Chocolate Milkshake (1)

I am a self confessed chocaholic. Anything that has tons of chocolate in it keeps me drooling. So I try to keep off the chocolate aisles at any super store. And the same can be said about ice creams as well. Imagine my condition when last week, my dad bought a 2 litre pack of vanilla ice cream and Hershey's chocolate syrup. The week had not gone by and the ice cream was almost over. It was last Sunday when I sneaked up to the fridge to find just two cups of ice cream left. I felt bad. That meant ice cream not enough for the four of us. And then I remembered the next best alternative to ice cream: chocolate milkshake! This solved the selfishness I would have felt if I had to have the ice cream without sharing :) I hope you enjoy.

One last thing: there are two ways to make chocolate milkshake. Here is the traditional way of doing it, however, I will post the other version as well, some time later because not always you have vanilla ice cream in the freezer but with a few tweaks, chocolate ice cream can work wonders too ;)




Ingredients

For four
  • Vanilla ice cream  – 2 cups
  • Chilled whole milk – 4 cups (see tip)
  • Chocolate syrup – 4-6 tablespoons
  • Cocoa powder  ½ teaspoon (optional)
  • Vanilla essence – 2-3 drops (optional)
Method
  1. Pour the ice cream and the milk in a blender.
  2. Add 4 tablespoons of chocolate syrup, cocoa powder & vanilla essence (if using) and blend well.
  3. Taste and add more chocolate syrup, if necessary.
  4. Blend until it develops a frothy texture.
  5. Serve  chilled.
Tip
  1. Ideally, the proportion to use ice cream and milk is in 1:2 ratio.
  2. You can experiment with the proportion, however, depending on how runny or thick you want your milkshake to be.
  3. Suggested garnishing: spray cream over the top, sprinkle chocolate bits or cocoa powder on top or drizzle the inner wall of the glass with chocolate syrup before serving ... the possibilities are endless!
Let me know what you think. Leave a comment if you want me to post the other option to make this delicious treat. See you soon :)

    1. I know right! ^_^ And the best bit is, it's less fattening than ice cream in the same quantity ;)
