It’s been 14 long years since Kelis first boasted about her milkshake: namely, the fact that it brought all the boys to the yard and that those boys all agreed it was a better milkshake than yours.
It’s a weird and audacious brag in any case, but the song has always frustrated me for the fact that Kelis never really elaborates much further than that. Like, what’s in the milkshake? Why is it so good? Are we even talking about a dairy-based beverage here?
Well the Grammy-nominated songstress has finally put her money where her mouth is and coughed up the recipe to her now world-famous shake. And it turns out it’s a bit of a boozer.
Kelis – who is also a trained chef and a graduate at hospitality institution Le Cordon Bleu – shared the ingredients and preparation method for ‘My Milkshake’ over the weekend. Cop a squizz below.
