GUESS WHAT DAY IT ISSS…
It’s NATIONAL COFFEE MILKSHAKE DAY!
I recognize that today is a national holiday and quite frankly, I am SHOCKED that Nourish Snacks didn’t consider this holiday special enough to call off work…
My commute to Nourish Snacks is a bit hectic – I walk to the subway, take the subway to Grand Central, & hop on a 50 minute train ride to Port Chester – all while juggling two bags with my salad probably spilling in one of them.
Before I make my little trip over to Port Chester, I like to treat myself to an iced coffee so I don’t fall asleep on the train and end up in Stamford.
The coffee shop in Grand Central gets busy in the AM and I’m always running late, so I brought a bottle of iced coffee JIC I can’t make it to the coffee shop due to my predictable tardiness.
Ya know, god forbid I don’t have any caffeine… Especially on national coffee milkshake day.
( AGAIN, I’m psycho when it comes to my cup of Joe !! )
Some how, some way, I had time to buy an iced coffee. Instead of ordering my usual medium iced coffee with light ice, I went with a large. I was just really feeling the holiday spirit, ya know?!!
Turns out, the large iced coffee was indeed large… Like, we’re talking big gulp size!! I won’t need to reach for a second cup of coffee at 3:00!
I looked the barista dead in the eye and said, “Challenge accepted”, like a true coffee addict.
The iced coffee HIT THE SPOT.
BUT – hold up, hold up. It’s national coffee milkshake day. A huge ass cup of iced coffee won’t suffice for this holiday- no matter what the size!
Luckily, I still had that bottled iced coffee so I PUT 👏🏼 THAT 👏🏼 THING 👏🏼 TO 👏🏼 WERK…
In addition to the coffee, I used halo top ice cream in the milkshake! This recipe is lighter than most milkshakes because halo top ice cream has less fat, calories, and sugar than most ice cream brands. In fact, this recipe has nearly 900% less calories than Sonic’s medium peanut butter milkshake; there’s no need to “shake” off this shake! HAH.
It’s a Christmas miracle.. er… national coffee milkshake day miracle…
1 cup halo top chocolate mocha chip
1/3 cup cold brew
2 T cashew mylk
pinch of cinnamon
pinch of himilayan sea salt
Toppings : rainbow sprinkles & whipped cream
Blend all ingredients in a blender and top with whipped cream and rainbow sprinkles.
I hope you all have a holly, jolly, caffeine buzzed holiday!
