Super Chocolate Milkshake From Scratch

We all enjoy chocolate, and we all enjoy milkshakes. Here’s a chocolate milkshake recipe just for you. Enjoy!


Let’s get this party started. This is what you’ll need to pull of this trick:


  • 1 litre full cream milk
  • 3 scoops chocolate ice-cream
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 170 grams dark chocolate (60% cocoa solids)
  • 80 millilitres water
  • whipped cream 
  • shaved chocolate


  1. For chocolate syrup, stir sugar and 80ml water in a saucepan over medium heat until dissolved. Bring to the boil and cook without stirring until dark caramel.
  2. Remove from heat, add 400ml water and chocolate and stand for 5 minutes. Whisk until smooth; transfer to a container and refrigerate until required. Bring to room temperature before serving.
  3. Pour a little chocolate syrup into 4 tall chilled serving glasses and refrigerate while you make the shakes. Blend milk, two-thirds of the ice-cream and chocolate syrup to taste in a blender until frothy, then pour into chilled glasses. Add a scoop of ice-cream to each glass, top with whipped cream and shaved chocolate. There you go. Well done. We knew you could do it.
