Creamy caramel coffee milkshakes.

I wanted something sweet to drink and I had half a small carton of cream leftover to use up. Ordinarily I’d have used vanilla ice cream, but this time I omitted all vanilla ice cream and extract from the recipe.

I had to resist the urge to Snapchat document the entire process. An addiction I will describe in another post haha. I think I would make a decent vlogger… Recipe videos would be so much fun as well.

I planned to shake up all the ingredients in the milk bottle that was a little less than half full. Asking my brothers if they wanted milkshakes, I decided to amp up the flavour from iced coffee flavoured milk to something sweeter with a bit of caramel ice cream topping sauce.

Verdicts from the brothers:

Ivan: “Looks great! I’m gonna Instagram it.” 

Anan: I asked him if it looked like something a White girl would order at Starbucks and he said “Yeah” with a chuckle. (Okay I am actually gonna get up and go to his room and see how he like the taste – brb.) “Anaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan, did you like the milkshake?” “Yeah.” Cool, cool.

Alvi: “Tres bien.” he said to me after one sip. 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 400ml milk
  • 1 tablespoon sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 tablespoons caramel sauce, plus extra for topping
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 150ml cream
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee dissolved
  • Whipped cream, for topping
  • Chocolate sprinkles, for topping

Method:

  1. First dissolve the instant coffee and add to milk.
  2. Blend cream, sugar and sweetened condensed milk with milk before finally adding the caramel sauce and blending to combine.
  3. Serve and top with whipped cream, extra caramel sauce swirled, and sprinkles if desired.

Notes:

  • I did not use a blender for this recipe. I simply shook up all the ingredients in the milk bottle that was on it’s way to being emptied. 🙂
  • Yield = 4 small serves (one mug is smaller and differently shaped to the others photographed but portions are equal).
