On a hot summer day, a cool milkshake can be just the refreshment you need. Some meals, such as burgers and fries, just wouldn't seem quite complete without the accompaniment of a milkshake. There is no reason you must stick to traditional flavours such as chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. You can liven up a basic milkshake with a dollop of caramel sauce, a few cacao nibs, a pinch of salt and myriad other additions. If you are a coffee fan, you may find that coffee-flavoured milkshakes quickly become your new favourite indulgence.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Place the ice cream and coffee into a blender. Allow the coffee to cool before you do this. Blend until the two ingredients are completely mixed together.

  2. 2

    Add more ice cream if you want a thicker milkshake, or more coffee if you want it thinner. This recipe makes a medium-thickness final product, so you may need to adjust the proportions of the ingredients to suit your personal preferences. Blend again to remix the ingredients.

  3. 3

    Pour the milkshake into a glass of your choice. Garnish with whipped cream, chocolate shavings, nuts, a cherry or other toppings of your choice.

Tips and warnings

  • If you want a stronger coffee flavour, use coffee-flavoured ice cream. If you only have coffee-flavoured ice cream but don't want an overwhelming coffee flavour, use milk rather than coffee as your liquid. Add a few coffee beans for a bit of crunch in the final milkshake.
  • Use chocolate ice cream to make a mocha milkshake. Replace the coffee with milk and add 18 ml (1 tablespoon) of instant coffee to the blender for another method of making this drink.
