Do you know how it is when people have a go-to drink when they feel sad or just need something to boost their spirit? Well, I know that I am the “tea latte” kind of a girl, but recently, after discovering Shakeaway (they already have a branch in BGC Uptown mall), milkshakes have been my go-to drink. To tell you honestly, I have never expected myself to be a milkshake kind of a gal. I never really liked super sweet drinks, but after trying Shakeaway’s milkshakes, I am now a convert!
Shakeaway is the original re-inventor of milkshakes and started creating a following in 1999 with the first shop opening in the town of Bournemouth, England. This was their first store. Upon entering their newly opened store in Uptown Mall in BGC, I noticed the shockingly huge menu board.
Shakeaway is actually famous for the 180 flavors and millions of possible combinations of milkshake that is available. You can choose from their ready-made concoctions, that are to-die-for or you can create your own milkshake. They even have the millionaire’s milkshake made with real 23 carat edible gold! This is worth Php 900+.
I’ll be sharing the menu here, so that you can make your decision even before you get to the store:
All of the ingredients are lined up in the counter and each milkshake is right before your very eyes. You can be assured of the quality and the freshness of the ingredients. For the flavors, extras and toppincs, you can choose from these categories: Fruity, Sweety, Chocolatey, Biscuity or Cakey.
Here are the Steps to Create a Customized Milkshake:
- Choose your size: Regular at Php 190 or Large at Php 250
- Pick if you want Ice Cream or Fat Free Yogurt
- Pick your flavors (First one is free; Php 60 for each additional flavor)
- Add your extra: Toppings at Php 30 / Add ice cream at Php 30 / Add boosts or supplements at Php 60
Guess what? They also have hot milkshakes and junior sized milkshakes that your children will love. Zeeka loves the Milo Junior Sized shake.
Okay, now for our recommendations:
For the healthy individual, you can try my own personal favorite, IVY! IVY has kale, banana and mango. You can choose from their fruit smoothies, 100% fat free frozen dessert, low fat shakes and lower fat crispy and tasty fries. You can also tell that staff at Shakeaway Philippines if you have allergies. They will gladly recommend a drink for you!
For the Chocolate lover, we highly recommend the following:
DAVE – This milkshake has ferrero rocher & kinder bueno with crumbled cadbury flake on top
MIKE – With reese’s cups & milo topped with whipped cream
JOE – With banana & nutella with chocolate wafer stick on top
These are our top three “Chocolatey” favorites. Now if you love fruits, try SOL. Sol is a shake with mango & graham crackers with whipped cream on top. These are our top choices from Shakeaway Philippines.
We’re so excited to try out the other flavors and concoctions. We already have the VIP card. If you don’t have it, ask for it during your next visit.
