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.
Amazing, amazing! A milkshake with a cappuccino flavor and no need to turn on your coffee machine. I couldn't believe that this worked the first time too…it's so good! I know you'll love it! Perfect for a little pick me up in the summer. 🙂 🙂
