Cold coffee flavored drinks and milkshake blender recipes have become increasingly popular over the years. With so many coffee syrups available to buy these days you can probably create almost any coffee flavoured milk or ice creams based drink you can think of.
One of my favorites is the coconut mocha milkshake made with 1 teaspoon coffee, 1tablespoon of coconut syrup, 2 scoops of chocolate ice cream and ½ a cup of milk.
We use [amazon_textlink asin=’B00QQ698IW’ text=’coffee syrups like these on Amazon’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’blenderexpertalb-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=”], but if you are unable to get hold of them you can usually adapted a recipe by changing the flavor of the ice cream and using ice cream topping and sauces instead. For example, the above recipe could have been made with, coconut ice cream and chocolate sauce or topping.
