Milk – 1cup
Cocoa powder – 1 tablespoon
Chocolate syrup – 2-3 tablespoons
Your favorite chocolate energy drink powder – 2 tablespoons
Ice cream – 3 scoops
Sugar – as per your requirement
Once you have all these ingredients, you are all set to make your favorite chocolate milkshake in just 5 simple steps. And guess what! This is going to be healthy too!
Step 1: Bring all the ingredients together
Make sure you are decked up with all the ingredients before you begin to make your chocolate milkshake. If you miss any of the above in the ingredients, you will not be able to get the desired results.
Step 2: Put all ingredients into the blender
Pour the milk followed by the cocoa powder, chocolate syrup, ice cream, sugar and your energy drink powder. Blend all this for about when the ingredients mix together and are in a consistent form. If the mixture is too runny then you might see a layer of froth above the milkshake. If you are not very fond of this, then you might want to get rid of this before you serve it.
An experiment like this may bring out the best energy drink for your kids!
Step 3: Add more ice cream for thick shakes
If you do not like a runny shake and want it to be thicker, add more ice cream and blend a little more. The ideal time to blend is to wait till the ice cream to melt in the shake. To check the consistency, you may want to put a spoon in the shake to see if it easily passes through. It should be difficult to pass a spoon or straw through a thick shake normally.
Step 4: Serve in a glass
Pour the chocolate milkshake in a glass and add ice if required. You can also pour some chocolate syrup on the walls of the glass to make it look exciting for your kids.
Step 5: Garnish it
Once you have this in the glass, it is time for you to garnish it; this is the most interesting part! You can be innovative to try different things here. Banana goes well with chocolate shakes; so you might want to cut half a banana into small pieces and place it on the surface with some whipped cream. You can also add whipped cream topped up with chocolate shavings or nuts.
Drinking milk is not as pleasant for every child and so you might have to put some efforts like this to befriend them to milk. This is much better a form than a regular cup of warm milk. There are a lot of things one can do to serve milk in an interesting and exciting way. The healthy chocolate milk shake is just one of them.
