coffee ice cream milkshakes (with coffee)


Maybe it's because my son was up five times last night, but coffee today is my best friend. I mean, it's pretty much always my best friend, but seriously I think I'm on my third cup and it's 7am! So when I was trying to decide what to share with you all this morning, these coffee coffee ice cream milkshakes (with actual coffee) jumped out at me. Because I want one right now. But be warned; if you make them they may in fact bring all the boys to your yard. 



I'm not going to pretend this wouldn't be an easy recipe to wing it on, but I want to share it with you anyways because these were amazing. Cold and creamy and caffeinated goodness, perfect for a summer afternoon or evening instead of a hot cup.

Coffee ice cream milkshakes recipe (with coffee!)

.........................................................................................................................................................

Ingredients 

1 1/2 cups of chilled coffee. You can either cold brew it, or just do what I did and throw whatever is left over from my morning pot into the refrigerator for a few hours.
6 large scoops of coffee ice cream
whipped cream
chocolate syrup

..........................................................................................................................................................

1. Add about 1 Tbsp of chocolate syrup to your cold coffee in a blender, and blend until mixed. 

2. Add your ice cream and blend until smooth. That's it! There really is no secret recipe here, I like easy food! If you'd like at this point you may add a shot of Bailey's Irish Cream or Kahlua (might I suggest the pumpkin pie variety?) if these are a dessert drink for adults. 

3. Garnish with whipped cream and drizzle with chocolate syrup to taste. Enjoy!


My husband and I had these the other night after a delicious dinner, which was the perfect end to a long day. However, I have been known to have caffeine after 9pm and have it not effect me, so take that into account! This stuff will wake you up.

Thanks for checking out my milkshakes! If you're drooling over this, you can also check out the cook page for more of my recipes.
