It's National Coffee Milkshake Day: Celebrate With These Recipes
Today is National Coffee Milkshake Day.
We know that there's a food holiday practically every day (most of them hyped by some PR hack from some food council), but everyone loves coffee, and everyone loves milk shakes, so this is a day worthy of parades and marching bands -- all hopped up on caffeine and sugar!
In honor of this day, we present you with two delicious coffee recipes:
1 scoop vanilla ice cream
2 tablespoons strong brewed coffee, cold
1/4 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
In a blender, combine ice cream, coffee and cocoa.
Blend until smooth.
Pour into glasses and serve.
18 -22 ice cubes, crushed
7 ounces double-strength coffee, chilled
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 tablespoons flavored syrup of choice (vanilla, hazelnut, raspberry or other)
Place the ice, coffee, sugar and syrup in a blender.
Blend until the frappe is smooth.
Pour into a large, tall glass.
Garnish with a dollop of whipped cream.
