Happy National Chocolate Milkshake Day! Attention all chocoholics like me, this week has started so wonderfully and this festive vibes continues because tomorrow, 9/13, is International Chocolate Day, and coming Wednesday, 9/14, is National Food is Medicine Day(you know chocolate is not only good for our health but for our soul too!!) So, 2 food holidays which focus on chocolate in a row, and another day perfect for chocolate, so don’t miss this opportunity by giving stupid excuse of “oh my teeth” or “oh my sugar intake!” Just gobble up the sweety yummy this week!
Well well well, so let’s talk about chocolate milkshakes first because today is National Chocolate Milkshake Day, but let me be super honest with you…chocolate is the least flavor I’d make choice for my milkshake or ice cream. I have been a big fan of vanilla since I was a little kid, so even though I love chocolate itself, milkshake/ice cream and chocolate never interfere.
So why did I make today’s food? I don’t know, but I was craving for something chocolatey!

- ¼ cup oat milk (See the cooking tips below)
- Some whipped cream or creamy half melted vanilla ice cream
- Some berries for garnish
- Mix vanilla ice cream, cocoa powder, berries and oat milk in a blender and turn on the switch until the mixture is evenly, fully mixed.
- Pour them into a glass and garnish with creams and fruits. Enjoy!
- Of course you can use chocolate ice cream at first hand! I just never have chocolate ice cream in my freezer so I had to add cocoa powder to recreate the flavor!
- If you prefer rich milkshake, omit oat milk and wait a little bit for the ice cream to melt.
- If heatwave is hitting in your neighbor, same as above. Just wait for a few minutes and the texture of the milkshake will be perfect! We had heatwave hit us and first one was almost like chocolate milk instead of chocolate milkshake:(
Yay the pair of 5 oz double wall glass from Sweese joined my kitchen! They’re double-walled so they protect my hand from burning while enjoying hot drinks! For cold drinks like my berry chocolate milkshake, they don’t sweat so you don’t have to worry about wiping the surface of cups…so no worries about slipping and breaking it (remember I’m kitchen klutz? I can’t count how many cups ended up in an unfortunate accident…)
When I received them, I was so excited because they’re packed in a cute box and securely holding these cups with foam pads. As it gets fall drink season, I can imagine myself drinking apple cider, chai tea, or pumpkin latte to enjoy cool weather…If you have anyone who’s birthday is upcoming, consider these cute double-walled cups for gift idea!
Thank you Sweese for such a great gift! My kitchen is adding lovely products from Sweese!
Hmm, we enjoyed them for our afternoon break, and we both were like “hey, where is the second serving?” even though we actually barely get chocolate flavored milkshakes or ice creams…and that reminds us that spoiled kids/seniors complain how they don’t like the specific food but finish it all up in a snap…you guys all can call us such spoiled human beings because I totally agree! And, here is our excuse…it was so good with a hint of berry flavor, so we forgot we always preferred vanilla over chocolate. Yes, chocolate has such a powerful food to make people fall in love with them!
Have some chocolate milkshake today AND grab some chocolate-anything tomorrow and following after day too! You’re the one who’d be the next chocoholic!
