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.
The history of the milkshake began with alcohol, so we’ve included optional liqueur or spirits in the recipe below.
