Freakshakes Are Taking Over The World

The freakshakes phenomenon started earlier in 2015 when Canberra-based cafe Patissez first posted photos of over-filled milkshakes oozing chocolate, pretzels, peanut butter, and caramel. The photo quickly spread around the internet and people around the world went crazy. People have been lining up outside this cafe and now this trend is spreading across the world.

Bombay has also obviously caught up on this crazy trend. Cafes and restaurants across the city are experimenting with them. Pretzels, marshmallows, ganache, Nutella, chocolate chips, donuts, fresh fruits, caramel - you name it and its there in your freak shakes. Its crazy, awesome, heavenly, orgasmic, and any other adjective that you can think of. If you are a calorie snob, please look somewhere else this one has ridiculous amounts of em.

It's so delish that we had to take a crack at it in our kitchens. Here are a few recipes for you to try your hand at these-
