Summer is absolutely made for these 4 milkshake spots
Shakes are the perfect summer drink that doubles as dessert. Here's where to get your fix.
July is made for milkshakes. Cold and sweet and — let’s face it — more fun than a smoothie, shakes are the perfect summer drink that doubles as dessert.

We love these milkshakes, made with Haagen-Dazs ice cream, at Smashburger. Our top picks are peanut butter, Oreo and salted caramel. Shakes are served in glass mugs that aren’t quite big enough to hold all of the shake, so you get the mug and the ice-cold stainless steel container and tall spoon used to make the shake.

Specialty shakes at Freckles are next-level good. Try the Golden Hurricane, a mix of vanilla ice cream blended with fresh blueberries and bananas. You can blend any number of toppings with vanilla or chocolate ice cream into a shake. Here’s another good one if you’re looking for something delicious: vanilla ice cream blended with pecans and toffee bits.

Burgers and fries at Fat Guy’s have reached Tulsa legend status. But the milkshakes are lesser known. More need to hear about these creamy shakes because they are great. These old-fashioned shakes in chocolate, vanilla or strawberry are just like you remember from childhood.

Braum’s thick milkshakes are so good, they’re sometimes a first-stop for those who’ve moved out of state and are craving the blend of sweet milk and ice cream. Classic chocolate and vanilla are excellent here. For something with a little more texture, try a cookie dough shake.
