It’s been really hot these past few days.
How hot you ask?
Darn too hot to cook or even warm up food. So instead, I opted to make milkshakes for dinner the other night.
I rummaged through the freezer and found some chocolate and coconut ice creams which I threw in the blender with some other goodies. And some how, I inadvertently made the most delicious milkshake with the flavors of Almond Joy. ‘Cause….
Sometimes you feel like a nut…
Sometimes you don’t…..
It was decadently yummy and helped keep me cool during the .5 seconds it took me to inhale the whole thing.
I love it when I make delish things by accidents.
Almond Joy Milkshakes
1 heaping scoop chocolate ice cream
1 heaping scoop coconut ice cream
½ cup almond milk
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon coconut extract
1 ounce creme de cacao (optional)
2 tablespoons toasted coconut flakes
1 teaspoon toasted almond slices
1 teaspoon cacao nibs or chocolate chunks
In a blender, add both ice creams, almond milk, both extracts, creme de cacao (if using) and 1½ tablespoons coconut flakes. Blend until the shake is smooth and frothy. Pour the contents into a glass and sprinkle the top with the remaining coconut flakes, almond slices and cacao nibs (or chocolate).
