This Vanilla Latte Milkshake recipe is the perfect way to enjoy some of your favorite flavors of breakfast and dessert in one drink!
I’m a sucker for milkshakes. Ice cream in general usually wins me over, but there is something to be said about a good milkshake. Especially because they aren’t as easy as you’d think they should be to make at home. It’s not as easy as throwing some milk and ice cream in a blender then enjoying tastes that are reminiscent of your favorite ice cream shop.
Or, in my case, not even an ice cream shop and more so a small cafe that took my favorite drink off their menu. I don’t even remember what it was called, but it was essentially an espresso milkshake with this waffle cookie type thing on top. It was pure bliss. I don’t know how they did it because I tried to recreate it plenty of times and failed miserably. But to this day, many years after I had my last, I still remember how good it was.
Even though I never was able to recreate it, I did learn how to make a decent milkshake.
And today’s vanilla latte milkshake recipe? Way better than just decent.
It’s kind of like a breakfast milkshake. If I can find a way to combine my love for breakfast and ice cream, I’m in. And it makes me miss that milkshake a whole lot less. The bonus for me was that I used decaf coffee for both types that I used in the recipe, making it pregnancy friendly. But if you’re looking for that sugary caffeinated rush? By all means, use caffeinated coffee and this milkshake is your answer!
