National Chocolate Milkshake Day on September 12th is a celebration of delicate milkshakes infused with chocolate. These desserts are loved all over the world and have many fans. Creamy texture, soft foam, and astringency of chocolate – it is so delicious!
The exact date when this holiday appeared, as well as the chocolate milkshake itself, is not known. The term ‘milkshake’ first appeared in 1885. Then it was an incomprehensible mixture of eggs, milk, and strong alcohol. In the 1900s, the composition was finalized. Now it was positioned differently (the alcohol, of course, was removed from the recipe). When preparing it, they added various syrups based on berries.
The real progress in milkshake making came in 1922, when an American chemist originally from Poland invented the blender. At that time, he owned the Stevens Electric Company and patented his invention. Now drinks were made in a few minutes and sold in every self-respecting institution. Chocolate milkshake is one of the most popular. There are many recipes for its preparation. The classic set of ingredients (milk, eggs, and chocolate) is complemented by ice cream, an abundance of fruit syrups, berries, and sweet spices like vanilla and cinnamon.
- Chocolate milkshake is not only delicious but also a healthy drink. It is rich in fast carbohydrates and useful trace elements. It improves mood and makes a person more energetic.
- The first mention of milkshakes was in a newspaper article in 1885. Then they were simply called ‘milkshakes’ and they were based on strong alcohol (most often whiskey).
