Salted Caramel Shake, Smashburger

Salted caramel is a gourmet combination that has thankfully been translated to everyday dining. Smashburger’s version is made to order, starting with a base of vanilla Häagen-Dazs ice cream and milk. Buttery caramel and a sprinkle of sea salt are then mixed in to impart a great balance of creamy, sweet and salty.
