Chocolate Milkshake, an alternative to a smoothie!

Filed under: Uncategorized — leilarader @ 4:39 pm

chocolate milkshake...I am sitting here thinking of something that might be a little different. I received a comment about milkshakes. I know that this blog is about smoothies, but a milkshake can’t do much harm once in a while. Yes, I know, milkshakes may not be the healthiest but they definitely are tasty.  Sometimes, all you need is something really sweet, unhealthy and tasty to make your day extra special. I am not recommending a daily milkshake, but once in a while, it can be wonderful. So, I want your feed back about what your preference is… Do you like chocolate or vanilla? Do you like smoothies are milkshakes or both? I really want to make this blog beneficial and fun. So please feel free to make comments or suggestions because I will take them into serious consideration. So basically, I chose today’s topic on a chocolate. Chocolate smoothies are so delicious, and they bring back fond memories of those warm summer nights, enjoying a chocolate milkshake with my best friends or my grandma. They always are so great! I posted below a very basic recipe that I found. Nothing special but it is still a chocolate smoothie, so how could you go wrong? Make sure you have these ingredients: Milk, Vanilla extract, Chocolate Syrup, Vanilla Ice cream and sugar! If you do have all of these ingredients, here is the procedure. Take ½ cup of vanilla ice cream and place it into a blender, then pour 3 tablespoons of chocolate syrup, 1 tablespoon of sugar, ½ tablespoons of vanilla extract and ¾ cups of milk! Blend until smooth consistency. Drink down and enjoy!


3/4 cup milk

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

3 tbs chocolate syrup

1/2 cup ice cream (vanilla)

1 tsp sugar





  1. I like how you wrote about a mi l shake instead of a smoothie this time. You asked for feedback so I will tell you I love chocolate milkshakes, especially the ones from cold stones and I love to add toffee candy. I like smoothies on hot days. I drink smoothies more often then milkshakes. I think you should go try one because it super delicious. This milkshake looks really good and I will consider trying to make it at my house. I was wondering where do you get these recipes? Would you ever consider making your own recipe if these are not yours?

  2. thank you for your feedback! The cold stone milkshake sounds so yummy. I will be sure to try it out the next time I go.
    I find my recipes from different websites, and I post the link so you can try it out too! Today I posted a very simple smoothie recipe that I just thought of, I am sure it has been made before because it is so basic. I just wanted to post a recipe that I use all the time.
    I will continue to post different recipes and look out for unique ones. I also want to find more milkshake recipes!
