Milkshakes are true American classics — Vanilla, Chocolate, and Strawberry. These traditional flavors have the power to bring us back to the 50’s diner days, but creative and decadent twists prove that milkshake makeovers can be just as satisfying.

It just might be the hottest time for us here on the Emerald Coast, so we decided to put together a list of the best shakes to help you cool down while you shop at Destin Commons. I bet you didn’t know you can find so many delectable options here, but boy are you in for a treat!


Oh yes, you read correctly! Just imagine a delicious truffle blended into your shake! Godiva’s Trufflelata tops our chart for their sheer creativity at tantalizing our taste buds. I didn’t think there was any think more satisfying than a perfectly confected truffle, but I stand corrected. A truffle filled shake is definitely on our must-try list!


If you are the more traditional type and prefer a classic diner milkshake, then you’ll want to stop into Johnny Rockets and have one of their Shakes or Malts. This kids will love it too since they have loads of fun concoctions for the whole family to try.


I bet you didn’t know that Smashburger blends Haagen-Dazs milkshakes! With mouthwatering flavors like Nutterbutter and Salted Caramel, these milkshakes are the perfect complement to one of their show-stopping burgers and accompanying Smash Fries.


Not only do you have to decide which sandwich creation you want to make, but you can also customize your milkshake too! Sure they have the traditional favorites like Oreo and Strawberry, but don’t let that stop you from really getting creative and sending your taste buds to cloud 9.


Okay, okay! We know these aren’t milkshakes, but hey- different strokes for different folks! We need to make sure we offer a cool, blended, and healthier option for those who are watching their waistlines. Just imagine – a yummy treat that offers vitamins, antioxidants, and even protein!
