Copycat Chick-fil-A Chocolate Milkshake Recipe Team Team Published September 1, 2020

Chick-fil-A might be known for their chicken sandwich but their chocolate milkshake is clearly stealing the spotlight. Above all, people remember this delicious milkshake for its thick and rich consistency. Moreover, Chick-fil-A’s chocolate milkshake is a true classic with the right amount of sweetness that just hit the spot. However, despite making a milkshake that’s close to the famous fast food joint staple, you can certainly whip up your own version of a chocolate milkshake. 

Apart from topping it with beautiful red cherry, you can also add a pop of color by using sprinkles. Milkshakes aren’t the healthiest drink in the world. Although, you needn’t wrack your head to think of guilt-free alternatives. You can toss in some banana, strawberries, or peaches to ease the sugar overload. Furthermore, they’re natural sweeteners without depending on artificial ingredients. And if you’re a vegan, you can always go for dairy-free ice cream. Following a certain diet shouldn’t hold you back from treating yourself to a fantastic drink. 

Even more, there are tons of ways to twist this recipe to your liking plus it won’t make much of a mess. Serve it in a tall glass with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and voila! You can enjoy a glorious chocolate milkshake float right in the comfort of your home. Pair this chocolate milkshake with our Copycat Red Robin’s Steak Fries to offset that sweet flavor with a salty snack. So, grab your blender, head right into the kitchen and make some creamy milkshakes

Commonly Asked Questions

Are there substitutes for chocolate ice cream?

You can use chocolate milk or cocoa powder as an alternative to chocolate ice cream. However, you won’t be able to achieve that thick and creamy consistency. What you can do is blend in a few ice cubes to thicken the milkshake or use 1 ½ cup of heavy whipping cream to replace milk.

Can I make a milkshake without a blender?

Yes! One of the ways to make a milkshake without a blender is by mixing it in a mason jar. Throw in your ingredients into the jar and shake until it reaches your desired texture. You can also stir or whisk your ingredients together in a bowl, although it might require some arm-muscle.
