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:


Coffee Whirl


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.

Coffee "Frappe"


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)

Whipped cream


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.
