With the warm weather finally beginning to make an appearance this week, it’s time to celebrate with some seriously mouth-watering, refreshing, sin-laden milkshakes.
Check out our top 7 places in Belfast to go for seriously appetizing milkshakes.
Where else in Belfast do you recommend?! We’d love as many suggestions as possible so we can go out and try them for ourselves – and add even more to the list!
207 Lisburn Road – Website
Famed for its amazing customised Hippy Shakes – you’ll be hard put to find a flavour combination Jenz will not be able to transform into a calorific cascade of heaven in a glass.
Indeed, there are so many flavours, they don’t all fit onto the board. But this’ll give you an idea…
Specials range from such amazingly eclectic pairings as the Curly Wurly & Jelly Tots with Mallows & Cream; Boost & Nutella with Cream & Flake; and Crunchie & Peanut Butter with mallows and cream. To name just a few…
With a staggering six scoops of ice-cream and virtually any topping you can dream of transformed into one amazing sugaholic’s dream – it’s no wonder Jenz is famed for serving up some of the best shakes in Belfast!

Desserts with a difference, we’ve been reliably informed from numerous sources that these Freak Jars are every chocoholic’s dream come true. The Chocolate Brownie contains vanilla & chocolate ice cream with chocolate syrup, brownie pieces mixed throughout, whipped cream and a brownie on top with chocolate shavings! (Yes, really).
Whilst the Mint Aero boasts chocolate & mint ice cream with chocolate syrup and pieces of Mint Aero mixed throughout. This is topped off with whipped cream and (more!) Mint Aero.
Meanwhile, the guys over at Vandal make sure they stay topical with their shakes! Just check out last week’s special Pride Shake Pic N Mix Milkyway Freak Jar. It featured Strawberry & Marshmallow ice cream, milky way chocolate, skittles and pic n mix sweets.
3. Maggie Mays
Malone Road and Botanic Avenue – Website
Where do we begin when attempting to describe the huge range of milkshakes on offer from Maggie Mays?!
For £2.45 you can get Maggies Shakes in a range of flavours from your standard Strawberry to Chocolate to Caramel – you can even try bolder flavours like Cinnamon and Marmalade.
Alternatively, Special Shakes ranging from Snickers; Rasperry Ruffle; Nutella; Creme Egg; Jammie Dodger and Chocolate Fudge Brownie – are just some of the more intricate mouth-watering options available.
Not to mention, all of the above are topped with marshmallows and sauce!
We particularly love the ‘Chewy One’ – featuring Diam Bar, toffee crisp and toffee sauce – or if your’re suffering we suggest the hangover busting Hair of the Dog – with Bailey’s, flake, chocolate sauce and whipped cream for £4.95.
With so many more options, check out the menu here – or even better – call in and try one. We seriously recommend.
