But First, Coffee (Milkshakes): How to Make the Best Homemade Coffee Milkshakes

The Best Coffee Milkshake Recipe Made with Homemade Coffee Ice Cream

Okay, so as it turns out, this Sunday is National Coffee Milkshake Day. And since I happen to have some leftover homemade coffee ice cream from a previous recipe post, I am all in for this food holiday. No question.

So, I’m sharing a simple recipe for the best homemade coffee milkshake I’ve ever had. For real. It’s that good. There’s one secret ingredient that I’m convinced helps it to stand out from the rest. Curious to know what it is?

The Best Coffee Milkshake Recipe Made with Homemade Coffee Ice Cream

Ingredients (makes 1 serving):

– 4 large scoops of homemade coffee ice cream
–  1/3 cup of milk
– 1 milk chocolate or dark chocolate bar


Add coffee ice cream and milk into a blender.

Then, using a vegetable peeler, shave the long side of a chocolate bar into the blender. I used about 1/4 of a cup of chocolate shavings for mine, but you can use as much or as little as you’d like. This will take your coffee milkshake from good to great.

Blend for 30 seconds to 1 minute (depending on your blender). That’s it!

Pour into a glass. Garnish with whipped cream, biscotti, and chocolate covered coffee beans and you’re good to go. Cheers!

love this! Looks delicious!


Step it up one more notch by using himemade coffee brandy ice cream


Rhode Islanders must be taking over. It used to be that you couldn’t find a coffee milk shake let alone coffee syrup for milk outside of Rhode Island. I can remember going a mile over the Connecticut state line and being told that coffee milk wasn’t carried. Coffee ice cream was also a local thing.

I have to try this recipe with a splash of Kaluha.


I love chocolate covered coffee beans, and iced coffee also. Not necessarily together, but this milkshake sounds like a little piece of heaven in a glass. Can’t wait to try it!!! Thanks for sharing.

This looks wonderful! I think I’m going to try it with some various types of chocolate bars, such as dark chocolate with chilies or mango dark chocolate or others. They should all be good with coffee. Thank you for the recipe.
