Mighty Milkshake Challenge: Black Milk

Kelis might have brought all the boys to the yard with her milkshake, but Black Milk have crowds forming all over Manchester, and now London!

Black Milk is an iconic cereal and dessert cafe from Manchester, owned by co-founders Oliver Taylor and Andy Young. Famous for their Freakshakes (a freakishly big milkshake) and other tasty treats, Black Milk has put Manchester’s breakfast scene on the food map.

Black Milk invited members of the ENTERTAINER team to take on their signature Freakshake challenge. We were served up a mighty milkshake cocktail of Oreos: an Oreo and Milkyway milkshake towered with Oreo cheesecake, chocolate sauce and vanilla cream – yum!

What’s on the menu?

One peek at their Instagram page will give you an insight into Black Milk’s sugar-coated kingdom of cakes and shakes.

Vegan and dairy free options are on the menu alongside desserts like millionaires shortbread, Oreo cheesecake and homemade fudge brownies.

Venue Hire

Black Milk makes an excellent networking space, too: suitable for up to 40 theatre style and is perfect for morning seminars, screening, meetings and workshops

Outside catering

If you’re throwing a quirky event, hosting a staff party or opening a new store, hire the folks at Black Milk to serve up some mouthwatering milkshakes.

Black Milk is now open in London!

What’s more, you can now get your shake on at the Black Milk store (part of Fiorucci) on the corner of Brewer Street in Soho.
