    Some favorite desserts are turned into milkshakes with chocolate cherry buttermilk shake (center) and a raspberry Key lime cheesecake shakes.

Chocolate and cherry are a classic combination that really stand out in this milkshake. But what really sets this recipe apart is the buttermilk, which adds a delicate tang that really enhances the cherry flavor.
