As the resident party planner among my group of friends, I’m always looking for interesting and fresh ideas for dinner parties. Next week I’m throwing a dinner party where every course will have a modern twist on a childhood favorite. If you know me, it’s no surprise that I’m kicking the planning off with dessert – homemade coffee ice cream milkshakes!
As a kid I loved milkshakes. I also loved coffee, but my mom wouldn’t let me have any. For dessert I’ll be making a coffee ice cream milkshake made with Tillamook Coffee Almond Fudge Ice Cream. This coffee ice cream is the perfect blend of coffee, butter-roasted almonds, and a chocolate fudge ripple. The recipe is simple — scoop the coffee ice cream in a blender with a little milk and ice, blend, and enjoy!
If you want to add a little flair, throw in a dash of your favorite adult liquor, such as Bailey’s, Kahlua, Grand Marnier or Chambord (adults only!). Vanilla extract also adds some additional flavor. Top off your coffee ice cream milkshake with an espresso bean and thick, rich, creamy fudge!
If you happen to be on your way to the Tillamook Cheese Factory, enjoy $1 off Coffee Ice Cream Milkshakes today in honor of National Coffee Milkshake Day!
