You don’t need to go out to get a great chocolate milkshake. With a blender and a few ingredients, you can make them easily at home. Top the shakes with whipped cream and a cherry and you can be sure to have a treat that will please both kids and adults alike.

Things You'll Need

Put 4 cups vanilla ice cream, 2 cups milk, 1 cup small ice cubes and 4 teaspoons chocolate syrup in the blender.

Close the blender lid and blend for about a minute. The homemade chocolate milkshake should be thick and dense. If the desired thickness is not met, add more ice cream.

Empty the homemade chocolate milkshake into glasses. Simple clear glasses always look nice if you want to make your chocolate milkshake look tasty.

Top the milkshake with whipped cream. Add a little cinnamon or use candy sprinkles on top for an even tastier appearance.

Complete your homemade chocolate milkshake by adding a cherry on the top. You could also use a strawberry instead.

Tips

  • You can use extract instead of chocolate syrup for your milkshake.

  • Play with the amount of ice cream you use in your milkshake and ice you use until you get the flavor and density that you like best.
