There is something incredibly comforting about a milkshake. Sometimes you just need a pick-me-up, sometimes you just want a filling, delicious drink … or sometimes you’re 4 years old and your entire world revolves around bubbly, chocolate milk and colourful straws! Either way, here are some great places to get your frothy fix:
5. Kettle & Tin, 71 Mawson Place, Mawson ACT 2605.
This hidden gem brings us yet another Top 5 entry (they featured in our Top 5 Eggs Benedict blog). This time, their delicious chocolate malt milkshake made the cut. They have a variety of flavours, including banana, which is also featured in this vlog.
4. Space Kitchen, 3G/12 Furzer St, Phillip ACT 2606.
With so many options for shakes, it was hard to narrow it down. We ended up ordering two- the Oreo Peppermint and the Nutella Shake. Everyone knows that mint and chocolate are a brilliant combo, but putting them in milk with chunky cookie is genio (genius). I loved it! I got my resident Nutella Experts to drink the Nutella shake and they gave me a bigger-than-usual thumbs up. In fact, I couldn’t get any words out of the kids, because they were too busy drinking- clearly a good sign!
3. Ivy and The Fox, 73 Lennox Crossing, Acton ACT 2601.
The whole family loves coming here with its big outdoor space. The kids love coming here for the milkshakes even more. I loved seeing all the rich chocolate covering the inside of the mason jars. With 3 scoops of ice cream, this milkshake was creamy, frothy and amazing. As I write this blog, I am still hanging for another Ivy and the Fox milkshake- even after consuming a very filling breakfast (which you can read about in a future blog!).
2. Patissez, 21 Bougainville St, Griffith ACT 2603.
There are so many reasons to go to Patissez (and I am sure you will hear more from us about Patissez in the future). But for now, I will stick with the Freak Shake! This over-the-top, decadent piece of art milkshake is surprisingly delicate- even with its choc fudge, chocolate, a layer of liquid white gold chocolate, brownie and toasted marshmallow. It’s amazing they can get all that goodness into a shake. Guess that’s why it’s called the Freak Shake!
1. Stand By Me, 1 Lyons Place, Lyons ACT 2606.
This milkshake doesn’t require too many words. The secret to the success of this fantastic milkshake is its simplicity. I am not sure exactly what they do in that kitchen, but this is the creamiest, maltiest, milkiest and chocolatiest milkshake ever. It is simply tasty AF!
We haven’t even started on the Adults milkshakes with spirits and creams yet … I am a little scared of those. Please stay tuned and let us know if you know of a great milkshake, kid-friendly or of the adult variety.
