Not in the mood to eat because of the heat? It's time for a milkshake! The perfect summer cooler, which is delicious as well as nutritious, can be whizzed up in numerous decadent flavours. The best part is that you can have it as breakfast, a light lunch and even a quick refreshment when on the go. Add in a dollop of ice cream and sprinkle some nuts on top and there's nothing quite like it. If we had to choose the single most decadent drink, we would crown that title to the milkshake. No, not just because milkshakes are delicious but because they appeal to our sense of nostalgia. They take us back to the good old days, remind us of the little joys of childhood. They are everything ice cream ever wanted to be (and more).
Now don't get us wrong, we definitely enjoy digging into an ice cream sandwich or an epic sundae. But there are days (we've all been through them) when only a milkshake will do. It is the very definition of decadence. Wouldn't you agree?
