Coffee Choco-Chip Shake

Coffee and chocolate are my faves (and of most of us I guess) – so their combination is surely yummmmy! A milkshake with ice cream, chocolate, and coffee is a sure shot winner. This one is refreshing esp in the summer.

It transported me to those days when I had tasted the shakes at Mocha in Mumbai 🙂

 

 

 

This one is an entry for the Cool Desserts series at Paajaka. The other cool desserts and drinks on my blog are here and here.

Also, thanks to EC for allowing this one for her Juices and Ice Cream event. I am sending this one there too.

 

 

                                        

Ingredients:

Chilled milk: 1 cup (you can use any you like – I used 2%)

Vanilla ice cream: 2 scoops (you can use chocolate or coffee ice cream too)

Chocolate: 2-3 small blocks or 2 teaspoons chocolate chips (you can use milk, dark, or semi-sweet varieties according to your taste)

Instant coffee powder: ½ teaspoon

 

Method:

  1. Keep a few shavings and/or a slice of chocolate for garnish. Similarly, reserve a pinch of coffee powder for garnish.
  2. In a blender, combine milk, ice cream, chocolate, and coffee (apart from the reserved amounts). Puree till smooth and then aerate till frothy. A few chunks of chocolate chips will remain – but that’s the idea!
  3. Transfer to a glass/mug and garnish with coffee powder, chocolate shavings, and slice. Enjoy chilled immediately!

This method is very forgiving and you can add more or less ice cream according to the thickness of shake you desire. You may even drizzle honey, sugar, or maple syrup if you want additional sweetness.
