Summertime Sonic Shakes

One of my favorite things to do during the summer is to head to Sonic in the evening. They normally have half-priced shakes and ice cream during the summer months. It’s fun to try new varieties at half of the regular price. The coconut cream pie shake is in my top favorite Sonic drinks. Keep reading for my favorite five Sonic Drinks!

About Sonic Drive-In

Sonic is an American drive-thru chain that became popular because of its carhops on skates. You drive into a stall, order, and then a carhop delivers your food on roller skates! It’s a true talent to deliver a tray of food on skates and the company holds a competition each year to find the best skater in the organization.

Besides milkshakes and skating carhops, Sonic also carries a variety of burgers, hot dogs, french fries, slushies, and a full breakfast menu. The restaurant chain started in 1953 in a small town in Oklahoma. They are now one of the largest fast-food chains and have locations in 45 of the 50 states.

As I mentioned, I am a big fan of the coconut cream pie milkshake and it is super easy to recreate at home. For a fraction of the cost, you can be sipping a cool drink in the comfort of your own home!

    Love your site! This Sonic recipe looks sensational. Gonna try it this weekend! Do I buy coconut cream in the grocery store?

        Hi everyone, I think she means the cream of coconut you buy to make pina coladas with. It’s in a can at most grocery stores where the wine/beer/mixed drinks are. Also most larger liquor stores carry it. Coco Lopez is the brand that’s sold where I live.

      • Marlene

        Coconut milk has the liquid consistency of cow’s milk and is made from simmering one part shredded coconut in one part water. Coconut milk is the basis of most Thai curries.

        Coconut cream is much thicker and richer. It is made from simmering four parts shredded coconut in one part water. The cream that rises to the top of a can of coconut milk is also considered coconut cream.

        Cream of coconut is a sweetened version of coconut cream, and is often used for desserts and mixed drinks. Because of the added sugar, it is usually not interchangeable with coconut cream. It also contains other additives.

        It is usually located in the Asian section of grocery stores.
