Cappuccino Milkshake

Cappuccino Milkshake from #MilkshakeWeek

Ahhh, it’s still milkshake week and I’m so hopped up on milkshakes! :) I’m excited to share this one with you. A while back, we ended up at Outback for dinner. Their dessert menu had these mini milkshakes and I had to order one. Guess what? It was amazing. I was trying to figure out how they made it, I looked over at Curtis and said they must have used that instant cappuccino powder you can buy at the grocery store. I told him I wanted to try to make it at home soon.

What is it with milkshakes and always enjoying them at restaurants or out? I love milkshakes and always feel like they are a lot of work to make at home, they seem like a luxury item…don’t you agree? But honestly, if you have a good blender and the right ingredients, they are so easy to make at home!

I found a French vanilla cappuccino powder (basically instant), I’m sure you can use whatever flavor you’d like (think mocha!).

It’s super easy and takes seconds to blend together.

    Love it, Julie. I love anything that has a coffee flavor, as you know. This looks yummy! I bet it would be great just in regular milk too.
