Flavor Variations on Caramel Coffee Milkshake
There are so many ways you can vary this milkshake and still highlight the delicious flavor of strong coffee. Here are just a few ideas for ice cream, syrup, and other flavoring combos.
Make it simple with vanilla ice cream and vanilla extract (as listed in the recipe below).
Chocolate ice cream with or without vanilla extract to make a mocha-inspired milkshake. You can use caramel topping or chocolate syrup.
Add coffee liqueur for a grown-up milkshake.
If you love hazelnut creamer in your coffee, try butter pecan or pistachio ice cream.
Give your milkshake an icier consistency with rainbow or orange sherbet.
You can also blend in cookie pieces, sprinkles, chocolate chips, or a small amount of coffee grinds.
If you’re on a low-carb diet, you can use keto-friendly ice cream or sugar-free ice cream. Keto and sugar-free syrups are also easy to come by, and they taste just as good.
Serving Your Caramel Coffee Milkshake
Milkshakes are made for happiness, so you can serve your caramel coffee milkshake as you like. There’s no wrong way to serve it, as long as you love it. Here are some possibilities.
Whipped cream or non-dairy whipped topping on top
Biscotti or cigar cookies stuck in the milkshake
Mini chocolate chips or chocolate candies on whipped topping
Chopped peanuts or pecans

This can definitely be a recipe worth sharing, and it’s easy to make enough for a friend by doubling the recipe. You can triple or quadruple the recipe as needed. Just be sure your blender is large enough to hold all of the ingredients.
The texture of milkshakes is best right when you finish blending them, so it’s good to plan to serve your milkshake as soon as you make it.
