1. Vicky’s House, Coconut Grove
If you’re ever munching down on delicious burgers at LoKal, treat yourself to a milkshake literally right next door! Make your way through the phone booth-style time machine (just like Bill & Ted) and transport yourself to an adorable 1980s ice cream shop fully equipped with a wood-paneled kitchen, washing machine, and old school TV room to chill in. From Molly Ringwald and the Golden Girls to E.T., you’ll find huge specialty milkshakes loaded with sweets like Cap’n Crunch cereal, a Baby Ruth bar, a donut, or a shot of colada.
Surely, there are seasonal shakes on their rotating menu that don’t include throwbacks like their “Will you be my play 2?” red velvet milkshake topped with a cake for Valentine’s Day. Currently, Vicky’s is serving up sweet and tropical Bad Bunny milkshakes all verano (summer) long.

2. Bocas House, Doral
This Venezuelan-Peruvian joint offers a delicious menu of Latin American dishes, but make sure to save plenty of room for one of their jaw-dropping milkshakes. Made in-house, each shake comes in a large glass jar, is drizzled in syrup, and contains a baked good as a top layer. It comes with its own plate and spoons too, so that you can share or take your time with breaking down what is actually a couple of desserts in one. Their famous tres leches milkshake is made with Venezuelan chicha (a rice drink) and vanilla ice cream, topped with a waffle cone, and of course, a slice of tres leches cake drenched in condensed milk. If you can’t decide between chocolate and vanilla, there’s a cookies and cream milkshake which comes with Oreo cookie chunks, vanilla ice cream, and even a Nutella syringe!

Milkshakes are no different. Their outrageous Cookie Monster drink features cookies and cream ice cream blended with vanilla sauce, topped with whip cream, a blue glazed donut that looks like the Sesame Street character, a chocolate chip cookie, and the addition of a blue frosted cupcake. If that isn’t outrageous enough, even the mug comes drizzled in sweets! Take a look at the Sugar Factory’s Tie Dye Milkshake, which features Pop Rocks rainbow sprinkles, candy necklaces, and cotton candy on top of vanilla ice cream mixed with vanilla sauce. Yum!
