    Caramel Coffee Milkshake Recipe

    Caramel Coffee Milkshake Recipe

    by Alex Brecher June 07, 2023

    A milkshake can be the ticket to a happy day, and using Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee Rise and Shine can add a caffeine boost, not to mention intense and complex flavor to balance the caramel syrup and the simplicity of creamy, rich vanilla ice cream. What better way to give yourself a pick-me-up and enjoy some of the most delightful flavors in the world? 

    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
    • With berries on top of whipped topping

    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.
