Milkshakes may be a classic drink, but that doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy a new twist or two.
Chocolate and cherry are a classic combination that really stand out in the first recipe. But what really sets it apart is the buttermilk, which adds a delicate tang that really enhances the cherry flavor. Add the cookies at the end and just stir it together if you like bigger chunks, or puree until smooth if you want to drink it through a straw.
The raspberry milkshake (suntimes.com/lifestyles/food) is what would happen if fresh raspberries, Key lime pie and cheesecake got together. It is one seriously delicious gathering.
