Hot Day’s Coffee

I almost always have an afternoon cup of coffee. It’s an important part of my day and crucial to my well-being. I get the kids down for their post-lunch rest time, and then I hurry to the kitchen to fix myself a pick-me-upper. But on days like today, when it’s sticky hot, I can’t bear to drink hot coffee, so I make a coffee shake instead. I made an extra big one this afternoon so that Mr. Handsome and I could each have a glass.

Coffee Shake
Adapted from the Frozen Coffee Smoothie recipe from Postmodern Feeding
1/2 cup espresso, or very strong coffee
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
10-12 ice cubes (or however many it takes to make a thick shake)

Whirl it all together in the blender and serve in a tall glass, with a straw to drink it with. Serves two (unless you’re being a Little Piggy).

*Add some chocolate or caramel syrup.
*Spike it with peppermint schnapps or some coffee liqueur.
*Top with whipped cream and/or grated chocolate.
