This is my dads little recipe for a chocolate milkshake! The same one that I've been eating since I was a little girl. It's the best!!! It's also very easy, versatile and there is no need for a blender.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, combine cocoa powder and ice cream.
  2. Add some of the milk, mashing with a potato masher or a hand held electric beater (not turned on) as you go.
  3. You can choose to leave it thicker and more lumpy by adding less milk or mashing less (my favorite), or have a thinner shake by adding more milk and mashing more thoroughly.
  4. Add more cocoa powder if needed.
  5. SERVE!
  6. I also like topping with mini chocolate chips.

Quick, easy and scrumptious. Loved that I could throw it all in the blender and just mix it up too (using lazyme's suggestion). A nice creamy milkshake! Thanks for sharing. Tagged and made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Tag.
