15 Homemade Freakshakes That Will Bring All The Boys To Your Yard

We can all agree that milkshakes are the ultimate drink. Like, they basically classify as a dessert, because they are absolute after lunch/dinner goals. OK, you may not agree with me yet, but after I introduce freakshakes to you, you definitely will. Freakshakes are milkshakes, but bigger, bolder, and tastier. They are basically the celebrities when it comes to milkshakes, and you'll definitely want to get to know them. What makes them so special is that they usually have stuff on top of them, and when I say "stuff," I pretty much mean cakes, brownies, doughnuts, or anything else that's insanely delicious. I mean when you think about it, why not combine two yummy things into one? It can surely only get better. And these freaksahkes are definitely the crème de la crème of the milkshakes.

Here are 15 freakshake recipes that you have to try out in your lifetime.

Continuing with the sweet and salty theme, here's a lovely salted caramel milkshake that is, I have to warn you, quite addicting. If you make it once, you'll definitely make it again. And by again I mean like everyday. For it you'll need some caramel sauce, chocolate sauce, milk, caramel ice cream, a chocolate glazed ring doughnut (OK, the doughnut is optional, but it's what makes this milkshake a freakshake), and some whipped cream. BRB, I'm going to go to the store right now to pick up a doughnut so I can make this. Look at how delicious it all looks, and the fact that you get to enjoy a doughnut and a milkshake in one sitting will make you feel so #blessed.

Something that looks this amazing can't possibly taste just as amazing? Sure it does, try making any of these freakshakes and you'll see. This one consists out of five super easy ingredients: some vanilla ice cream, milk, peanut butter, chocolate sauce and pretzels. It has that sweet and salty combo, but this time, the peanut butter intensifies the whole experience, and trust me, your tastebuds will be in love. To decorate it, you can use any peanut buttery chocolates you like, but Reese's Peanut Butter Cups work especially well. Don't skip the decorating, it's actually 50% of the fun. The other 50% is obviously the drinking/eating/experiencing what true happiness really feels like.

9 The Ultimate Vegan Freakshake

Here's a tried and true vegan freakshake recipe, even though, as said, most of these can be tweaked and turned into vegan ones by using certain substitutes. But hey, if you're lazy and don't want figure out what substitutes would work, or if you're not sure if it's gonna turn out as delicious, I've still got you covered. The ingredients might be harder to find (AKA you may not have them all in your fridge right now), but your local grocery store or health shop should carry them. Plus, it is insanely good.  It's also healthier than most of the other ones. This recipe shows you how to make everything from scratch, but if you're lazy, you might as well use pre-made vegan vanilla ice cream. To make this healthy vegan deliciousness, you'll need some young thai coconut flesh, coconut water, coconut cream, vanilla bean paste, maple syrup, almond milk, dairy-free whipped cream, pretzels, dairy-free chocolate, caramel sauce, and a vegan chocolate brownie. Yes, I know it is quite a lot, but you need to treat yourself like royalty, hence why you should try this yummy vegan freakshake.

To make it, you'll need some coconut butter, frozen bananas cut into chunks, coconut cream, pink dragon fruit powder, dates (which have been soaked in water overnight), and last but not least, a Coconut cookie with pink dragon fruit jam. Did I mention this one was vegan as well? However, you definitely don't have to be vegan to enjoy it.

7 Edible Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Freakshake

This one is for all the raw cookie dough lovers out there (which is basically all of us).

Oh, and the cookies for decorating; let's not forget those. You can make them yourself, or buy them, whatever floats your boat. Honestly, this one tastes so good it should be obligatory for everyone to try it. And yeah, sure, it's not the healthiest thing to have, but it's totally worth it, and you can run a circle around your neighborhood afterwords to try and neutralize the calorie damage you've done. You will for sure have enough energy from all the sugar.

6 Strawberry Freakshake

This fruity milkshake is absolutely perfect for all of you out there who don't really feel like devouring a ton of chocolatey goodness. I am definitely judging you, but I guess to each their own. This heavenly one is strawberry themed, but you can easily substitute the strawberries with another berry of your preference. To make it, you'll need some strawberry ice cream, strawberry sauce, mini marshmallows, gummy bears, whipped cream, dried strawberries, and an iced strawberry donut (again, optional, but please don't exclude it). Pink milkshakes always look so beautiful, but then again, all milkshakes do, don't they? You should never discriminate between milkshakes. They do, after all, bring the boys to your yard.

Here's another liquor-infused milkshake, because, why not have the option, am I right? Plus, you can never have enough milkshake recipes to begin with. To make this chocolate coconut Kahlúa freakshake, you'll need some salted caramel ice cream, milk, Kahlúa, coconut rum, and chocolate sauce. I mean, with those ingredients nothing could ever possibly go wrong. These milkshakes are basically idiot-proof and no matter how clumsy you are in the kitchen, you will still be able to make all of these.

Happy drinking!

4 Chocolate Brownie Cookies & Cream Freakshake

Brownies seem to be a freakshake favorite, so here's another recipe with them, and this one includes everyone's favorite: Oreos. To make it you'll need some chewy brownies (you can buy them our make them), a caramel filling (or store bought sauce), caramel tarts, Oreos, cookies and cream ice cream, vanilla ice cream, milk, whipped cream, chocolate sauce, dark chocolate, and butter. It turns out looking like an absolute mess, but the type of mess that actually looks like an art piece that should be displayed in a museum and never ever eaten. Except, not eating it would definitely be a sin. And nobody wants to be sinner, so I guess if you make it, you'd have to eat it. It's OK, a photo of it can still hang in a museum for eternity.

3 Mango & Coconut Freakshake

Here's another fruity milkshake, and this one is just as good as the strawberry one.

It's vegan, and super healthy, and this one will definitely leave you guilt free. This means that you can make it as often, and as much as you'd like. For the toppings you can use some coconut yoghurt, coconut flakes, almond flakes, oat and barley granola, soy protein crisps, mango and passion fruit sauce, and passion fruit. But you can also use toppings of your own choice, and that's the great thing about all these milkshakes – once you've got the base down, you can play with the toppings and decorations as much as you'd like.

2 Vegan Macadamia, Banana & Vanilla Freakshake

Here's another vegan milkshake, and to make this one you'll need large peeled, chopped and frozen bananas, macadamia butter, pitted dates, vanilla powder or extract, salt, plant based milk (almond, brown rice, etc), peanut and almond popcorn, and caramel sauce. It is super easy to make, and again, it's a healthier option then your classic high in calorie milkshakes, so you can enjoy it more often. Frozen bananas are a great and cheap base for vegan milkshakes, and they also add a lot of sweetness to them, so there is really no need to add additional sugar. Plus, they are very versatile, and you can make tons of different vegan milkshakes from them.
