Chocolate milkshake is the most classic diner drink and that is because it involves only two ingredients: milk and ice cream. Two ingredients make this wonderfully sweet yet frothy beverage. So how can we elevate this basic beverage to the velvety decadent chocolatey drink of your dreams? 

Well, duh, make your own ice cream. Homemade ice cream is infinitely better than any ice cream you buy at a store or an ice-cream parlour. And you can make your customisations, make it sweeter if you like or add any of your fix-ins.
