You cool off during sweltering hot days and it is comforting when you really need it: the milkshake. It is such a typical case of youth sentiment that you will drive for even in your old age. They are therefore available in all variations imaginable. We can now dream of banana, strawberry, vanilla and chocolate – and we like to do that.
But how about the following options?
10 x cool milkshake ideas
1. Bacon cake
Looking for a standing ovation? Then serve this milkshake with bacon to your guests anyway . One that makes your mouth water just reading the name. We thank Culy colleague Winnie for this brilliant invention.
2. Pulp Fiction
OK, not the originality price in terms of ingredients (banana, vanilla, ice cream and yogurt), but in terms of theme and stylish looks: the Pulp Fiction milkshake . We’re happy to echo John Travolta’s response when he takes the first sip: “Goddamn! That’s a pretty fucking good milkshake!”.
3. The Boozy Milkshake
Nice all those sweet milkshakes from your childhood, but we’re going to take it up a notch now that we’re in our twenties. The milkshake for adults has to be this Hennessy Colada .
With homemade syrup of rosemary, pineapple and coconut milk and a nice amount of Henessey, this one goes straight on the favorites list.
4. The healthy milkshake
The milkshake is not exactly known for its richness in vitamins. That is of course secretly why it is so addictively delicious. But if you don’t feel called to try this bulk bliss, then opt for a healthier variant, such as this one with chocolate . Not too often.
5. With spice nuts
Looking for one that isn’t too experimental but just a little bit different? Then you are in the right place this fall. Or with a bit of luck at the end of summer, given the ever earlier arrival of the kruidnoten. Mix a handful of truffle kruidnoten, regular kruidnoten or pepernoten with this milkshake and your evening can’t go wrong.
6. Mango lassi
For the sake of convenience, we share it with the milkshakes, this refreshing mango lassi . The most popular smoothie from India, Bangladesh and Pakistan contains milk, yogurt and mango, so hey, so as far as we’re concerned, just a place in this list.
Popcorn and milkshakes make us happy, so why not a combination? Start on time with this version of Food52 , because it needs a night in the fridge. But you get a deep, pure and creamy popcorn taste in return.
Forget the strawberry, have you ever tried a cherry milkshake ? We would like to oblige you to try it tonight, because this one is guaranteed to impress. 100% sure that really everyone will be happy with this.
Bacon in your milkshake? Why not. It should be clear that bacon gives a sweet dish an umami boost . After all, we have been eating our pancake with bacon and syrup for years.
We like to drive around for the bacon milkshake from Five Guys , but if that is a bit too much trouble, this recipe is a good alternative.
10. Peanut Butter
Crunchy peanut butter with maple syrup: another golden combination. Especially in combination with vanilla ice cream and through a straw. So in a milkshake. Make it extra-extra with a shot of bourbon . So one for adults.
