Relax While Sipping On This Homemade Coffee Milkshake
Taste: The sweet flavor of coffee in these shakes is brought to you by rich coffee ice cream! Every sip delivers everything you love about your favorite caffeine without even having to brew up a batch of coffee!

The Best Ways To Serve These Shakes!
You really can’t go wrong with how you serve these Coffee Milkshakes! But you can dress them up for some added delicious fun!
I find the best way to serve these shakes is to turn them into a freak shake similar to my Peanut Butter Milkshake! For these, I drizzle the rim of the glasses with chocolate syrup and then roll them in coffee beans.
Afterward, I carefully pour the blended shake into the glasses and stick a thick straw in them. Then I slide a stack of donuts onto the straw, drizzle with more chocolate syrup, and add a dollop of whipped cream with a splash of sprinkles!
Sweet Variations Of This Coffee Milkshake Recipe
- Switch up the flavor of these milkshakes by adding chocolate syrup, vanilla, or hazelnut simple syrup!
- Make a caramel coffee milkshake by blending in some caramel sauce!
- Trade in the half & half and use your favorite flavored coffee creamer instead! Keep it classic with vanilla coffee creamer or caramel macchiato. Or have fun by making the shakes with southern butter pecan creamer or almond joy!
- Sneak a bit of protein into this frozen treat by adding some plain or coffee protein powder!
How Many Milkshakes Does This Recipe Make?
This recipe yields one milkshake. However, making more than one is super simple since you’ll already have all of the ingredients out!
If you have a very large blender, you could make two by doubling the recipe!
What Can I Use As Substitutions For The Half & Half?
You can use your choice of milk instead! Whether that’s almond milk, cashew, whole, or oat milk, all would be just fine.
Flavored coffee creamer can also be used as a substitute for half & half.
Why Is My Milkshake Runny?
If your coffee shake turned out runny too much liquid was added to it. Or the ice cream sat at room temperature for too long.
How Can I Increase The Coffee Flavor In These Milkshakes?
If you really love a strong coffee flavor, you could add in some espresso!
Can I Make This Recipe With Vanilla Ice Cream Instead?
Yes, but you’ll have to then add in cold brew coffee or instant coffee powder to create the coffee flavor.
