How to make your own Freakshow Shakes at home

0atissez in Canberra has given the internet a sugar rush with Freakshow Shakes - you'll never look at a milkshake the same again.

A Freakshow Shake is a milkshake of outstanding proportions. To save you hopping a plane to try one for yourself, here are two copycat recipes for Freakshakes you can make at home.

Nutella & Salty Pretzel


  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Milk
  • Nutella
  • Whipped cream
  • Pretzels
  • Pretzel dust (put pretzels in a bag and crush).


  1. Add milk, ice cream, and one very large spoonful of Nutella to your blender or food processor and blend.
  2. Take a large spoonful of Nutella and smear the inside of a glass.
  3. Take another large spoonful and line the exterior rim of the glass. Be very generous with the Nutella here.
  4. Line the exterior of the glass with crushed pretzels (they’ll stick to the Nutella).
  5. Pour shake into the glass.
  6. Top with whipped cream – lots of whipped cream.
  7. Stick whole pretzels into the whipped cream and top with Nutella.
  8. Sprinkle pretzel dust all over the shake.
  9. Take a photo of it for Instagram.
  10. Enjoy.

Salted Caramel Freakshake


  • Caramel ice cream (or vanilla ice cream with caramel in it)
  • Milk
  • Caramel sauce
  • Whipped cream
  • Something sweet to stick in the whipped cream (like caramel-filled chocolates)


  1. Add ice cream and milk to your blender or food processor. Blend.
  2. Line the inside of a large glass with as much caramel sauce as you like.
  3. Pour shake into glass.
  4. Add a ridiculous quantity of whipped cream on top.
  5. Stick sweet treats in the whipped cream.
  6. Drizzle the entire thing with caramel sauce – as much as you like.
  7. Take a photo of it for Instagram.
  8. Enjoy.
