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.
Ingredients:
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!!
