As the mercury is rising across the country, people are finding ways to beat the heat. People generally opt for hydrating drinks and shakes during the hot summer months. There is nothing like indulging in delicious and refreshing smoothies, mocktails, cocktails, and milkshakes.   

When it comes to milkshakes, just adding flavours to the milk may not seem to be too much fun. If you want a creamy, rich milkshake, you must make it thicker. Wondering how? The most common way is to add ice cream to your milkshakes. However, if you do not want ice cream and the added calories it provides, you can opt for other options as well. From experimental to classic, you can indulge in the iconic cool treats to achieve respite from the heat waves. Here are six thick milkshakes you can enjoy in the summer season. 

  • Caramel Candy Bar Shake  

In the hot summer months, enjoy the coolness of the luscious Caramel Candy Bar Shake. You can make this by blending together vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce, and chunks of your favouite candy bars such as Snickers. Pour the milkshake in a glass and top it with whipped cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce, or a candy bar. 

  • Mango Chia Seeds Shake  

Summer seems to be incomplete without a mango milkshake. This mango milkshake can be made without ice cream. Instead, opt for chia seeds which will make the milkshake thicker. First and foremost, soak chia seeds overnight in milk. In a blender, add mango, creamy coconut milk, and honey for sweetness. After everything is blended, add the overnight soaked chia seeds to it. Add more milk if required. Your Mango Chia Seeds Milkshake is ready. Serve with ice cubes.   

  • Thick Cake Shake  

Nothing can look thicker than the thick cake shakes. To make this shake, all you need is slices of your favourite cake – chocolate, red velvet, or butter scotch.

You can add whipped cream over the shake or top it with chunks of fresh strawberries. You can enjoy the drink on a lazy summer afternoon.  

  • Peanut Butter Banana Shake  

You can make this protein-rich milkshake by not using ice cream. This milkshake is thickened with the help of peanut butter, froze fruits, and frozen milk. First, freeze the milk in the ice tray.
