Where to find Joburg’s craziest milkshakes

When you’re in the milkshake mood, sometimes you need to go all out. This list features Jozi’s craziest milkshakes, made and topped to impress.

Craft (Parkhurst)
Special shakes are popular at Craft and two stand out. The Oh Shake, made with banana and Nutella, is topped with plenty of thick peanut butter fudge. The other is the Turkish Delight, which comes topped with strawberry wafers and, of course, Turkish delight. Old favourites include the Candy Carnival (which contains heart candy), the Chocolate Overload and the Salted Caramel Delight. The latter combines crème brûlée with caramel chocolate, cheesecake and a lashing of salted caramel sauce.

Kota Joe Roadhouse (Edenvale and Boksburg)
Kota Joe has 29 varieties of milkshakes, amongst which are Horlicks and fudge, zoo biscuit, Toblerone, Oreo and peanut butter, Oreo and Ferrero Rocher, Coco Pops, and custard and jelly. Slurping them at a roadhouse somehow makes these milkshakes even better.

Protea Hotel Fire & Ice (Melrose Arch)
With 36 milkshake flavours, the milkshake bar at the Protea Hotel Fire & Ice by Marriott attracts plenty of in-house and walk-in customers alike. The Berry Buzz, made with fresh strawberries, cream and a secret thick and delicious puree mixture – for an extra dose of sweetness – is highly recommended, being one of the top customer favourites at the swanky establishment.

Roast Café (Melrose Arch)
If you’re feeling nostalgic for something more classic, try Roast Café’s super chocolatey or strawberry milkshakes. They’re thick, rich and don’t skimp on the good stuff. The chocolate milkshake is made with chocolate ice cream and double chocolate sauce, and the strawberry milkshake is made with real strawberries and vanilla ice-cream – all are finished off with fresh cream, sprinkles and a cherry on top.

RocoMama’s (nationwide)
Burgers and milkshakes go together like vanilla and cream. While RocoMamas has a number of crazy delicious creations from which to choose, their Slow Death by Chocolate freak shake is the most popular among customers – with good reason. It’s a milkshake filled with almost everything that goes together with chocolate: whipped cream, chocolate sauce, bits of chocolate and Oreo. Put together and dusted with, well, more chocolate, it’s a feast for the eyes and the taste buds.

Walnut Grove (Sandton)
Walnut Grove’s new shakes are intense in taste and decorous in presentation. Fun flavours include the snowball shake, which is made with white chocolate and coconut blended with creamy vanilla gelato and topped with Raffaelo chocolate. The milk tart flavour is made with cinnamon, biscuit and condensed milk blended with creamy vanilla gelato.

XO Patisserie (Melville)
Remember XO Patisserie’s soaring freak shakes? You can always rely on this 27 Boxes patisserie to be out there with food trends, especially when it comes to their delicious cronuts. Just one favourite is those that come with straws plunging straight through the decadent cronut centres – such as with XO’s freak shakes, which are available in flavours like peanut butter, Peppermint Crisp and vanilla choc-chip.
