Kelis has never made a milkshake despite the drink featuring as the name of her biggest hit.
The 36-year-old R&B star's 2003 hit Milkshake made it to number three in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, and to number one in the U.K.
Despite her most successful record in the charts containing the lyrics, "My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard," Kelis says she's never actually made the dairy based thirst quencher, and instead prefers spinach smoothies.
"I don’t think I’ve ever made a milkshake," she tells British newspaper The Guardian. "I made a smoothie the other day that was really good – protein powder, spinach, orange, and crushed ice with a little bit of honey and coconut water."

Moby opened his first vegan cafe in New York in an effort to save his relationship with girlfriend Kelly Tisdale.
The dance music superstar, who has since severed ties with TeaNY and now owns Los Angeles diner Little Pine, admits he would never have known the joy and frustrations of running an eatery had it not been for 9/11 and the need to keep a romance alive.
"Two weeks after September 11, 2001 my then-girlfriend and I were thinking about what we could do to save our relationship and also make some sense of living in a decimated lower Manhattan," Moby explains in an essay written for the new issue of Playboy magazine.
"Our first thought was that because we truly loved alcohol we would open a bar... Then we thought we'd have a baby. But we were both doing obscene amounts of drugs and had managed to break up once a week for the previous two years, so having a baby seemed like it might be problematic."

Hitmakers Pharrell Williams, Moby and Ellie Goulding have offered to perform at an upcoming Los Angeles charity bash for free in honour of a British man who was bullied online when footage of his dance moves went viral.
Photos of the Londoner were posted on 4chan.org last month (Feb15) by an anonymous user, who captioned them, "Spotted this specimen trying to dance the other week. He stopped when he saw us laughing."
The cruel comment prompted Los Angeles-based activist Cassandra Banks to launch a campaign to track down the cyber-bullying victim, known on social media as Dancing Man, so she and organisers at The Free Thought Project, which nurtures creativity, could throw a dance party for him.
