The real era of shakes’ splendor falls in the 1950s. It was then that they entered the canon of American fast-food, and places serving burgers, fries and just milkshakes could be found on every corner. Sweet sheikhs, pastel interiors and pin-up girls smiling from posters are a part of American pop culture that we know well. There is a reason in Pulp Fiction, John Travolta and Uma Thurman talk about the qualities of Five Dollar Milkshake in a retro bar from the 50s.
Currently, the style of the 1950s is also experiencing a small renaissance in cinema or series. The proof of this is even the meeting place of the main characters of the Riverdale series – Pop’s Chock’lit Shoppe.

Milkshakes give you a lot of fun. You can make them from any fruit or sweets. The only thing you have to do is proportion. Too much milk will make the shake too liquid, while too much fruit will make it too thick and not be able to drink through a straw. If you do not want to add ice cream to your shake, you can add cream – onan will also make the constitution delicate and creamy. But remember to keep it chilled. If you do not have a blender, you can use a mixer, but then remember not to add highly frozen fruit or ice cubes – the mixer will not crush them and will only cause a mess in the kitchen. If you want the dessert to be cold use ice cream or just put it in the fridge before serving.
