Yes, the good thing is that this chocolate mikshake is pretty easy to make even without using a blender (though I recommend using a blender to make work more easier and perfect).
While the milkshake made with blender turns out to be more on the creamier side, you can whip up the milkshake using a spoon or whisk and just stirring all the ingredients together in a jar or bowl, until the ingredients are all well combined!
You may also use an electric mixer or hand blender instead.

If you want to serve the milkshake sometime later, refrigerate the milkshake (for few hours) and stir well just before serving.
If you want to store this milkshake for longer time (for few days), you may freeze the milkshake in ice cube trays and store in the freezer.
Just before serving the milkshake, you can easily blend the ice cubes in a good quality blender!
Can you make vegan chocolate milkshake?
To make vegan chocolate milkshake, just replace all dairy based ingredients with plant based options that you like.
For example, you can use vegan chocolate ice cream and plant based milk & cream options like almond milk or cashew milk, cashew cream (or you may skip the cream), coconut milk, oat milk etc.
Just make sure to choose the plant based milk that you like the most and also your favorite brand of vegan chocolate ice cream to make vegan milkshake!
