Special Feature: Products Sally Recommends
2 Tablespoons good-quality chocolate syrup, preferably dark chocolate syrup (you can use more if you like your milkshake sweeter)
Cold, strong coffee (up to 1 cup)
About 1 cup slightly softened good-quality chocolate ice cream￼
You’ll need a powerful blender for this shake. Assemble blender container and place on base. Place chocolate syrup into a 1 cup liquid measure and add cold coffee to the 1 cup line. Stir thoroughly with a spoon to dissolve chocolate syrup.
Place slightly softened ice cream in blender container. (To soften ice cream, I start with a full pint, removing any lid and liner over the ice cream. Microwave at 50% (medium) power for about 10 to 12 seconds, depending on your microwave, just until ice cream softens slightly.) Work quickly now! By large spoonfuls, scopp about 1 cup of the slightly softened ice cream into the blender container (no need to measure; just “eyeball” the quantity). Pour coffee-chocolate syrup mixture over top.
Cover blender. Blend at highest speed just until smooth. This will be a thick shake; if it’s too thick, add another couple tablespoons of the cold coffee and blend again. Serve immediately!!
About 2 cups, 2 to 3 servings
