Ice cream – check. Milk – check. Blender – check. At their heart, that's all you need to make thick American-style milkshakes. But milkshakes are so much more than just that these days. We've scoured the city to find out who's serving up the most moreish milkshakes this side of the Pacific.
1. Double Scoops
Double Scoops are about all things sweet and all things delicious, so you know that their shakes are going to live up to the hype. They don't just do your traditional flavours here, so knuckle down and get ready to push the boat out. Choose from the Cookies and Cream, Thai Milk Tea, Oreo Cheesecake, Roasted Pistachio or After Eight Mint flavours for your off-the-wall milkshake.
Where: Double Scoops, Ang Mo Kio
2. Fatboy's The Burger Bar
It's not a proper American diner if milkshakes aren't on the menu. Fatboy's does their shakes the old-fashioned way, making them thick and malty for extra creaminess. Keeping it simple with good old chocolate, strawberry or vanilla flavours, these drinks are made for savouring. Sip 'em slowly, sharing with someone special or all by yourself. Where: Fatboy's The Burger Bar, nine locations
3. Once Upon A Milkshake
Word on the street is true – Once Upon A Milkshake's drinks are like something out of a fairytale. This Korean-based franchise are all about making your milky dreams come true, and they offer an incredible range of treats. Cinnamon-speckled cookie butter, slightly salty peanut butter and tangy rum and raisin all have their place, but the punchy durian-flavoured shakes have a special place in our heart. Where: Once Upon A Milkshake, locations in City Hall and Punggol Waterway.
4. WOLF Burger
WOLF Burger promise that you'll wolf down their food – but we think it's better to take some time to appreciate it. Alongside their succulent signature burgers, their shakes have become just as popular. Their flavours are clever takes on the classics – so you'll be looking at Horlicks malted milk vanilla, deeply dark chocolate, or a delicate strawberry and rose mix.
Where: WOLF Burgers, Suntec City
5. Xin Bei Healthy Papaya Milkshake
Xin Bei Healthy Papaya Milkshakes are all about the good stuff in our favourite drinks – offering drinks rich in calcium and health benefits. We love the Kiwi Yakult – the flavours work harmoniously together making it sweet, sour and refreshing all in one mouthful. But you can't place an order without trying one of their signature papaya milkshakes. It's pure tangy goodness, Taiwanese-style.
Where: Xin Bei Healthy Papaya Milkshake, Ang Mo Kio
