Milkshakes are the best drink to have when the temperature is coming down and you are back in your fluffy hoodies and cosy jumpers. They are also a tasty and fun way to get some more calcium in your diet. Here are ten fall milkshakes you should try – if you don’t mind being a little chilly!
1. Salted Caramel
Salted caramel is a super popular flavour right now for pretty much everything – and that includes milkshakes! For this you will need some caramel which you can either buy or, if you are feeling adventurous, make yourself from scratch. From there you will need vanilla ice cream, sea salt and whipped cream. Mix them in a glass along with your milk and drizzle the caramel on top.
2. Rocky Road
Rocky road is one of the tastiest snacks there is – and it only gets better when you combine it with a milkshake. For this, get some chocolate ice cream, almonds, crushed digestive biscuits, milk and a lot of marshmallows. Pour the mixture into a glass, and top it off with a piece of chocolate. If you have time, toast the marshmallows first as this will give you that classic smore taste.
3. Blueberry Cheesecake
If you love the taste of cheesecake but find it a bit heavy as a dessert, then this blueberry cheesecake milkshake might be perfect for you! To create that cheesecake flavour, you will need vanilla ice cream, cream cheese, and lots of blueberries. When it comes to the ice cream, you are looking for the creamiest you can find. Top it off with a dollop of whipped cream and a handful blueberries.
4. Red Wine
Feeling like something more boozy? Try this red wine milkshake. For this, you will need vanilla ice cream, red wine, and vodka. The brand is entirely up to you. All you need to do for this is blend the ingredients in a blender before pouring the mixture into a glass. Pop some whipped cream and some berries on top for the cutest milkshake ever!
5. Pumpkin Spice
Pumpkin spiced lattés are definitely one of the best parts of the fall season, and this pumpkin spice milkshake is just as delicious. To achieve the latté flavour, try to find some coffee ice cream. Mix that together with pumpkin spice, pumpkin purée, and vanilla extract. Once it is in the glass, drizzle caramel over the top and garnish with a cinnamon stick for the ultimate spicy taste!
6. Sweetie Heaven
Sometimes you just want to feel like a kid again, and this sugar-filled milkshake will certainly help you do that. Filled with all your childhood favourites and bursting with colour, this drink will brighten up a dull autumn day instantly. Grab whatever sweets you want, mix them up with strawberry and vanilla ice cream, and pour sprinkles on top. For added fun, find a funky straw to drink it through!
7. Piña Colada
If you are looking for the taste of your favourite drink but without the effects of the alcohol, then this is the milkshake for you. You’ll need vanilla ice cream, pineapple juice, pineapple chunks, coconut milk, and rum. Blend the ingredients and pour them into a glass. For a true piña colada experience, get a proper cocktail glass, dip the rim in syrup, then roll it in some toasted coconut. Don’t forget the cocktail umbrella!
8. Mint Choc Chip
It is the best ice cream flavour there is, but sometimes it feels a bit too cold for ice cream in autumn. Enter the mint choc chip milkshake. This one is easy to make since the ice cream already exists. Just buy some mint choc chip, mix in the milk, and blend them together. For extra fun, buy a bar of mint chocolate and break pieces into the drink.
9. Apple Pie
This milkshake is slightly more complicated than some of the others on this list, but it is worth it. First, you should chop up some Granny Smith apples and heat them in a saucepan with brown sugar, cinnamon, water and a dash of salt. Once the apples are soft and have cooled, whip them into a purée. From there, place some vanilla ice cream in a glass, pour in the milk, and drizzle the apple mix through the drink. Place some cooked apple chunks on top and sprinkle with cinnamon.
10. Peanut Butter
If you love a mix of sweet and savoury, this peanut butter milkshake will be perfect for you. For this, you will need vanilla ice cream, creamy (not crunchy) peanut butter, milk, and peanuts. Blend the ingredients together, pour into a glass, and top with whipped cream and chopped peanuts. Drizzle some caramel over for a dash of extra sweetness.
