Yummy Chocolate Shake Recipes

Updated on January 11, 2014

September 12 is National Chocolate Milkshake Day

Chocolate milkshakes are something that I have loved since I was little.

I do like vanilla or an occasional strawberry flavored shake but my preference is chocolate. I probably acquired this taste from my Mother when she used to give us chocolate from Belgium.

September 12 is National Chocolate Milkshake Day and I always thought it was a little peculiar. It was probably invented by a milkshake salesmen who had great Summer sales and then they slacked off in September. This way, he could create a day where he would sell more chocolate milkshakes. Eureka!

Regardless of the day, I love them them and this site has many variations including Vegan as well as raw food versions. There are even some variations that have nuts in them or non-dairy creamer.

Whatever the version, if you love a good old chocolate milkshake, this is the place to be. I have also inter-mingled some Bovine Wisdom and other fun activities.

Thank you for the visit and please pass on to your friends that they need to see these recipes, so they can learn how to make them and treat you to a chocolate milkshake next time you visit!

Chocolate Ice Cream comes from Brown Cows, Right? - Well, not exactly. I don't think it comes from cows with horns either.

The History of the Milkshake

The milkshake or "shake" as it is commonly referred, was invented in 1800's in the United States and the term was first coined in 1885.

I know that most won't dispute that because I remember living in Europe in the 1980's and they are still not fond of ice over there so a cold drink is most commonly out of the question.

The milkshake, in it's earliest form, was alcoholic and it was usually whiskey and crushed ice, mixed with chocolate syrup. In the later 1800's, the flavors of strawberry and vanilla became popular and the first sweet treat without alcohol was born.

Prior to blenders, milkshakes with crushed ice were made and when the blender was invented, the rest is history.

No matter how they came about, most people love them and Summers will not go by without getting at least one of these treats.

These days, you can make them with sugar-free ice cream so even diabetics can enjoy an occasional milkshake..

Thanks for stopping by and learning about the milkshake!

If you like raw foods or even because of joint-health reasons, you choose to eat Brazil nuts, this is a variation of a chocolate milkshake that is not only healthy, but very tasty!

I use a Vitamix blender but you can use other blenders, as long as they can process ice.

This is the way the milkshake actually started.

It was an alcoholic treat that is still popular today. These are great for parties and especially during the hot Summer months and most assuredly, on National Chocolate Milkshake Day.

Be careful to not get pulled over with an open milkshake while driving your car.

      Too funny and too good! I love chocolate milkshakes, but can't help wonder what went on in America way back when to justify the need for whisky shakes and coco cola. I guess they're still not that good for most of us, but drug-free at least!
