Orange iced chocolate and milkshake recipe
A classic pairing that's one of our most popular in store. Our orange iced chocolate and milkshake recipe is easy to recreate at home using our mellow, smooth 54% Dark chocolate flakes + fresh orange zest.
Using 54% Dark chocolate flakes means that our iced chocolate recipe is vegan. To make your milkshake vegan, just choose a plant-based ice cream. You can also experiment with different % chocolate flakes.
Ingredients + equipment (makes 1 medium drink):
Start by making a small hot chocolate. Add milk up to level 2 in your shaker (about 100ml), then add 5 teaspoons of 54% Dark chocolate flakes.
Put the shaker in the microwave (without the lid) for half a minute. Or, you can heat your milk on the hob and add it to the flakes in the shaker.
Put the lid on the shaker, making sure it’s pressed down, and then secure the lid fully. Shake for 10 seconds or until all the flakes melt.
Zest half a teaspoon of orange, then top up with cold milk. (We recommend giving your orange a quick soak in hot water followed by a scrub with a vegetable brush to get rid of any wax and impurities before zesting.)
For iced chocolates - Add some ice cubes to your shaker, give your drink another quick shake, then pour and enjoy.
For milkshakes - Add 3 small scoops of ice cream, shake and then taste. You can add more ice cream depending on your taste preferences. Make sure to add small scoops or teaspoons of ice cream so that it melts properly.
Give your drink another quick shake, then pour and enjoy your orange iced chocolate.
