National Chocolate Milkshake Day is on September 12th, and I could think of no one better to share their special milkshake recipe than the Grammy nominated musician turned chef, Kelis. The ‘Milkshake’ song may have dropped 14 years ago, but Kelis is still serving up the literal version in her kitchen, aptly named “My Milkshake”.

The tasty treat consists of Baileys Original Irish Cream, chocolate ice cream, ginger beer, candied ginger and cayenne pepper. You can grab the recipe below, or watch Kelis make it herself here.
