How to Make the Best Chocolate Shake Ever
To make this shake, you only need a few simple ingredients —

Who says you need ice cream to make a great chocolate shake.
Can I Change the Flavors Around?
The answer is YES! In place of the cocoa powder, you can use fresh strawberries pureed. And, if you really want to bump up the flavor, turn it into a Cookies and Cream milkshake using delicious Oreo Cookies.
The possibilities are endless with this recipe.
