I’m usually not much of one for cold coffee milkshakes, but these past few weeks I’ve been making our afternoon coffee in the form of a milkshake. They are tasty, delicious, and healthy – not to mention super quick.
How do I make them? Freeze ice cube tray with whole milk. Put 1 or 1.5 cups of cream into your blender pitcher. Add 2 Tablespoons of maple syrup and a dash of vanilla. Add a few ounces of strongly brewed coffee (we use a few shots of espresso). Put the blender pitcher in the freezer and while you’re at it a few glasses so they chill.
After about 30 minutes when the cream is good and chilled, add frozen milk cubes and blend for a few minutes. That’s all there is to it. It’s so delicious it’s hard to believe it’s good for you. All that healthy fat in the cream is chocked full of vitamin A and other goodness, the probiotics in the raw milk are good for your gut, there are minerals in the maple syrup and antioxidants in the coffee. Who knew something so tasty could be so healthy?
