11 Milkshakes in NYC

The Cookie at Black Tap Burger


Yeah, everyone is basically obsessed with the milkshakes at Black Tap Burger right now. And for good reason. Not only are the sweet concoctions Instagram-friendly, but the different flavors – including Oreo Cookies & Cream, Nutella and U Bet Chocolate – are delicious and addictive. They also have their Shakes by Black Tap that features The Cookie, Sweet’n Salty and Cotton Candy(featured below). 529 Broome St. and 248 W. 14th St.

Peppermint Chocolate Chip Milkshake at Chick-fil-A

Chic-Fil-a Milkshakes in NYC

This fast food joint opened up last year and already has rabid fans lining up daily for the chicken. But the shakes are nothing to sleep on, either. There are basics like Chocolate and Vanilla, plus standouts including the Peppermint Chocolate Chip Milkshake. If you like variety they also add different flavors with the season. 1000 Avenue of the Americas.

Black and White Milkshake Shake Shack

As the name suggests, Shake Shack knows a thing or two about ice cream beverages. Made with the Shack’s hand-spun vanilla and chocolate custard, the Black & White Shake is so decadent and delicious, you may not even have room for a burger. Just kidding. Various locations, www.shakeshack.com

Harlem Shake (Red Velvet) at Harlem Shake

Go to Harlem for this Red Velvet Shake by the name of Harlem Shake, obviously. If you don’t like red velvet you can pick from one of the other flavors that include salted caramel, peach, strawberry, peanut butter, double chocolate bacon, wild cherry, or cookies & cream. Shakes start at $4.50 to 6.25. www.harlemshakenyc.com

Bananas Foster Milkshake at BareBurger

Bananas Foster Milkshake at Bare Burger

We already loved BareBurger for their mouth-watering organic, grass-fed beef patties. But we keep coming back for the shakes, especially the Bananas Foster Milkshake made with all-organic vanilla ice cream, milk and fruit, topped with caramel sauce. Yes, seriously. Various locations; www.bareburger.com

The Nut Crack’r at Momofuku Milk Bar

Nut Crack'r Milkshake Momofuku Milk Bar

They recently turned their crack pie into a boozy milkshake called the Nut Crack’r. Ingredients include: simple syrup, Frangelico, Crack Pie Soft Serve and a pinch of salt. We are also obsessed with the Cereal Milk soft serve at Milk Bar – and ever more obsessed with the shake version. Various location: milkbarstore.com

Cold Brew Milkshake at Oddfellows Ice Cream Co.

The brainchild of Sam Mason, Oddfellows Ice Cream Co. is known for their off-beat flavors like chorizo caramel swirl and tobacco leaf-smoked chili huckleberry made from locally sourced milk from Battenkill Valley Creamery. We loooove coffee and what could be better than Grady’s Cold Brew Milkshake? While they don’t have an official milkshake menu, the shop is happy to turn any of the 8-10 flavors available daily into a 16-ounce shake. Also: ice cream floats made with Virgil’s gourmet soda. 175 Kent Avenue, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, 347.599.0556, oddfellowsnyc.com

Pie Shake at Hill Country Chicken

Pie of the Day Shake at Hill Country Chicken

Hill Country Chicken makes chicken and fresh baked pies, but you should go there and get the Pie Shake that is vanilla ice cream blended with their pie of the day. They have two locations, one in Flatiron / NoMad in Manhattan and another one on Adams Street in Brooklyn. $6.25.
