Well, this is the part of the article that you are going to absolutely love because we are going to give you a great recipe for a coffee shake that you can make in your own kitchen at home!

The Ingredients

In order to make the Great Coffee Shake, you will need some vanilla ice cream, ice cubes, and either espresso or regular coffee. As an added bonus, you may also want to include your favorite flavor of syrup topping such as chocolate or caramel, and some whipped cream for a final topping.

The Appliances

The kitchen appliances and equipment that you will need are a coffee maker or an espresso machine, a blender, and some cups and eating utensils for the final product.

The Directions

This recipe makes two servings so if you need to make a bigger batch, just multiply the amounts of ingredients according to how many extra servings you will need to make.

First, make your coffee or espresso. Prepare your coffee as strong or light as you want depending on your personal choice. Let your coffee cool a bit as you will not want to melt the ice cream with it.

Next, get your blender and drop two heaping scoops of vanilla ice cream into it. Drop in a shot of espresso or a quarter cup of regular coffee along with a small handful of ice cubes. Blend these ingredients together on high until you see that all the contents are mixed together forming a thick and icy shake.

Now, take the cups that you will be serving the Great Coffee Shakes in. Decorate the inside of the cups with your preferred syrup, adding as much or as little as you desire.

When you are done applying the syrup to the inside of the cups, transfer the blended ingredients from the blender to your cups. Finish it off with whipped cream on the top, and you can even add more syrup on top of the whip cream if you wish.

And there you have it! A Great Coffee Shake!
