What’s better than a white Russian cocktail? A white Russian cocktail with ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate, and a cherry on top! Fortunately, I have found just such a recipe, and I’m happy to share it with you. So plug in your blender, and let’s get our boozy milkshake on!
Enjoy a White Russian Winter Milkshake made with Kahlúa and coffee ice cream.
Kahlua and vodka are staples in my bar cabinet, and I usually have some milk around. And ice, of course! That made shopping for this milkshake recipe pretty simple: I just needed coffee ice cream. Good thing that happens to be one of my and my husband’s favorite flavors. I’m sure he will agree that he suffers now that I blog about food LOL!
Yes, there is a little more work to blending a milkshake than just shaking up a cocktail, but I promise you it’s worth it! I had my frothy, creamy milkshake/cocktail mixed up and garnished in 3 minutes and 30 seconds.
I did change one thing from the picture of the ingredients for this, and that’s using crushed ice instead of cubes. Thank my husband for that idea, because I think the crushed ice blended more thoroughly than the cubes would have. (Definitely something to note when I make my next smoothie.)
Garnishing this lovely drink was even easier. I used canned whipped cream, drizzled it with chocolate syrup, and dropped a cherry onto the creamy goodness. As you can see, things got a little messy, but I purposely did that for my photos. No worries about this happening to you unless you purposely overfill your glass.
