Chocolate and cherry are a classic combination that really stand out in this milkshake. But what really sets this recipe apart is the buttermilk, which adds a delicate tang that enhances the cherry flavor. Add the cookies at the end and just stir it together if you like bigger chunks, or puree until smooth if you want to drink it through a straw.
