3. In a blender, combine all the ingredients, with 1/2 cup ice cubes, and blend until frothy. 4. Pour into a tall glass and top with whipped cream. Do well to serve it immediately.
What type of coffee beans is best for making your coffee milkshake?
In our opinion, you can't go wrong with the dark roasted beans from local roasters like Coffee Hero. Or you can try lightly roasted coffee that has a light to medium body and a full flavor without the bitterness that often accompanies dark roasted beans.
You can try other single-origin coffees like Ethiopian coffee, Kenyan coffee, Peru Coffee, Colombian coffee to get a taste of all and compare. Or for a nice sweetness kick, try coffee blends, they produce more flavors, you can start with our blends, Kick start, Sin City and Smooth Operator.
What kind of milk should you use?
Milk of your choice is ideal for making coffee milkshakes. It should have a smooth texture, rich taste, and rich color. Dark chocolate, double cream, cow's milk, soy milk, rice milk, skimmed milk, chocolate almond milk, soya, and all the milk under dairy are all good milk to use for making coffee milkshakes.
However, if you are not able to find any of them, then just choose any low or fat milk. Also, remember that you can make coffee milkshakes with water as well. It will not make any difference to the taste.
How To Whip Cream
If your milk does not come prepared, you can use the milk and cream that are set aside. However, before using the milk and cream for the coffee milkshake, make sure that you have beaten it. If you've made a coffee cream to beat the cream, pour it into a bowl, add sugar, and stir. This will separate the cream from the milk. Put the milk in a separate bowl and whip the cream. Pour this mixture into a cup and cover the top of the coffee cream. Put the lid on and allow it to sit in a refrigerator.
If you want to add a little butter to it, then this is how to make some:
