Pick Me Up Coffee Shake

Often in the mid afternoon I get a slump.  What is better to perk you up than a little shot of caffeine! 

If you think you might ever want to make this shake in the next few weeks, get out your coffee pot right now and make double strong coffee.  Then pour it in ice cube trays and freeze until firm.  Put in a ziplock freezer bag and store in your freezer so they are ready when you get the need for a pick me up!

I am drinking this as I type and it is just what I needed this afternoon to get the energy to finish cleaning!





PICK ME UP COFFEE SHAKE


6 double strong coffee ice cubes
2-3 T. chocolate syrup
1/2 cup milk or half & half
1 scoop vanilla ice cream
spray whipped cream
cinnamon

No need to measure on this recipe! Get out your blender and throw in the coffee cubes.  Then squirt in some chocolate syrup, dump in some milk, throw in a scoop of ice cream if you have some.  If you don't have ice cream, or want a less caloric shake, no need to add it! Flip on the blender and let it go! If it gets stuck, add more liquid.  Taste it and see if it needs more of anything.  If it meets your taste buds, pour in a glass, spray on some whipped cream, and sprinkle with cinnamon!  Add a straw and enjoy the moment!

Yield: 1 shake

Let me know if you make them what your thoughts are! They definetly are picturesque!
