Cool down in the heatwave with a tasty milkshake

We all deserve a treat now and then, and what's more perfect at this time of year than a milkshake? There are so many American diners, dessert cafes, ice cream parlours and independent stores across the city that offer a whole range of these creamy drinks - from classic favourites like vanilla and chocolate, to more extravagant freakshakes, to boozy delights for adults with a sweet tooth. I've tracked down 6 of the best places to get milkshakes in London during the heatwave.

1. ShakeTastic
ShakeTastic is an award-winning milkshake bar with more combinations than you can imagine. Choose from over 100 flavours of freshly made-to-order shakes that include 'Cookie Monster', 'American Pie', 'The Artful Dodger', 'Wimbledon', 'Bees Knees', 'Lotus Love' and 'Insta Likes'. Aside from milkshakes, you can opt for a healthier fruit smoothie or juice. Unfortunately, the flagship store in Hamleys Toy Shop has permanently closed, but you can find ShakeTastic in Mill Hill and Pinner.

2. Art For Art's Sake
Venture to Art For Art's Sake in Muswell Hill for all the art supplies you could wish for and a fun range of milkshakes. This craft store serves as a café too, with hot dogs, avocado on toast and salad boxes on the menu. But those with a sweet tooth will want to check out the milkshakes. There are several milkshakes available at Art For Art's Sake, such as Mint Aero, Biscoff, Strawberries And Cream, White Chocolate and KitKat. They even do an avocado milkshake!

3. The Vurger Co
Vegans rejoice! The Vurger Co has several vegan-friendly milkshakes to pick from, including the 'Oreo Shake', which has a nut milk base blended with Oreo pieces and served with a generous helping of cream and crumbled Oreo. You can even add whisky or rum for that extra kick. With branches in Shoreditch and Canary Wharf, The Vurger Co is the perfect vegan burger joint to visit after exploring east London.

4. Miki's Paradise
Situated on Holloway Road, Miki's Paradise is one of the most photographed milkshake and juice bars in the city. It's run by a couple who hail from Mallorca and Istanbul. On the menu are sweet and savoury crepes, sourdough sandwiches, fruit juices, and of course milkshakes. All of the milkshakes at Miki's Paradise are served with whipped cream, sprinkles and a wafer roll. Their Mint Mania milkshake is a must.

5. Mamason's Dirty Ice Cream
If you want to try something completely unique, head over to Mamason's Dirty Ice Cream . This is a fave amongst Instagrammers due to its tropical-themed interior and colourful desserts. Mamason's has three stores – in Kentish Town, Chinatown and Westfield White City – and serves authentic Filipino ice cream. Their most famous flavour is Ube (purple yam), which is also available as a milkshake. The drink is topped with whipped cream and a wafer stick. Other milkshake flavours available are Black Buko (black coconut), Queso (cheese), Milo (chocolate malt), Guyabano (guanabana), and Calamansi (Filipino lime).

6. The Nook
Chocoholics will love The Nook , a tiny independent café in Hampstead. Since it opened in lockdown, The Nook has become hugely popular amongst Hampstead residents looking for a refreshment to keep them going whilst walking around the Heath. Along with hot drinks, The Nook also offers chocolatey milkshakes, which comprise of rich Belgian chocolate blended with vanilla milkshake. Their white chocolate milkshake is simply divine.
