Mr Sherick’s Milkshake Review

Who doesn’t love a thick, creamy, ice cold milkshake? I know I do! So when asked to try a few shakes made by Mr Sherick’s and maybe create a recipe or two I leapt at the chance. Enjoy my Mr Sherick’s Milkshake Review, plus a bonus GIVEAWAY!

Cookies and Cream shake with cookies of course!

The very nice people at Mr Sherick’s sent me 5 different, luxury shakes to try. They were packaged well in a cool bag with an ice pack.

Cookies and Cream – A creamy, thick, luxurious vanilla shake with real pieces of cookie and belgian chocolate chips.

This was the first milkshake I tried, I also happened to have baked some Rolo Chocolate Cookies which accompanied it perfectly. Thick, creamy, vanilla shake with real pieces of cookie and chocolate in the shake. Absolutely delicious with great texture, this shake was a little rich – that didn’t stop me from finishing the bottle though 😉. A firm 9/10

Hint of Mint Milkshake churned into ice cream!

Hint of Mint – A creamy, thick, luxurious, chocolate shake, made with real chocolate and mint choc chips added.

After a quick taste of this thick, chocolate shake with delicious pieces of mint choc chips, I knew I wanted to turn it into an ice cream. The shake has a deep chocolate flavour that allows the mint to be, as the label suggests, a hint. Very refreshing. Turning it into Mint Chocolate Milkshake Ice Cream takes it to another level, with the mint still coming through after the initial chocolate taste.

Whether drunk as a shake or turned into ice cream, Hint of Mint is my personal favourite amongst all the flavours I tried. No question a definite 10/10.

Strawberry Pavolva Milkshake with real pieces of meringue.

Strawberry Pavlova – Made with real strawberry juice and pulp this luxuriously thick, creamy shake contains real pieces of meringue.

I have to say that this Strawberry Pavlova shake is so pretty to look at. I don’t know how they do it, but if you look in the glass there really are pieces of meringue suspended throughout the entire shake. Of all the shakes, this for me was the sweetest and tasted exactly like strawberry milkshake should. Whilst I enjoyed the sensation of meringue pieces in the shake, it was, just a tiny bit too sweet for my palette. So a firm 9/10, only dropping a mark for the extra sweetness.

Choc Chip Latte delicious with chocolate drizzled shortbread cookies.

Choc Chip Latte – Coffee flavoured, luxurious thick, creamy shake with Belgian chocolate chips.

Ooh if you like coffee then you will love this shake. Luxuriously thick and creamy, with a strong, yet not overpowering coffee flavour, added Belgian chocolate chips simply send this shake over the top. I imagine this shake would also make a very good ice cream or gelato. No question about it a firm 10/10.

Finally as part of my Mr Sherick’s Milkshake Review I wanted to try something new. Having made a lot of ice creams this summer, all made with a custard base and churned, I decided to make a gelato. This was a huge gamble for me. I had one bottle of milkshake left, what if it didn’t work?

Read on to see what happened and how you could win a cool bag full of Mr Sherick’s utterly delicious, luxury shakes.

Pot au Choc – Luxuriously thick, creamy, deepy chocolate milkshake, made with real chocolate and added Belgian chocolate chips.

Pot au Chocolate Gelato – an incredibly creamy, rich chocolate ice cream, that’s made without using an egg custard base and does not need churning in an ice cream maker.

Recipe: Make approx 1l Pot au Chocolate Gelato

250ml Bottle Pot au Choc Milkshake made by Mr Shericks Shakes

300mls Double Cream

397g Tin Condensed Milk – I used Carnation

50g Dark Belgian Chocolate finely chopped

Method: You will need a 1 litre plus freezer proof tub with lid

  • Pour the condensed milk into a large bowl.

  • Continue whisking until the mixture can hold a figure of eight for 5 seconds. The unfrozen gelato will be thick and airy, but not as thick as whipped cream.
  • Pour the gelato mix into a freezer proof container.
  • Add two thirds of the chopped chocolate and swirl through using a wooden spoon handle. Then add the remaining chocolate to the top.

  • Pop on a tight fitting lid and place in the freezer for 24 hours.
  • 24 hours later, once the gelato is frozen, remove from the freezer and allow to sit at room temperature for 10 minutes.
  • Scoop the Pot au Chocolate Gelato into jazzed up ice cream cones. And enjoy 😉

Pot au Chocolate Gelato ooh so good.

Yes this gelato made with Mr Sherick’s Pot au Choc Shake is absolutely phenomenal!

FF Mr Sherick's Milkshake Review
Mr Sherick’s Milkshake Review Pot au Chocolate Gelato easy to make and easier to eat!

Having tasted the Pot au Choc shake prior to making this gelato, I found it to be rich, creamy and deeply chocolatey, with little nuggets of Belgian chocolate. It is  a firm 10/10.

My advice with this Pot au Choc or any of the shakes is to buy two bottles. One to drink straight away, as they are outstanding shakes and another to turn into ice cream or gelato at home.

Mr Sherick’s Shakes are the epitomy of milkshake luxury. Delightful, creamy flavours with added texture, they are by far the very best shakes I have ever tried.

Blueberry Banana Superfood Smoothies

Hello lovely people, thank you for stopping by to read my blog. I really do appreciate each and everyone of you. So I thought I’d share my latest Summer cool down drink with you – Blueberry Banana Superfood Smoothies. A fabulously tasty way of recharging your system.

Blueberry Banana Superfood Smoothies - that gorgeous colour is enough to make you smile.

Why Superfoods? Blueberries are full of antioxidants and are known to be good for your nervous system and brain. Bananas are high in Vitamin C, fibre and can help regulate blood sugar levels. They can also help with mood enhancement. These fruits have many other positive affects on the body, especially when eaten raw, which is how they are in the Blueberry Banana Superfood Smoothies.

Blueberry Banana Superfood Smoothies - cool, delicious and gorgeous.

If you’re craving something sweet, as I was and don’t want to dive into a tub of chocolate ice cream, then these Blueberry Banana Superfood Smoothies will fix that craving and do your body good at the same time. Yes there is ice cream and whole milk in this recipe, you can totally switch this recipe up and use frozen low fat yoghurt and skimmed milk. The bananas will still give the smoothie a creamy taste.

So good for you - time to slurp up one of these Blueberry Banana Superfood Smoothies!

I was actually really surprised that these smoothies didn’t need extra sweetening, considering the amount of blueberries added. Sometimes blueberries can be a but tart, but the sweetness of the bananas offsets this, leaving the perfect balance. I’ve used frozen blueberries but fresh are fine. To keep the cold in the smoothie just break the bananas up, pop in a bag and freeze.

Using bought frozen fruits keeps the cost down and gives them a longer use-by date. However, I have raspberries growing in our garden and if we have loads I would definitely put them in smoothies. Just do whatever works for you! We’re pretty chilled about things like that, bit like the smoothies!!!!!

Recipe :

400g/14oz Frozen Blueberries

3 Large Ripe Bananas

250ml Whole Milk

4 Large Scoops Vanilla Ice Cream – approx 1/2pint – 300ml

Method :

Peel the bananas, break into pieces and add to a liquidiser. Add the frozen blueberries, ice cream and milk.

Time to whizz up the ingredients.

Look at THAT colour! If the mixture is too thick add more milk. Whizz up and then pour.

I really hope you try this smoothie. Relax, chill out and know those Blueberries and Bananas are doing you good on the inside.

Let me know if you switch up the fruit combo and how it turns out.

Obviously I’d like you too try this one first, but hey it’s Summer, I’m chilled with your choices.

These really are delicious, using frozen raspberries is much cheaper, however if you have an abundance of fresh berries, by all means use them.

I’m already thinking of other flavour combos – do you have any suggestions?
