My hubby recently spent the day working from home. (Working very hard, I must add – I don’t know how he stays so focused, but it always makes me feel a little guilty…)
I thought he would enjoy a mid-afternoon pick me up. (He loves his coffee.) I wanted to make him a Salted Caramel Mocha frappuccino style drink, but I worried about blending up the ice – it might water down/weaken the coffee flavor too much.
So, I opted to use the next best frozen alternative… Ice cream!
This shake is so easy to make!
Salted Caramel Mocha Shake (serves 2):
- 3.5 oz cold coffee (I usually use coffee from the morning or brew and extra strong cup in my keurig mini and stick it in the freezer for a little while)
- 2 cups of vanilla ice cream
- 1.5 oz Salted Caramel Mocha creamer (If your coffee is extra strong, you could use a bit more- but be careful it is very sweet)
- Chocolate or caramel syrup to garnish the shake (Optional)
Combine all ingredients in a blender and serve.
The “coaster”? My very first attempt at a pin wheel!
My ice cream was very soft to start, so your shake will be thicker.
( The damper in my fridge, (I think that is what it is called) that lets the cold air from the freezer into the fridge is broken, so the bottom 2/3 of the fridge freezes everything. In order to keep the top two shelves usable, it helps to set the freezer setting at 5 to 7 degrees. We have a 2nd fridge in the laundry room, so there hasn’t been a big rush to fix it, plus I am still a little P O’d that my 48 inch built-in monogram fridge didn’t last longer that 1.5 years. – It lasted just long enough for the warranty to expire. Forgive my rant and bear with the slew of sponsored posts that I have scheduled over the next month so I can fix my fridge – it’s expensive! BTW, this post is not sponsored, we just really like this creamer.)
