Ready In:


  • 2 ounces strong coffee, chilled

  • Add water that has just come to a boil.
  • Allow to brew 4 minutes, then push plunger down.
  • Pour into an ice-filled pitcher.
  • Combine coffee, milk and ice cream in a blender and blend until smooth.

  1. This decadent treat is well worth the calories!!! I wasn't able to get Starbuck's ice cream so I used Haagan-Dazs instead. I used about 1 cup (half of the pint) of ice cream since I wasn't exactly sure how much 4 scoops would be. I felt the shake was just right with this amount. Not too thick and not too thin. I used brewed double strength coffee and I did not add sugar. It was fantastic! Fortunately, I made it one afternoon when I was home alone so I didn't have to share either!!! ;) Bliss, you were right, it doesn't get much better than this! Thanks for sharing!
  2. I just had this in the evening and it was awesome!!!! Thanks a million for posting!:-)


The little cutie here is Martha, the sweet lady I was blessed to have worked with for two years. Martha passed away on 12/3/08. Martha and I would ride endlessly during the holidays, and she would sing carols and laugh and just enjoy it so much. I know this holiday season, she will be with her brother, son and mother and finally be "home". Martha, I still love you more. ******* I'm a simple girl, born of good stock. I'm the mamma of two spoiled tuxedo cats: Beauregard and Patches (the one who's been drinking eggnog). They love cuddling together, and this picture is taken on my hall steps. I'm a firm believer in LOA. I need to get more dedicated to daily practice. Below is a film that explains it, and is wonderful. I highly recommend it. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* This is Beau enjoying his computer. He's quite good at deleting messages, making the desktop disappear (as is his brother). Their path to the window is over my keyboard. <IMG SRC=""> This is Patches, planning his strategy to keep me awake, but cuddling his sock baby and trying to be cute to throw me off. <IMG SRC=""> Beau works a long week. He's relaxing finally, after a beer. <IMG SRC="">mnhj BTW, "mnhj" means "I just walked across our keyboard once again and left you a present." ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ I'm trying to figure out my new rating system. As of 10/1/06, this is how I'll rate recipes. I will be changing some previous reviews. 5*~~Outstanding recipe--the best of the best here. 4*~~Something I find delicious; will make often; would serve to guests. 3*~~Something I might fix again; enjoyed; needed something added before I try again 2*~~Something I could finish, but would never try again, regardless of additions or subtractions 1*~~Could not finish it; would not even make possums suffer with this (I haven't found many of these--only one of my own that I grabbed from the internet!!) <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="">
