Shake Things Up For National Chocolate Milkshake Day

Shake Things Up For National Chocolate Milkshake Day

A chocolate milkshake is a dessert that unites both chocolate and ice cream lovers in just one slurp. Everything about a milkshake seems to take you back to a time when ladies on roller skates brought food out to cars, and Little Richard, Elvis Presley, and Jerry Lee Lewis played on jukeboxes in diners. We’ve come a long way since that era, but have we become more conscious of our food choices?

 

Milkshake History:

The milkshake first entered print history in 1885 as a “sturdy healthful eggnog type of drink” that contained eggs, whiskey, and other ingredients. Pharmacies sold these drinks as tonics, and continued to sell more of these “wholesome beverages” in strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla flavors by the year 1900. Milkshakes became popular drinks at malt shops in the 1920s and have been dominating the shake market ever since.

 

Fast food chains commonly sell milkshakes, and they are typically loaded with sugar, calories, unhealthy carbohydrates, and dairy, obviously. A chocolate milkshake may taste delicious, but your blood vessels have a different opinion about this classic dessert beverage. A single milkshake contains about 1,000 calories and 80 grams of fat, and it can dilate blood vessels and change the shape of red blood cells. Red blood cells are typically smooth, but they become spiky after drinking a milkshake, or other high-fat meal. One study even found that men experienced increased levels of the myeloperoxidase, an enzyme that has been linked with stiff blood vessels and heart attacks, after consuming a single chocolate milkshake.

 

We don’t want to get you down about milkshakes; rather, we strive to make people more aware of what they are putting in their bodies. You can still enjoy a milkshake today, especially if you make one of the following recipes. Using fresh ingredients and natural sweeteners, these chocolate shakes taste delicious.
