Recipe of the week – Salted Caramel Milk Shakes!

As summer is slowly coming to an end in the Southern Hemisphere, what better way to embrace those summer afternoons than with a milkshake! Check out this delicious feel-good milkshake recipe below:



MAKES: 6 medium size milkshakes

PREPARATION: 5 minutes

COOKING: 10 mins



4 large scoops any vanilla bean ice cream

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

½ cup milk

3-4 tablespoons salted caramel mixture (recipe below), plus extra for decorating.

50g of Dark Chocolate, finely chopped.

Salted Caramel:

1 cup (200g) caster sugar

90g butter

½ cup (120ml) pure cream

1- 2 teaspoons salt


Place the sugar in a medium sized saucepan and heat over medium heat until the sugar has completely melted. Stir occasionally to make sure all the sugar melts. The sugar will form clumps as stirred but will completely melt down until a deep brown colour. Make sure not to burn the sugar.

Once the sugar is melted add the butter and stir until completely combined (2-3 minutes). The mixture will bubble rapidly when the butter is added, be sure to take care of the hot melted sugar.

Once the butter and sugar mixture is completely melted and incorporated, add the cream to the mixture.

Combine the cream by slowly drizzling into the mixture whilst stirring. The mixture will bubbly rapidly again as the cream is much colder than the sugar mixture.

Stir till everything is incorporated and then allow the mixture to come to the boil.

Boil for one minute without stirring. Once boiled, remove from the heat and stir in the salt. Set aside in a heatproof bowl and allow to cool.

In a blender or milkshake mixture add the milk, vanilla, ice cream, chocolate and salted caramel mixture. Blend until thick and smooth and everything is blended.

Line the inside of the glasses with extra salted caramel mixture. Pour in the milkshake mixture and topped with shaved chocolate… ENJOY!

** For an added twist, why not add some Walters handmade honey nougat in to the mixture!!
