Classic Chocolate Milkshake

Written by Roar Elias

Here is a classic chocolate milkshake recipe that is guaranteed to leave you feeling satisfied.

What would an old 60's American diner, equipped with jukebox and the works be without the classic milkshake? This of course, was the one served in a tall fluted soda fountain glass and often topped with a scoop of whipped cream accompanied with a cherry.

The consistency of the chocolate milkshake will obviously depend on your preference. Super thick shakes have their time and place and this is not something that you want to rush. You really want to take your time and enjoy the luxurious flavours of the chocolate.

You can still make a fine milkshake without a milkshake machine. Just get yourself a blender and with a couple of top quality ingredients you will be on your way to something to surprise everyone. Kids are crazy about milkshakes and adults are no different so this is one easy recipe that should stick in your head.

Ingredients

  • 3 scoops chocolate ice cream
  • 2 Tbsp chocolate syrup
  • ½ cup milk

Directions

  1. Place everything in the blender and turn onto high.
  2. Make sure everything is combined until you start to fill the glasses.
  3. That's all there is to it - Enjoy!

If you are feeling creative, there is always time to experiment. How about a drop of peppermint extract or a spoonful of peanut butter?

Here is a fantastic chocolate milkshake with a difference. It is a great way to introduce mango into the family and it also incorporates fruit with sweet drinks. In India they serve a fantastic small drink as a starter, made purely out of mango. This we call a Lassi. We are going to be adapting this somewhat and turning it into a chocolate milkshake with the use of white chocolate, which goes really well with this fruit.

White chocolate and mango milkshake

Ingredients

  • 150g (5 oz.) white chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 ripe mangoes, chilled
  • 2 scoops vanilla ice-cream
  • Chocolate curls to decorate

Directions

  1. Put 100g (3.5 oz.) of the chocolate in small saucepan with 100ml of the milk and heat gently, stirring frequently, until the chocolate has melted. Pour into a bowl and leave to cool.
  2. Melt the remaining chocolate. Use a teaspoon to swirl the chocolate around the insides of 2 300ml (1/2 pint) clear glasses, working from the base to the top of the glasses in a spiral pattern. (Don't worry about keeping the spiral neat - it'll look effective no matter how uneven it is.). Chill this while making the milkshake.
  3. Halve and stone the mangoes. Cut away the skins and chop the flesh into a food processor. Blend to a smooth puree, scraping any pieces down from the sides of the bowl. Add the chocolate milk, remaining milk and ice-cream and blend until smooth.
  4. Pour the milkshake into glasses and serve sprinkles with chocolate curls.

To make chocolate curls, you simply use a potato peeler to peel strips from a bar of chocolate. They don't have to be perfect, we are just looking for that extra something and not too many people are too fond of a mint leaf out of the garden!

This serves two so you can double it up if you want more.
