With milkshakes so popular nowadays, we might be tempted to think they are a relatively new dessert. However, references to milkshakes as a dessert have been used since the early 1900s. In more recent years the popularity of these delicious beverages has skyrocketed thanks to the great variety of ingredients that can be now purchased to enhance the flavor of this savory dessert.
