This Milkshake Trail Through New Orleans Is Perfect For A Summer Day Trip
During the summer months, New Orleanians are always on the look out for ways to cool down. Nothing cools you down faster than a delicious milkshake, and we’ve got the scoop (pun intended) on the best milkshakes in New Orleans, and this trail will lead the way.
1. Shake Therapy
Shake Therapy takes milkshakes to new levels, and it’s an absolute must-stop on this milkshake trail. Their craft milkshakes are one of a kind, and easily a meal of their own. You’ll build your shake from the bottom up, adding all your favorite toppings, syrups, and more to create a one of a kind milkshake that will satisfy your sweet tooth.

2. Frey Smoked Meat Co.
They may be known for their finger-licking-good BBQ, but the hidden gem at this Mid-City eatery is definitely the milkshakes. They’re always featuring new seasonal shakes to try, like the strawberry shortcake shake pictured above, but you can’t go wrong with one of their staples like cookie monster or Nutella Reese’s shakes.
Address: 4141 Bienville Street, New Orleans, LA, 70119
Situated in historic Jackson Square, a trip to Stanley’s is a must for any New Orleanian. Their brunches are legendary, and nothing kicks up brunch a few levels more than a boozy milkshake. Treat yourself to a white Russian milkshake or an Abita root beer bourbon float for a truly special treat.
Address: 547 Saint Ann Street, New Orleans, LA, 70116
4. Company Burger
For a more traditional milkshake, head on over to Company Burger. Choose from your standard flavors like chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry and prepare to have your taste buds blown away. And you know what goes great with a milkshake? One of their award winning burgers.

5. Creole Creamery
A trip to Creole Creamery has been a time honored tradition for many New Orleanians.
