RECIPE: Make A Coffee Milkshake For National Coffee Milkshake Day

July 26th is National Coffee Milkshake Day.

We love coffee ice cream, but we never buy it. That’s because flavors we like even more beckon from the freezer case.

But today, we’re making a coffee or espresso milkshake to celebrate. You can be creative about it: In addition to a Coffee ice cream, Starbucks makes Caramel Macchiatos, Java Chip Frappuccinos and Mocha Frappuccinos.

We like adding ice cubes because they keep the shake ice-cold for a longer period of time. We add them to our Ninja blender first.


This recipe makes one large milkshake; alternatively, split the calories and share it with others.

  • 3 iced cubes or crushed ice (optional)
  • 1 cup strong coffee or espresso, chilled or at room temperature
  • 1/2 pint coffee ice cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Optional: 2 tablespoons Kahlúa or other coffee liqueur (we have a friend who adds two tablespoons of Nutella instead)
  • Optional: 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon or nutmeg
  • Optional garnish: whipped cream, chocolate-covered coffee beans
  • Drinking straw

    1. Use chocolate ice cream for a mocha milkshake.
    2. Use vanilla ice cream for a milder “caffe au lait” flavor.
