    For the last installment of Frozen Treat Week, we’re bringing you a boozy shake that will cool you down this summer! This Guinness Chocolate Milkshake recipe as well as the great giveaways from our sponsors Blendtec and Big Kitchen, will get you pumped for what’s left of summer! 


    It’s Friday so we’re keeping this short and sweet! For this last recipe, I wanted to make a more grown-up version of milkshakes and what’s more adult than a cold beer?! Blended together with creamy chocolate ice cream, a touch of dark molasses, and a splash of vanilla extract, this recipe will become your go-to treat this summer!

      Like Katie, I’ve had Guinness floats, but never milkshakes! I need to remedy that STAT. I can almost taste it if I think hard enough about it.
