Dessert, meet cocktail. Cocktail, meet dessert. 

Yep, this is totally happening! We are making milkshakes and spiking them with booze, and it isn’t even Friday! These aren’t just any run of the mill milkshakes though, this tasty sip is loaded with juicy fresh cherries, dark chocolate, vegan chocolate ice cream, hazelnut liqueur and Silk’s Dark Chocolate + Walnut Nutchello! Trust me when I say these Boozy Chocolate Covered Cherry Milkshake’s are perfection after a long day.

Silk’s new line of Nutchello beverages has become a nightly indulgence in our house. The fruit bandit gets so excited about the offer of a frosty cold glass of Nutchello that I can bribe him with it to eat all the food on his plate. Once I have the bottle out of the fridge though it is just a quick whirl in the blender away from being a decadent adults only milkshake that Todd and I absolutely love!
