Ultimate Freakshake Recipe with Northern Bloc

A few weeks ago, the guys over at Northern Bloc got in touch asking if I could create a recipe with their ice cream. If you haven’t tried Northern Bloc yet, you need to add it to your list because HOLY CRAP GUYS. Best ice cream in the world. Even better than Ben & Jerry’s. Obviously, my mind first went to milkshakes. Because what’s better than delicious ice cream? Delicious ice cream you can drink.

But then I figured milkshakes were a little boring, and I remembered the incredible freakshakes we had in Leeds a few weeks ago. And here we are!

Freakshakes are super easy to make because they’re basically just milkshakes with loads of crap on them to make them even more delicious. But, just in case, here’s the recipes for the two I’ve made.

And sorry not sorry for all the photos in this post. I couldn’t choose. Can you blame me?? V proud.

    Those freakshakes look amazing! I’ve always been intrigued by them, but it honestly never occurred to me that I could make them myself – they seem too complicated. But I’m now definitely going to be trying these recipes asap, even though the weather’s cooled down a whole lot. They just look too delicious to pass up.
