Dessert Duos

Lola’s Café, New Paltz 

What’s better than a milkshake? A dessert-themed milkshake with said dessert on top, of course. At Lola’s Café, you can get double the fun, all while soaking up the sun on their outdoor patio. We recommend the blueberry cheesecake, the cinnamon roll, the s’mores, and the churro shakes. Don’t forget the cherry on top! 


Favorable and Flavorful

Twisted Soul, Poughkeepsie

The best bevvies in the biz, Twisted Soul starts their milkshakes with a vanilla base before heightening the flavors. Smoked strawberries, popcorn with dulce de leche, sweet potatoes with peanuts, or toasted marshmallows with dulce de leche are the best palate-pleasing flavors here for the adventurous eater. We like to bring three other friends so we can bask in all four milkshakes at once.



Bellvale Farms Creamery, Warwick

Hyper-local milkshakes are now a part of the farm-to-table movement. Every ice cream at Bellvale is made with their farm-fresh dairy, and any flavor — like pumpkin, maple cinnamon, or cheesecake — can be turned into a milkshake. Sip on your shake while enjoying their outdoor patio that overlooks a deep, green valley and cow pastures for miles. Not only good for the earth, Bellvale is good for the soul, too.
