There is one thing the UK is lacking. Iced Chocolate. You get these everywhere back in Australia, all the cafes and restaurants do them, and they're the easiest and tastiest drink ever.
All you need:
- A big glass
- Chocolate sauce
- Ice Cubes
- Vanilla or chocolate ice-cream
- Whipped cream
- Dusting chocolate
Right, start by squeezing a load of chocolate sauce around the inside of the glass, and make sure to put a good sized dollop at the bottom of the glass. Then, put a few ice cubes in (but not too many - no one likes a drink full of ice!). After the ice get a nice big scoop of ice-cream (either vanilla or choc), drop it into the glass, then top up with the milk. Finally, swirl a load of whipped cream on top (you know the fuzzy stuff you get in a can), and finish with dusting chocolate powder onto the top. If you want it really chocolatey, stick a long spoon in and swirl together the milk and all of that chocolate sauce on the bottom.
Easy. Takes less than a minute, and you'll have an incredibly tasty and satisfying drink that's suitable all year round, especially if you're like me and not a huge fan of hot drinks.
