You’ve been living under a rock if you haven’t heard of Freakshakes. They’re indulgent milkshakes topped with ice cream and baked goods. Molly Bakes has recently opened a cafe in Dalston. As far as I’m aware they’re the only place in London serving them so Scott and I just had to try them out this weekend.
We huddled around a small table and ordered ourselves two cups of coffee, a chocolate freakshake for me, and a peanut butter one for him. The milkshakes are served in mason jars, topped with whipped cream, icecream, baked goods and a toasted marshmallow, and are well worth the £7 price tag. They come in four favours – chocolate, caramel, peanut butter and raspberry. If these sound like too much to handle they also have a range of cakes, cookies and brownies to choose from.
The rim of mine was covered with chocolate spread with mini chocolate balls stuck to it. It was then filled with chocolate milkshake and then icecream and whipped cream was piled on the top. Next came a chocolate brownie and the toasted marshmallow, and then it was drizzled with chocolate sauce. Scott’s was topped with a peanut butter cookie icecream sandwich instead of a brownie, and they were both amazing.
I’m really glad the bitterness of the chocolate came through with mine as I haven’t got the biggest sweet tooth – Scott had to finish mine off as it was way to big for me. If you’re going to have a cheat meal this is definitely the place to come to, just be prepared for a massive sugar rush.
