10 Ways to Make Your Chocolate Milkshake a Little More Adult

One obvious way to take your chocolate milkshake to the next level and make it “for adults only” is by breaking out the booze. Beer or Baileys, it doesn’t matter — you can add plenty of different kinds of alcohol to your chocolate milkshake with the correct recipe.

If you want your chocolate milkshake to be adult but you’d rather pass on the booze, there are other ways to make it a bit more mature. All you need to do is take another ingredient, like a salty snack or a juicy piece of fruit, add it into your chocolate milk recipe, and presto! Your milkshake will be more mature than ever before.

Here are a few tactics for taking your chocolate milkshake to the next level.

Indulge with Oreos
