In the summer of 2003, Kelis introduced us to her Milkshake (song), which famously brought all the boys to the yard. The r&b songstress has kept her milkshake relatively secret for 14 years, but she finally came out with an official recipe after teaming up with Baileys.
What exactly is it that makes her milkshake better than yours? Maybe the Baileys, ginger beer, or chocolate ice cream? We don’t know the science behind what keeps attracting these boys to her yard, but those are the three main ingredients in her shake, and are willing to bet one of them is the reason.
Kelis, while mostly known for her music, is actually a chef who studied at Le Cordon Bleu, so she knows her way around the kitchen, certainly adding even more credibility to her milkshake. In 2015, she even released a memoir-style cookbook called My Life on a Plate: Recipes From Around The World. The more we dig in, the more it starts making sense why her milkshake is one to be universally desired.
With National Chocolate Milkshake Day approaching this Sept. 12, it only makes sense that we try to make the most popular milkshake in music history.
