'Milkshake' on Serious Eats
Back to school season got you down? I have a feeling these recipes might help: eight different ideas for homemade milkshakes, easy to whip up for dessert or an after-school snack.
I'm not about to be so bold as to publicly hate on pie, but when summer berries are so close to perfect it can feel like a bit of a crime to throw all of them in the oven. These berry shakes are a perfect way to enjoy summer berries as close to their natural state of perfection as possible when you've tired of just shoving them in your face by the handful.
Just in time for a record-breaking ascent into high summer temperatures, mall cinnamon roll hawker Cinnabon joins the Reese's craze with the limited-time-only Peanut Butter Cup Chillatta, the latest in its line of sweetened iced beverages.
The name really should've tipped us off, with two super-sugary confections named smack dab in center of the title. This new milkshake from McDonald's is sweet.
When it comes to sweet, minty, St. Patrick's Day-inspired fast food drinks, most folks channel their excitement toward the Shamrock Shake from McDonald's. But the new Lucky Mint Coolatta ($3 for a small, pictured) from Dunkin' Donuts gives that green drink a run for its money.
Something about Nutella makes even the most mild mannered horf it down in an animalistic frenzy. And while Pacific Northwest-based Burgerville isn't using any actual Nutella here, the spirit of the transcendent spread is alive and well in the chain's delicious seasonal Chocolate Hazelnut Milkshake.
Steak 'n Shake recently released a trio of new shakes for the holiday season: egg nog, white chocolate, and peppermint chocolate chip. We tried them all. Though these shakes don't make quite the same impression as in the beauty shot, they are some pretty excellent milkshakes.
Arby's may be known for its fast-food roast beef sandwiches, but that hasn't stopped the national chain from getting in the holiday spirit of things with its new Peppermint Stick Swirl Shake.
Burgerville sources their pumpkins from Stahlbush Island Farms in Corvallis, Oregon, located 80 miles south of Portland. Because pureed pumpkin reaches a much smoother consistency than, say, blackberries or raspberries, this is Burgerville's easiest-drinking seasonal shake yet. For lovers of milkshakes and pumpkin + spice, Burgerville's fall seasonal shake is an easy recommendation.
Here at SE Drinks, we like to celebrate each season with milkshakes. (Girl Scout Cookie Time is a season, right?) And since we can't resist pumpkin flavored sips in autumn, we recently spent a (very filling) afternoon blending up this group of deliciously fall-appropriate sippable desserts.
An excellent milkshake taste like fresh, high-quality dairy with a good balance of milk and ice cream. Too thick and it's just soggy ice cream, too thin and it's soupy milk. Too much syrup and you've got an overly sweet ticket to naptime. But a good shake will help you forget you're sucking down a glass full of 1,000 calories, and our nation's capital has quite a few winners. Here are 5 of our favorite milkshakes in Washington, D.C.
The latest seasonal milkshake from Burgerville, a chain of fast-food restaurants in the Pacific Northwest, features fresh, locally grown strawberries and ice cream from a Portland dairy. We gave it a try to see if it was worth waiting a year for those fresh berries.
People go gaga over this drink: each Shamrock season, blogs (like, well, us) and news sites around the country hail its return to the McDonald's menu, and there's even an entire website, shamrockshake.com, devoted to tracking down the milkshake (which, presumably, will be a lot easier to do this year, but that hasn't stopped users from breathlessly posting local "sightings"). What is it about this soft-serve creation that gets people so fired up?
As part of Jack in the Box's recent and mildly disturbing "Love Bacon? Marry It." advertising campaign, the scientists slaving away in the fast food chain's laboratories have concocted a new milkshake that will either have you sprinting to the nearest franchise location or recoiling in horror: the Bacon Shake.
The foundation of every good pistachio milkshake is pistachio ice cream or gelato—easy enough. It's impossible for me to pick a favorite among these treats; each shake serves a different purpose and craving.
If there's a Scandinavian sweet to write home about, it's licorice—and while you'll easily find it enrobed in chocolate, caramel, marzipan and more, even my wildest dairy fantasies had not yet imagined it in milkshake format. Until now.
As the name suggests, this place is a Big Easy tribute plopped down on the outskirts of downtown Portland, Maine. No surprise, then, that they're pulling pints of Abita, but you'd never guess that this Turbodog shake is chocolate-free.
