Here’s the thing about Valentine’s Day. Casey and I always bypass going out to dinner and we make a special dinner at home. I don’t know why I typed WE because I’m the one that makes the dinner. He’s the one that picks out the wine/does the dishes/puts the boy to bed. It’s a guarantee that we’ll always eat too much dinner and then we’ll end up in food comas. We’re usually so tired that we can barely watch a movie. It got me thinking…why don’t I just make dessert with espresso in it so we can get a jolt of energy? Let’s make it so that we can actually Netflix & Chill. Did I use that term right? I dunno. You know what I’m saying 😉
This milkshake has three coffee additions. First we start with a base of Humboldt Creamery Organic Coffee Ice Cream (which is so good btw!), we mix it in the blender with chocolate covered espresso beans AND Kahlúa because we’re grown ups.
We top with additional chopped chocolate covered espresso beans and ENJOY that little surge of energy. Now what are we going to have for dinner? How about some steaks and some twice baked potatoes?!
Let’s gather our ingredients:
The foundation to any milkshake is quality ice cream! Humboldt Creamery also makes delicious flavors like strawberry, vanilla mint chocolate chip & chocolate.
Btw- I’m obsessed with this scooper. It works so well.
Ice cream goes into the blender.
Followed by espresso, chocolate covered espresso beans, milk & Kahlua!
Blended! Look at those little bits of espresso beans.
You could add some boozy whipped cream to the top…
But make your life simple and add chocolate covered espresso beans.
One for you. One for your boo!
Milkshake/Netfix/Back massage that lasts more than 1 minute/Chill
