National Coffee Milkshake Day
Coffee is a favorite drink of almost everyone. A large portion of the population depends on it to get them up in the morning. What happens when it gets too hot to drink a cup of steaming coffee?
It’s not pleasant to soak your clothes in sweat right after a morning shower. Someone thought of everything and created coffee milkshakes.
1885 was the first time that “milkshake” was used. Milkshakes at that time were quite different to what you get today at Dairy Queen. They were alcoholic drinks made from eggs and whiskey, similar to eggnog. However, soon after that, milkshakes began to be referred to ice cream-based drinks with vanilla, strawberry or chocolate syrups. Milkshakes were popular in the malt shops that are featured in most of the movies today. These were often student gathering places. A milkshake was a sign of intimacy and affection between couples who were dating in the 1940s and 1950s.
To give milkshakes a caffeine boost, coffee was also added to them. The unique flavor was loved by millions around the world. Finally, a day was established to celebrate this delicious combination of coffee with ice cream. Starbucks’ Frappuccino is one variation of this drink.
It’s July and it’s likely that it’s hot outside if you’re reading this. This is why there’s no better day than today to celebrate Coffee Milkshake Day. So why not make one! If you make coffee milkshakes for all your coworkers, you’ll be the favorite person in the office. This simple and delicious recipe adds just a touch of chocolate to the mix, making a hot summer afternoon more bearable.
Blend the coffee, vanilla cream, ice, and 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup in a blender until smooth. You can thin the mixture by adding a few drops of milk to loosen it. However, it won’t matter if it is too thick as it will thicken as it warms up.
You can add more ice cream to make it thicker.
You can pour the milkshake in a large glass or two glasses. Add a generous amount of whipped cream to the milkshake and drizzle with chocolate syrup. Serve immediately
This doesn’t sound like the perfect summer beverage.
