“Shake it Off” in Dolcelatte

Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off 🎀🎡🎢

Taylor Swift is so true when she said that it’s time to shake it off. Shake it off means to get rid of something, to move on or to forget about someone or any bad memories we had. Now how can we do it? Prayers, support from friends/family and by eating a good comfort food from Dolcelatte. As all of you know, we love Dolcelatte (see here). We even had a bad Mother’s Day experience from a restaurant before but we ended the day happily because of Dolcelatte (goΒ here). Now we’ll love them even more because of their new croughnut milkshakes.

For the record, I am not a fan of milkshakes. Simply because I am lactose intolerant; but this Banana Peanut Butter Milkshake didn’t hurt my tummy at all. It has a mild sweet taste of banana, peanut butter and milk in one. It is now my official favorite drink. I know a lot of people who love drinking coffee to have energy. This milkshake is an excellent substitute instead of drinking coffee. It will not just give you energy but it will also give you happiness in a cup. The milkshake comes with a Boston Cream Croughnut that has a chocolatey goodness and cream inside. Their croughnut is not too sweet and yet veryΒ delicious. This dessert is definitely worth every calorie.

Strawberries n' Cream Oreo Croughnut with Berry Chia Milkshake

The Strawberries n’ Cream Oreo Croughnut tastes differently because of the crunch and creamy goodness it has. It is like eating a strawberry oreo cookie with a twist of eating it on a croughnut. πŸ˜™ BEST. CROUGHNUT. EVER!!!

The Berry Chia Milkshake is a healthy milkshake which is a great choice for health buffs out there. Chia seed is very healthy. Chia seed has a lot to offer : it has Omega 3 which is good for the heart; fiber that eliminates toxins; it is also high in antioxidant;Β and most importantly, chia seed controls blood sugar levels.

Chia seeds form a gel when placed in liquid. In our body, this gel helps to slow down the release of sugar from starches, giving us a prolonged release of energy rather than the high and low spikes we can get after eating a heavy meal.

To gain all these benefits, it is recommended to have a tablespoon of chia seeds per day — that is why drinking Dolcelatte’s Berry Chia Milkshake daily is one way to be healthy. This cold drink has thin ice and strawberries that are blended well with chia seeds. It has a sour-sweet blend that came from strawberries and a crunch from the chia seeds. You can immediately feel the healthy vibe after a few tasty sip from the drink. 🍧

They are just two out of the three new milkshakes that Dolcelatte recently created. They also have another one which is definitely worth trying – Maple Cinnamon Glaze Croughnut with Salted Caramel Latte Milkshake. πŸ’

These shakes will already make you happy and shake off the bad vibes for the day. Oh is your hanky wet already? Let’s change it and drool some more. How about another batch of drink and dessert?

Mango Icebox

I don’t know whose mind with a sweet tooth thought about this. My gosh! This is just a winner!!! I love mangoes and this shake is definitely another reason to love mangoes even more. It is a shake with graham crackers in the middle. Just like a mango float in a shake. The mangoes tasted fresh and sweet; the cream complemented the shake as well. You wouldn’t know that there’s ice inside because of how thin it is and the frosty goodness it gives. Yum-my!!!

Chocolate Banana Mousse Torte

This is a crowd-favorite! Since it’s a torte, this dessert is expected to be soft and creamy. The fresh slices of banana in the middle and the chocolate on the top of the mousse gives a different texture on each bite. Just as usual, this dessert isn’t too sweet but so tasty that it would be hard for you to ignore it. They have more desserts and hot/cold drinks to offer. Can’t wait to try the others next time.

The desserts are so sweet. As sweet as these 2 - my toddler S and Dolcelatte's lovely Operations Manager, Mitch

Did you already find the comfort food you need to “shake it off?” Ohhhh so you don’t have a sweet tooth, eh? How about these dishes to give you more comfort on a plate?

Bread with Butter

Pulled Pork Nachos

I usually don’t eat tomatoes; but the combination of their sauces plus their pulled pork made me want to eat some. The chips are crispy and the sauces/dips will make you want more. The crispy pork toppings are too many and delectably delicious that we actually ate it with rice. 🍚 I recommend everyone to try it!

Beef Salpicao with Bread

At first, Β we were hesitant to try this appetizer; but when our server recommended it to us, we ordered it without batting an eyelash. And yes, we regret it! We regret ignoring it for so long. The beef is tender and tasty. It is the best beef salpicao I’ve ever tasted. The ratio of the beef, mushroom and sauce are just right to enjoy the whole dish. The serving is generous and that is why me and my husband bought a garlic rice to pair it with. Asians love rice. Yes we do! 😊

Supposed to be a shrimp marinara but I requested for them to make it an olive oil-based seafood pasta.

I already made a review about this before and up until now, nothing changed. It is still delicious because of the hint of garlic and the taste of seafood on this al dente pasta.

Carbonara

I don’t like carbonara. Again, because I am lactose intolerant; but for some reason, I can totally eat this carbonara freely. I love the creamy sauce, crunchy bacon, and their al dente linguine. It doesn’t taste like milk at all. It is not too salty and it doesn’t have an “umay” taste. We’ll definitely order this next time. πŸ‘ Just like this cheese onion pizza that looks very promising as well.

Love cheese? Try the three cheese caramelized onion pizza from Dolcelatte. Disclaimer : The boy is not included. πŸ˜…

I made this post to make a review on Dolcelatte’s new dishes and desserts.. and to remind each and everyone of us that whenever we experience bad times, hear sad stories/bad comments, get sick or have problems.. don’t forget to call on God and trust that everything will be alright; pray and seek His Word then SHAKE IT OFF! Shake off all your worries, anxiety and stress. Be with your family, friends and loved ones then enjoy and find a perfect comfort food from Dolcelatte. Their shakes, desserts and main dishes will definitely make you feel like you already shook it off. 😊

For this experience, we’ll give them a 10/10 because of their restaurant’s cleanliness and classy ambiance plus their great customer service. Our servers were friendly, smart, helpful and snappy. They all look professional. The servers are knowledgeable of the food they offer. I noticed some customers asking them about Dolcelatte’s new menu and how they appreciated the servers’ welcoming approach. I’m sureΒ Dolcelatte is proud to have the best frontliners to take care of their customers. Because of them, Dolcelatte will easily gain loyal customers. Good job!!! πŸ‘

Their new array of dishes and desserts are great choices to be included in the menu. I’m so excited to try the other desserts and dishes next time. You should try them too!
