Milkshakes, a beverage review

A beverage review by: Lee Sonogan

(Late 18th century) Sweet and cold drink


A milkshake is a sweet and cold beverage which is usually made from milk, ice cream, or iced milk, and flavorings or sweeteners. some Milk shakes are made with butterscotch, caramel sauce, chocolate syrup, or fruit syrup. Milkshakes using ice cream are sometimes called a thick milkshake or thickshake.

A milkshake can also be made by adding powder into fresh milk and stirring the powder into the milk. Milkshakes made in this way can come in a variety of flavors, including chocolate, caramel, strawberry, and banana. When the term ‘milkshake’ was first used in print in 1885, milkshakes were an alcoholic whiskey drink.

A 2016 article stated that chefs are trying out creative ideas with milkshakes to keep customers interested in the frothy drinks. The article noted that coffee-flavored shakes are popular because the coffee flavour complements both sweet and savory dishes. Unusual flavours from 2016 included bacon, peanut butter and jelly, pumpkin, chocolate-coated strawberry and red velvet.

‘Milkshake’ is the title of a 2003 R&B–electro song written and produced by The Neptunes for the American singer Kelis. It reached the top ten in the United Kingdom, Australia, and the Netherlands.

You can find great Milkshakes in a lot of different places. Some are handmade or made in a machine for you to buy. Depending if you have a preference, most methods of making a milkshake is mostly a great quality beverage. If I get a milkshake, or a thickshake, I always get Strawberry. I recommend this drink to everyone. I am going to rate this the same as my coffee review.
