National Chocolate Milkshake Day: September 12

National Chocolate Milkshake Day: September 12.

Easiest way to celebrate is to mix a little Milk with Chocolate Ice-cream and Chocolate syrup and mix it well in your blender.

Or you can do Milk with Vanilla ice-cream and Chocolate syrup and blend.

Measurements are up to you, but I have a few quasi-measurements below for special chocolate milkshakes.

If you're absolutely Dying for Chocolate, use 1 cup chocolate ice-cream, 1/4 cup chocolate syrup and 1/2 cup chocolate milk!

A Chocolate Malted is a variation on your traditional chocolate milkshake. Add a tbsp of malted milk powder to milk, syrup and chocolate ice-cream and blend.

Like bananas? Chocolate Banana Milk Shake:
1 cup milk. 1 scoop banana ice-cream. 1 scoop chocolate ice-cream, 1/2 ripened banana and some chocolate syrup, and blend.

Jumping ahead to September 13: International Chocolate Day and National Peanut Day, celebrate all three holidays with a Chocolate Peanut Butter Milkshake.

Blend 1 cup creamy peanut butter, 1/2 cup chocolate syrup, 1/4 cup milk, 12 cubes ice. Blend until smooth. (Ice cubes instead of ice-cream).

Have a great day!

Me, too. I'll be at the Ghirardelli Chocolate Festival tomorrow, and they're bound to be a few.
