It’s a very simple recipe and you can also add several toppings such as strawberries, almond, toasted marshmallows or even chocolate bars to make it taste even more chocolaty. I sometimes prefer to add ice-cream though to make it taste even sweet, but up to an extent. You can even add in your ingredients as this recipe is easy to make. Let’s get started!

Tell me more about this recipe for chocolate milkshake.

As explained above, the recipe is easy to make. All it requires is dedication and that’s it, you can also top in different things. It is also useful after your workout as it will help you recover much faster than any normal drink. It depends on the calories and the number of healthy stuff that is present in your drink could be nuts, fruits or anything that makes you feel healthy. After all, I prefer taking this drink for fun as it’s a very delicious dessert.

Ingredients

  • 3x scoop vanilla ice-cream (1/2 cup each)

  • 3/4 cup milk

  • 1/4 cup chocolate syrup (you can also use Hershey’s)

  • Optional: Whipped cream, toppings, shaved chocolate, chocolate chips (1/4)

Directions

  • In a blender, place the vanilla ice-cream, chocolate syrup, milk and optional ingredients such as chocolate chips or toppings like small slices of fruits or nuts. Do not waste any time as you do not want the ice-cream to melt.
  • Spin your blender on high speed for about 2 seconds and add in a bit of chocolate syrup and blend on low speed for about 3 – 5 seconds until it is smooth and thick.
  • Pour it into a glass and serve immediately.

Is refrigerating possible with this recipe?

That depends on the amount of stuff that you have added in your chocolate milkshake. You may cover the glass with a lid and keep it for 1 day, after that the milk will go bad and the stuff that you have added inside will taste sour. The only reason you should serve immediately is that the milkshake is a combination of lots of other stuff so it should be used immediately.

What are some other variations I can use with this recipe?

Lots of things can be done with the drink that you have made. It’s easy and simple, so you can use almond milk or coconut milk instead of using whole milk. Here are some variations:

  • Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake: If it is too thick, add a quarter cup of creamy peanut butter and a little more milk.
  • Nutella Milkshake: Add Nutella chocolate hazelnut spread in a quarter-cup and, if necessary, a little more milk.
  • Chocolate Oreo Milkshake: Blend and combine the milkshake in a cup of Oreo cookies. If it is too thick, add a little more milk.
  • Chocolate Coffee Shake: Add in 1 tablespoon instant decaf coffee, cocoa powder, and whipped cream. Blend them until the shake looks smooth and good to go, add in a bit of milk if required.

How can I control calories on this recipe?

Just prevent yourself from adding in extra stuff like whipped cream or extra heavy toppings that may increase the calories even more. You may also remove the vanilla ice-cream from the recipe’s list and also using dairy-free milk may reduce the calories. All you need to do is prevent extra heavy things and you are good to go!
