Smoothie/Milkshake Recipes

Chocolate Brownie Milkshake

Milkshakes are a classic frozen treat the whole family can make together. At your next family gathering, try using milkshakes in place of a sundae bar. Lay out toppings galore and let everyone build their own cold, yummy creation. Our Jumbo HeartStraws are perfect for these desserts because their wide diameter means enjoying even the thickest shakes is a breeze. This recipe is for 2 shakes so remember to add accordingly depending on the number of guests. For garnishes, try chocolate shavings, sprinkles, chopped, candied nuts, and toffee chips.
