Bocas House, Coral Gables – USA

I don't usually like milkshakes and I blame my mum for that. When we were kids we had our medication with strawberry milkshake and since then I can't go near the stuff - and even the smell of the Mc Donalds ones makes me feel ill.

However, I specifically went to Bocas House for one of their Instagram famous milkshakes!

I went for the Golden Milkshake which was a chocolate milkshake with Nutella around the rim of the glass. This was to hold the big chunk of brownie in place, topped with vanilla ice cream and a chocolate filled dome. It comes with a small wooden hammer that is used to crack open the dome and allow chocolate to run all down the whole dessert.

It was such a fun experience and I love the idea - however, I got so ill while eating it.

The milkshake itself was too sugary & sweet! Mix that with chocolate brownie, chocolate sauce, nutella and melted chocolate - it was too much! I have a sweet tooth and love chocolate but it made me feel dizzy, sick, light headed and nauseous.

I would recommend this to anyone wanting to try something a little bit different and fun! But make sure you go with at least 3 other people to share it with! Otherwise it might seem like a waste of money. I asked for a box and brought home the brownie & chocolate dome as I couldn't finish it and I still feel sick today thinking about how bad it made me feel yesterday!

Anyway, it was fun to try but I will not be going back. That being said, the restaurant itself was super cool & trendy and the menu looked pretty good - so maybe I would come back for the savoury food. If I do, I will keep you updated, but for now, enjoy this video!
