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 coffee ice cream, Starbucks sells pints of Caramel Macchiatos, Java Chip Frappuccinos, and Mocha Frappuccino ice cream.

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.

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

  • 3 ice 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, Baileys Irish Cream, or tequila, vodka, or other spirit
  • Optional: 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon or nutmeg (we have a friend who adds two tablespoons of Nutella)
  • Optional garnish: whipped cream, chocolate-covered coffee beans
  • Drinking straw

    1. CRUSH the ice in a blender.

    2. ADD the other ingredients and process for 30 to 60 seconds or until smooth.

    3. POUR into a tall glass; garnish (if desired) and serve with a straw.


  • Use chocolate ice cream for a mocha milkshake.
  • Use vanilla ice cream for a milder “café au lait” flavor.
