26 Easy Milkshake Recipes That Will Rock Your World (2024)

26 Easy Milkshake Recipes That Will Rock Your World (1)

When it comes to having your cake and eating it too, why not drink it as well? Milkshakes on a hot day (or, heck, we love them even in the dead of winter, like this sugar cookie milkshake) are some of our favorite desserts. They're creamy, dreamy, and only get better mixed with all our favorite crumbled cookies, pies, and brownies. We even love how cereal has inspired some of our favorite shake flavors, like our Fruity Pebbles milkshake and Cap'n Crunch milkshake.

Speaking of mix-ins, whether you simply top with sprinkles, whipped cream, or caramel sauce, you can never go wrong whichever way you go when dressing up your milkshake. Make a chocolate-covered strawberry-inspired strawberry milkshake by drizzling hot fudge into your glass before pouring in your shake. You can even take your leftover lemon icebox pie slices and blend it into an even more lemon-y lemon pie milkshake. And yes, even red velvet cake gets better when added to our red velvet milkshake.

If you want to really go wild, you can set up a toppings bar at your next party for your guests to create their own crazy milkshakes, complete with crumbled Oreos, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, M&Ms, and edible cookie dough. If you want your dessert time to also count as happy hour, go all out with wine for a boozy red wine milkshake.

You know what really goes with milkshakes? A burger and French fries. There's just nothing like dipping hot salty French fries right into a chocolate shake, as far as we're concerned. Don't knock it 'til you try it!
