9 Epic Milkshake Recipes That Will Make You Weak in the Knees

If you were expecting healthy, low-fat fare, turn back now. It’s not too late to go on eating your asparagus stalks and seasonal greens. But if you’re up for a diet-busting, take-no-prisoners sugar high, read on — it’s milkshake season, and we’re doing it right.

Sure, you can shake things up with fro-yo and skim milk. It’s possible. It’s also very sad, like mentioning milkshakes without the requisite, rousing chorus of that one Kelis song. So this week, we rounded up the creamiest, most spectacular recipes, from toasted marshmallow to cherry and bourbon. Grill up some burgers and grab a tall glass — we’re bringing all the shakes to the yard.

Cherry on Top

We love cherries. But the one thing that takes them from delicious to next-level divine? Roasting them. How Sweet Eats makes roasted cherries the star of the show — and then pours hot fudge all over, because she just gets us.
