Halloween is one of the most anticipated nights of the year for kids and adults alike.

And these Halloween milkshakes are such a fun and unique way to celebrate. 

Typically, candy and costumes get all the attention. But these tasty treats just might steal the show this year.

They’re cool, creamy, and totally spookylicious. 

20+ Spooktacular Halloween Milkshakes & Recipe Ideas

1. Hocus Pocus Halloween Milkshake

Are you a Hocus Pocus fanatic like me? If so, you’ve likely always been fascinated by Winnie’s giant cauldron and its boiling green potion.

Sure, it allows the witches to suck the souls out of the children of Salem, but… weren’t you just a wee bit tempted to try it anyway?

I always was! 

That’s what makes this gooey green milkshake so much fun. And don’t worry, you won’t have to give up a bit of thine own tongue to make it. 

You’ll just need some milk, lime sherbet, and a few other things for decorating. It’s easy to make and totally delicious.

2. Eye of Toad Halloween Milkshake

In the mood for something more creepy than cute? No problem! Check out this recipe for the eye of toad* milkshake. 

It looks gruesome but tastes like yummy cookies and cream. You can have it ready in about 5 minutes, and even the eyeball is edible! 

(*Disclaimer: No toads were harmed in the making of this milkshake.)

3. Boo-Nilla Ghost Milkshakes

If you’re more of a plain vanilla person, that’s okay, too.

These boo-nilla milkshakes have all the thick, creamy sweetness of any vanilla shake. 

The only differences come in how you decorate the glass and the shake.

Add crushed cookies around the rim and draw a face on the glass. Instant Ghosties! 

4. Halloween Mint Milkshakes

These gorgeous green shakes look similar to the Hocus Pocus ones above. Their flavor, though, is entirely different. 

These are like a richer, mintier version of McDonald’s Shamrock Shakes.

They’re fresh and refreshing, and their creepy color makes them perfect for Halloween. 

5. Halloween Matcha Milkshakes

Ah, matcha milkshakes. Talk about a matcha made in heaven. (See what I did there?)

Seriously, though, these milkshakes are awesome. They’re chocolatey, sweet but not too sweet, and look fantastic. 

Take the time to make the swirls and add the green whipped topping. Doing so makes the drink so much more festive and fun. 

6. Melted Witch Halloween Milkshake

These are less adorable and more insanely gross. But again, that’s what makes them so Halloween-appropriate. 

And despite the gooky appearance, they taste phenomenal. (Think mint chocolate chip, only sweeter and more decadent.) 

The crazy witches’ fingers are candy-coated pretzel rods. And the candy eyeballs are, well, candy!

It may look like an outrageous mix of body parts, but it’s 100% edible.

7. Easy Frankenstein Halloween Milkshakes

Want something simple that’s still perfect for your Halloween party? Try these four-ingredient Frankenstein milkshakes. 

You’ll need mint chip ice cream, milk, food coloring, and dark chocolate wafers. (Though any light-colored ice cream would work.) 

Then, decorate your glass. It doesn’t get much simpler than that.

8. Bloody Halloween Milkshakes

These shakes are ideal if you’re looking for a bloody good time. 

Their sweet and simple vanilla flavor is an absolute crowd-pleaser. And all they need is a bit of food coloring to make them look Halloweeny. 

Easy peasy!

9. Halloween Monster Freak Shakes

Milkshakes loaded with cakes, candy, etc., are becoming increasingly popular.

And milkshake bars specializing in these over-the-top shakes are popping up everywhere. 

Unfortunately, those elaborate milkshakes typically come with exorbitant price tags, too. So, save your money and make your own at home! 

These are incredible for any occasion – not just Halloween.

After all, who doesn’t love an indulgent treat with more sugar than the body can possibly handle?

10. Halloween Dirt Shake

You’ve heard of a dirt cake, right? Well, this milkshake is similar, only with ice cream instead of cake.

It’s a simple chocolate milkshake topped with Oreos and gummy worms.

The crushed Oreos in the shake also give it flavor and a nice dirt-like appearance.

11. Graveyard Halloween Milkshake

We’ve all seen at least one movie with a zombie (or vampire) hand shooting out from the grave.

Well, this milkshake turns that scene into a tasty treat. 

Each one features a skeletal candy hand breaking through a pile of wormy dirt. Doesn’t sound very appetizing, huh?

Luckily, it tastes much better than it sounds. 

As long as you enjoy Neapolitan shakes with chocolate cookies, you’ll dig it. 

12. Halloween Ghost Milkshakes

Here’s another recipe for whipped cream-topped vanilla milkshakes.

They’re easy to make and utterly scrumptious. Plus, they require only four ingredients.

That’s hard to beat. 

13. Halloween Party Witches Potion Shakes

These purple and orange shakes are magically spooky. They look more like a magical potion from Harry Potter than a milkshake.

They’re also bright, fruity, and more smoothie-like than ice cream-like.

Each one is loaded with orange sherbet and orange juice, plus frozen blueberries and blackberries.

Mix all that with a vanilla ice cream base, and you’ve got something the whole family will love.

14. Halloween Chocolate Milkshakes

If spooktacular decorating isn’t your thing, that’s okay. You can whip up your favorite milkshake and just add festive sprinkles.

That’s all this recipe does. It takes your everyday chocolate shake and jazzes it up with Halloween sprinkles.

And you could just as easily use Valentine’s Day or Christmas sprinkles! 

15. Easy Pumpkin Milkshakes in Spooky Glasses

There’s more to these pumpkin milkshakes than jack-o-lantern faces on glasses. (Though, those faces go a long way towards making these awesome.) 

Still, the shakes themselves are full of pumpkiny goodness.

You’ll make them with pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice. So they’re an easy fall favorite, even without the faces. 

16. Cookie Monster Freak Shakes

It should be no surprise that Halloween is Cookie Monster’s favorite holiday. What other holiday stuffs you so full of candy, chocolate, and cookies? 

That’s why these Cookie Monster shakes are the ideal Halloween treat.

You’ll love their bright blue hue and their cutesy monster appearance. 

And don’t panic. These look like something you’d buy from a five-star milkshake bar, but they aren’t hard to make.

You don’t need any special skills, either. 

17. Chocolate Chip Monster Milkshake

Can you ever have too many recipes for over-the-top, super indulgent milkshakes? I don’t think so.

So here’s another one!

You can leave off most of the garnishes for something more subdued if you like. But for Halloween, I say go all out!

It’s a flawless mix of chocolate and vanilla, even without all the toppings. So give it a try the next time you don’t want to choose between two classics.

18. Monster Candy Milkshake

This one may not look as Halloweeny as others on this list.

But once you suck up a few candy corn pieces and chunks of chocolate, you’ll get it.

It may not look festive, but it’s a great way to use extra Halloween candy. Plus, it’s every chocoholic’s dream come true. 

19. Peanut Butter Chocolate Freak Shake

Ice cream, chocolate syrup, peanut butter, candy, peanuts, Nutter Butters, Reese’s cups. 

Nope. That’s not a list of desserts for you to choose from. It’s everything you’ll find in this one single milkshake.

Oh yeah, it’s a shot of sugar straight to the veins. It sure is good, though! 

20. Candy Corn Milkshakes

Don’t worry, Candy Corn Haters; these milkshakes don’t taste like candy corn. (Sorry, Candy Corn Lovers! I know; it bums me out, too.) 

Instead, this drink is a simple vanilla shake creatively dyed with food coloring.

It may look like oversized candy corn in a glass, but its taste is wholly vanilla.

21. Vampire Apple Pie Milkshakes

If one bloody milkshake wasn’t enough, here’s a second option to try. And this one has a delectable apple pie flavor.

It combines apples, cinnamon, brown sugar, and more for a sweet, fruity, impossible-to-resist taste that also looks incredibly rad.

It’s the perfect choice for any Halloween party. Or a party for a whole lot of medical professionals. 

22. Easy Twix Milkshake

Have a few extra Twix bars in the bottom of your candy bag? (Probably not. After all, what kind of lunatic leaves Twix bars uneaten?!) 

If you do, first of all, I’m shocked. And second of all, you can use them to make this tasty chocolate- and caramel-infused milkshake.

It tastes just like a liquified Twix, and I am here for it. If you’re a Twix lover, you will be, too. 

23. Ghostly Freakyshake

Creamy vanilla shake with chocolate and caramel in a funky, spooky glass? Yes, please!

The trick to these adorable shakes is in the decor. So, you’ll need to find Halloweeny sprinkles and little edible ghosts.

Of course, it doesn’t have to be ghosts! But you can find those in most stores when the holiday rolls around.
