The singer has let us in on the secret recipe to her infamous milkshake...
You'd be hard pushed to find someone who hasn't heard the song 'Milkshake' by US singer Kelis.
In the famous song released in 2003, the singer brags about how her 'milkshake brings all the boys to the yard' and for the past fourteen years we've asked ourselves what sort of sorcery is this? What IS the secret to her famous shake?
She told CBS News "When people see milkshakes, they think of me and the song."
"It was the first time in my life that I could take that kind of time off from music," she said.
"I had a great time. It's nice because your brain can learn new stuff and be ignited by something new. It's a good feeling."
Kelis now divides her career between food an music and in 2015 released a cookbook called 'My Life On A Plate' and now in honour of National Milkshake Day the singer has let us in on her shake secret recipe.
