Hey chocolate lovers!! What can be the most comforting chocolate beverage for summers? Ummmm…. the first thing what comes into my mind is of course CHOCOLATE MILKSHAKE. Even a kid would have an answer to this.. hehe.. 😀 So today I am going to share the recipe of chocolate milkshake. Chocolate Milkshake was first introduced during early 1900s and since then it has become everyone’s favorite, be it kids or grown ups. It is a quick recipe and you do not need to do preparations ahead of time. It is generally referred to as a perfect drink because you can have it in anyway, either as a cooling drink for summers, or as daytime / midnight snack. You can also have it for breakfast, or serve it to guests, for me I can have it at anytime of the day. I generally skip the addition of ice-cream into the milkshakes because it is not always available with me at home but I never stop anyone from doing so. Do add a scoop of ice-cream if you have it. Instead of ice-cream, I add few tbsps of heavy cream in the recipe for that extra richness and create a swirl of whipped cream on top. Also, I add brown sugar in this recipe because it is a known fact that brown sugar goes well with chocolate. If you do not have it, use normal sugar.CHOCOLATE MILKSHAKE RECIPE

For all my vegetarian friends, you can replace milk with almond milk, soy milk or coconut milk. For all those who want to cut out on calories, simply use skimmed or double toned milk for a healthier version. Also avoid the cream, if you want a thick shake without the cream, then freeze skimmed milk in an ice tray and then use the milk cubes to prepare the shake (you will definitely need a powerful blender for that), it really comes out rich and frothy. Try using dark chocolate as it is more healthier compared to white and milk chocolate, rest is fine :). So now hurry up, Go and Try, then, share your thoughts!! 😀 😀
