Cookies and Cream Milkshake
Why treat yourself to cookies and milk when you can savor a decadent dessert/milkshake hybrid made with crushed Oreos instead? Nicole from I am a honey bee likes to blend her favorite treat and we couldn’t be more thankful. Not only can you eat your cookies, but you can drink them, too!

Nicole couldn’t tantalize us enough, she also whipped up the dangerously delicious Snickers Milkshake. Her recipe features creamy peanut butter, rich caramel sauce, and a generous serving of vanilla ice cream that soaks up chocolate chips and roasted peanuts.

Wendy of Around My Family Table shares the recipe for her Strawberry Shortcake Milkshake, which includes slices of fluffy angel food cake and juicy strawberries, which can be dumped into the mix. Wendy describes her recipe as “magical” and we have to agree.

Salted Caramel Milkshake
Not a huge fan of chocolate? Not a problem. Maria of Mia Loves Pretty, who admits to not being a “massive milkshake fan,” created her salted caramel milkshake for those looking to indulge without chocolate in the mix. The best way to enjoy a salted caramel milkshake? When the sauce, or what Maria calls “the goopy gloriousness,” covers the glass.

Want to know what a “liquefied lemon cheesecake” tastes like? Whip up Heather of Curly Girl Kitchen’s lemon icebox pie milkshake. She describes it as “light and summery, cold and creamy, tart and sweet.” Who would have thought that scoops of vanilla bean ice cream, a little cream cheese, and lemon juice tasted so good together?

Dulce de Leche Bacon Milkshake
When it comes to making a milkshake, what goes great with caramel? Some crispy bacon, of course. According to Desiree of SteakNPotatoesKindaGurl, “Technically, it’s DOUBLE dulce de leche because instead of vanilla ice cream, I used Haagen Dazs Dulce de Leche Caramel Ice Cream." That’s good enough for us.
