The Late Night Hunger Problem

16 Mar

Do you ever finish dinner and think “that was really good, but I’m still kind of hungry”?  If not, feel lucky. I personally am often plagued with this problem. I don’t want to make some fancy dessert, because I’m tired and lazy.  Well, tonight I found a dessert that is quick, easy, and quite delicious.  Tonight I made my very first Dulce de Leche Coffee milkshake.
Some instant coffee
Whole Milk
Ben and Jerry’s Dulce de Leche ice cream (you can use other brands, but Ben and Jerry’s happens to be a brand that treats their cows humanely).
In the blender, put a scoop of ice cream.  Then add about 1 tablespoon of whole milk.  Next, boil about half a cup of water, and add about one and a half tablespoons of instant coffee (if you’re having it late at night, decaf might be advisable).  Pour about 2 or 3 tablespoons of the coffee into the blender as well, and blend!  I happen to have a small blender, but if you have a bigger blender, you can double the recipe and save some for later.
Happy slurping!!
