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!
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 – 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 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 – 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.
- Add the double cream and whisk until it starts to thicken.
- As it starts to thicken, with the whisk still running, slowly pour in the Mr Sherick’s Pot au Choc shake.
- 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 😉
Yes this gelato made with Mr Sherick’s Pot au Choc Shake is absolutely phenomenal!
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.
