream for garnish.

Start by adding four scoops of chocolate ice cream (about two cups) to your blender. You can substitute vanilla ice cream if you have chocolate syrup on hand too.

Top with whipped cream and give it a drizzle of chocolate sauce for a little extra chocolate flavor. Add a straw and you’ve got the best chocolate milkshake and one that’ll satisfy all your chocolate cravings!

So easy right? The best part is how amazing it tastes!!! Ready to make your own?


The the trick to making your creamy 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.


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.

This delicious milkshake is the perfect treat when you need to satisfy your sweet tooth! I’m already craving another one!
