Eiskaffee (Iced Coffee)

  Normally when you ask for an iced coffee at a cafe, you get a cup of coffee with ice cubes in it plus or minus milk. I was surprised when I asked for one in Germany while on vacation and I got an iced coffee with vanilla ice cream in it. Let me tell you, the ice cream made it so much more delicious! I especially like to add ice cream to my iced coffee on really hot days, […]

Winter Squash Spice Latte

During the colder months, it’s nearly impossible to drop into a coffee shop and not notice a massive advertisement for some sort of pumpkin drink. And while the pumpkin deserves to have its moment, the Magic Bullet helps us realize that you can get just as much flavor and seasonal delight out of other winter squash relatives. Blending them in the Magic Bullet gives us a similarly deep and sweet flavor that’s familiar but refreshing. Winter Squash Spice Latte Ingredients […]

Coffee Brownie Milkshake

Did you know that I used to work at an ice cream shop? My favorite part of working there was sipping on the leftover milkshakes we used to make for the customers. My absolute favorite milkshake was our coffee brownie milk shake. Whenever a customer ordered it, I was so excited to drink the delicious leftovers in the blender. After I stopped working there, I continued making my favorite milk shake at home. It is really easy to make at […]

Coffee Frozen Yogurt

Lately it has been warm and sunny in the city, so I made some coffee frozen yogurt to celebrate this beautiful summer weather we’ve been having. I don’t have an ice cream maker, so I tried my best and it came out pretty good! If you have an ice cream maker, it will probably turn out better than just putting it in the freezer like I did. The texture is not as creamy as the kind you get when you go to […]
