Coffee Milkshake

Want dessert and a delicious pick-me-up? Have a coffee milkshake!  It’s the perfect refreshing end to a late afternoon or evening barbecue on a warm — or sweltering — summer evening, especially if you plan to go to the theater, dancing, or just hang out and visit, maybe even watch the annual meteor shower.

If a milkshake is a little too much after dinner, consider making an Affogato — a scoop of Very Vanilla ice cream with a shot of hot espresso poured over it. The trick is to make scoops of vanilla ice cream and refreeze on a small baking sheet until it is really firm. Serve it in a bowl or a cup and enjoy with a spoon or sip the richness.


Coffee Milkshake



4 scoops The Best Vanilla Ice Cream

1/4 cup chilled coffee

1/4 cup Hot Fudge

1/2 cup whipped cream


In a blender, blend the ice cream, coffee, 2 tablespoons of the hot fudge, and 1/4 cup of whipped cream until thick and creamy.

Pour into a milkshake glass.

Pour the remaining hot fudge over the milk shake and top with the remaining whipped cream and a couple of coffee beans as a garnish.

I was given a small bottle of Rain’s Choice in a gift basket and I have been hooked ever since. The flavor makes all of my baking so much better! I will never use grocery store vanilla again!
