Hey, did you know that my milkshake brings all the boys to the yard and their like - it's better than yours! (snap snap) Damn right… it's better than yours! I can teach you, but I have to charge….(snap snap)
La la-la la la. (shake shake)
I absolutely love that song from Kelis “Milkshake,” and I think it’s the perfect way to start this awesome weekend. My weekend rituals consist of: blaring my car stereo to the max, windows rolled down, singing songs that are too darn catchy, and making delicious milkshakes for no reason at all. That’s what Fridays are for - singing, having fun and drinking milkshakes.
I had to make one more Godiva coffee inspired post because this was one of my favorite coffee concoctions that I used to make all the time at my old stomping grounds, Diedrich Coffee. Whenever a customer would order this sweet drink, I would always make sure to make a little extra for myself. A drink for the customer, and a little teaser for myself. This is a spin on my Spicy Godiva Iced Mocha paired with coffee ice cream - you can easily substitute vanilla ice cream if you don’t have homemade coffee ice cream like myself.
Cool yourself away with this sweet and spicy mocha milkshake.
Spicy Godiva Mocha Shake
Inspired by Diedrich Coffee
Spicy Mocha Mix:
1 tablespoon Vietnamese Cinnamon
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons sugar
¼ teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated
½ teaspoon Chipotle pepper
1-2 ounces Godiva Chocolate Truffle coffee, brewed as espresso
4 ounces Milk
2 scoops of Coffee Ice Cream, a little more than 1 cup
Toppings: Whipped cream, chocolate shavings, cinnamon/nutmeg/chipotle powder, chocolate covered espresso beans or cocoa nibs
Add the ingredients in a blender, 1 heaping tablespoon of the spicy mocha mix, espresso, milk and coffee ice cream and blend until smooth, about 1 minute.
Pour into a large glass and add desired toppings. Top with desired toppings - whipped cream, grated chocolate, cocoa nibs and a dash of the spices.
Serve immediately with a pretty straw and sip away to your milkshake’s delight and fight away the boys in yard.
Yield: 1 serving drink (16 ounces), plus a little extra to share
Disclosure: As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program I received two bags
of Godiva premium coffee.
Review: Go ahead and make it. Creamy, sweet and spicy – it hits the spot everytime.
