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.

For this visit, we chose to grab some croissants and macarons from the bakery, and find a seat in the cafe-styled section as the sun set through floor to ceiling windows. We also ordered a wonderful bottle of chardonnay – A stellar combination for a Sunday afternoon.
