Chocolate and Espresso Milkshake

Chocolatier’s Tip

You can also use hazelnut milk if you prefer. Our 85%, 90% and 99% are also vegan-friendly so you can increase the cocoa percentage and enjoy a more intense chocolate flavour. If making this recipe for someone following a gluten free diet, always check the manufacturer's label to ensure your ingredients are free from gluten.
