Lactose-Free Mocha Milkshake

Hi Guys and Dolls!

This is my first ever recipe post! It’s not something I had ever planned to include on the blog, however it felt like a natural addition right now.

I used to work as a Barista while I was in school, and as I say – Once a Barista, always a Barista! I’m constantly making up new, yummy drinks in the kitchen – It’s something I definitely have a lot of fun with so I figured it was time to share.

I’m not one for measuring out ingredients, however I’ll do my best to give you amounts. I like to use a Blender Bottle (28-Ounce) when I’m mixing cold drinks, as it’s the perfect serving size, and works well for eyeballing ingredients!

If you give this a try, please let me know in the comments.

Ingredients:

  • Silk, Dark Chocolate Almond Milk
  • Chapman’s, Vanilla Lactose-Free Ice Cream
  • Lindt, Sea Salt Dark Chocolate (bar)
  • Starbucks, Pike Place Coffee (regular or decaf)
  • Gay Lea, Real coconut Whipped Cream
  • Honey
  • Cinnamon
  • Ice cubes

 

Directions:

1. Place (3) pieces of Lindt chocolate in a small or regular sized coffee mug. Add approximately (1) tablespoon of honey. Microwave for approximately 40 seconds or until melted.

2. Using a pour-over coffee maker, brew two scoops of coffee into the same mug. Add a dash of cinnamon in with the grounds.

Depending on the day, I like to either use caffeinated coffee, decaf or a scoop of each to make half-caf. You can use your favourite coffee, however I find ones with a bolder taste like Starbuck’s Pike Place work best.

3. Give the mug a quick stir once the coffee is brewed into it.

4. Fill Blender Bottle approximately (3/4) with ice cubes.

5. Pour almond milk over the ice until the bottle is approximately half full (1/2).

6. Pour mug containing the mix of coffee, honey, and chocolate into the bottle.

7. Fill the rest of the bottle with ice cream – Approximately (3) medium scoops.

8. Pour everything from the Blender Bottle into a blender. You can choose to liquify or crush, depending on the texture you prefer – I personally prefer to liquify for a smoother texture.

9. Pour contents from the blender back into the blender bottle.

10. Top with coconut whipped cream and a light dusting of cinnamon.

11. Enjoy!
