Deep-fried milkshake is latest temptation for batter lovers

The 'chipshake' is a deep-fried calorie bomb being hailed by its creator as the 'ultimate chippy dessert'

Deep-fried Mars Bars are old hat. Deep-fried Creme Eggs are so last Easter. What we need is… a deep-fried milkshake.

Yes, that's right. It's now possible to have your favourite shake with a large side of batter, thanks to Mister Eaters — the Preston takeaway known for good old-fashioned fish and chips as well as the occasional more bizarre concoction.

Mister Eaters proprietor John Clarkson decided he wanted a new deep-fry challenge and came up with the idea of using milk to create what he’s calling the “ultimate chippy dessert.”

"We have done a lot of things with burgers and fast food so we thought we would do something completely different,” he told the Daily Express. "Nobody has ever deep-fried milk like this, and certainly not milkshake, so I wanted to give it a go. You would expect it to melt or fall to bits but it doesn't and they're actually delicious.” 

The crazy snack contains 500 calories — but that’s nothing compared to the 2,000 calorie “MacDoner,” a Big Mac wrapped in doner meat in batter.

Clarkson insists that his “Chippy Chippy Shakes” have been going down a treat with customers. "I let [them] try them as samples and they have been coming back to have them as dessert,” he said. "Their first reaction was, 'what!?' They think I'm daft as a brush. They say I'm the Willy Wonka of the chip shop trade, which is quite funny. I've had this shop for a long time and it can be quite laborious so I like to do things to keep the job fun. Now not only can you drink milkshake, you can eat it too."

To make his “chipshake,” Clarkson freezes milkshake mixture — strawberry, chocolate or vanilla — in an ice cube tray, coats it in batter and then pops it into his deep-fat fryer. The finished product is a crisp, battered ball with a soft, warm milkshake centre.

Customers who prefer their milkshake without a crispy coating can go without the batter and purchase blocks of fried milkshake in the flavour of their choice.

Other deep-fried delicacies produced by 53-year-old Clarkson include deep-fried mince pies, Ferrero Rochers, Cadbury's Creme Eggs, beer, Christmas pudding, cheesecakes, tea cakes, Cornettos and a batter cone filled with mashed potato and a sausage instead of ice cream.
