For those looking for an excuse to indulge, September 12 is National Chocolate Milkshake Day. And while a chocolate milkshake crawl might send you into a sugar coma, Palm Beach County is home to several locally owned spots that can satisfy your sweet tooth.
For a classic diner experience, head to Green’s Pharmacy on Palm Beach or Howley’s in West Palm Beach, where you can augment your milkshake with bananas or Oreos. With locations in Delray Beach and Boca Raton, Proper Ice Cream can craft a shake using its Deep Chocolate flavor, made from Valrhona Cocoa Powder and 5150 Chocolate.
Up in Tequesta, swing by Palm Beach Ice Cream, which has been around since 1985 and boasts a decadent Double Chocolate ice cream. Since opening its first spot in West Palm in 1999, Sloan’s Ice Cream has grown to include locations in Delray, Boca, and beyond. Any Sloan’s flavor can be turned into a milkshake, but we recommend keeping it classic with Sloan’s Chocolate, Dad’s Milk Chocolate (also available as the Vegan Chocolate Coconut), or the Luscious Sloan’s Dark speckled with brownies, pecans, almonds, peanuts, toffee, and caramel.
