National Chocolate Milkshake Day

National Chocolate Milkshake Day 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’s so delicious! Celebrated annually on September 12th.


The exact date of the appearance of this holiday, as well as the milk-chocolate cocktail itself, is not known. The term “Milkshake” was first mentioned 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 as a useful product (alcohol, of course, was removed from the recipe). When preparing it, they began to add various syrups based on berries.

The real progress in cocktail 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. Milk chocolate shake 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 (vanilla, cinnamon).
