The the trick to making your creamy milkshake extra thick is to either add less milk or more ice cream. Adding more ice cream gives you a larger serving size too. If you’re splitting your chocolate milkshake between two people, I’d take this option.


You don’t need to have a blender in order to make a delicious shake. I found this YouTube video with a tutorial onhow to make a milkshake without a blender. All you need to get started is a largeinsulated cup. I’m totally using this technique as a backup for if I’m ever without a blender.

This delicious milkshake is the perfect treat when you need to satisfy your sweet tooth! I’m already craving another one!
