This chocolate milkshake is everything you want in a milkshake, and none of the stuff you don’t!
One of the things I’ve always loved is a good milkshake. Smooth, creamy and with the addition of chocolate, oh so delightful. In fact, a good milkshake can turn any day into near perfection. Don’t you think?
A reader named Annie sent this recipe to me. I’m so happy she did! I mean, who doesn’t like a shake?
Thank you, thank you Annie for sharing this with me and allowing me to share it with everyone here!! This is way better than any shake you could buy, and so much healthier!
HOW TO MAKE A CHOCOLATE MILKSHAKE WITHOUT ICE CREAM
You do not need ice cream to make a chocolate milkshake! This can either be good news, or bad, depending on who you ask. But the process is actually quite simple as you will see in the recipe below. It’s actually just like making a smoothie! So get out your blender and you’ll be enjoying this deliciousness in literally minutes! Can you even stand it??!
WHEN IS NATIONAL CHOCOLATE MILKSHAKE DAY?
Yep, you read that right! There is actually a national chocolate milkshake day!! Who knew??!!?
This blessed day falls on September 12th each year. I’m not entirely sure of the significance of that date or even if there really is any significance beyond food manufacturers wanting to encourage your consumption of this beverage. But I figure, if they are going to make a national day out of it, I might as well show “big brother” a little spite and make it better and cheaper at home!
