In recent months, over-the-top milkshakes have been popping up all over Singapore and have taken over our Instagram feeds. These trending desserts are sinfully stacked with cake chunks, a variety of wafers and biscuits, and topped off with even more sweet treats.
We scoured the island in search of these over-the-top desserts and here’s our list of the popular OTT milkshakes in Singapore.
Cake Spade prides itself for being a baking specialist that strictly uses the best and freshest ingredients. A slice of cake is included in every of its over-the-top milkshake, thus referring to it as a ‘cakeshake’ instead.

Unicone cakeshake (SGD14.90)
One of the best sellers at Cake Spade is undoubtedly the Unicone Cakeshake. It is topped with a slice of red velvet cake, variety of wafers, dashed w rainbow sprinkles to resemble a fairy like waterfall and a cone of bright pink cotton candy.
Matcha Adzuki Cakeshake (SGD 16.90)
Probably the only matcha-infused milkshake/cakeshake in Singapore right now, the quality of this cakeshake, and its combination of matcha adzuki beans, digestive biscuit and green tea cake is an excellent blend. This cakeshake is highly recommended for matcha dessert-seeking enthusiasts and is also the cakeshake from cakespade that was highly raved by renowned food blogger Seth Lui.
One of the pioneers responsible for the over-the-top milkshakes trend in Singapore, the Benjamin Browns curated and introduced 4 flavours which took Instagram by storm. The flavours includes Coffee Avocado, Nutella Banana, Old School Vanilla and Caramel Crunch. Recently it added more creations to its list of milkshakes – including flavours like Peanut and Jelly, Tim Tam and Thai Milk Tea.
The base of every shake concocted is made of vanilla bean ice cream that is imported from New Zealand.

Nutella Banana Milkshake (SGD $16)
A combination favored by many, the Nutella Banana Milkshake from Benjamin Browns is topped with a wedge of Nutella cake, slices of bananas, whip cream, wafers, biscuits and pretzel stuck to the side with Nutella.
Coffee Avocado Milkshake (SGD $16)
The vanilla bean ice cream base is infused with coffee and chunks of avocado. On the top of the milkshake are layers of freshly sliced avocado, chocolate biscuits, sugar dusted crackers, wafers, a wedge of coffee cake and whipped cream sandwiched between each layers with coffee powder sprinkled over the concoction.
The Lab SG (SGD $12)
The Lab SG is a halal-certified cafe that is widely known for it’s “breaking bad” themed ambience. The food is centered around a laboratory theme, so it’s no surprise that it introduced the over-the-top milkshakes into its repertoire of ‘lab’-centric concoctions.
The 2 flavours introduced includes the Nutella Brownie Milkshake and the Strawberry Cheesecake milkshake. The Lab SG offers the most affordable milkshake from the list but it lacks the over-the-top presentation compared to it’s other counterparts.
