The Best Day Ever! National Chocolate Milkshake Day

I need one now!!!

I’m kind of a freak and I admit I’ve passed my strangeness to my daughters. I love a good chocolate milkshake but I’m very particular about how it is prepared, and my girls are too. It has to be super thick; I’m talking eat with a spoon thick. It can only be made with really good quality vanilla ice cream and tons of chocolate syrup. And it must be free of whipped cream. Once it is made, I have absolutely no self control. I can eat a ginormous glass of it. Oh, gotta go, I need a milkshake now!!!

      My chocolate milkshakes are very basic, but very good. I think the amount of love I put into them makes a big difference. There’s no recipe. I use really good vanilla or vanilla bean ice cream, chocolate syrup and milk. Then it is all ratios from there. I like mine really chocolatey and really thick. Just experiment. it it is too thick, add more milk and if it is too thin add more ice cream. I use my Vitamix but any blender will do. When I’ve wanted just a small milk shake, I even use an imersion belnder. It makes clean up really easy.

      Now I’m not a fan of strawberry milkshakes, so I don’t make them. But I did find this Emeril recipe that you might want to try. It uses fresh strawberries. I think the shakes are always best when using vanilla as a base and adding your flavor to that. Let me know how it goes.
