What's not to like about a milkshake
with a dose of caffeine? These days it seems like there is a
national food day for everything but since I love food I figure why
not celebrate them even if they seem a bit ridiculous! Today is
National Coffee Milkshake Day. You can make a delicious, simple
coffee milkshake at home, spike it with a little liqueur and make it
a grown-up milkshake or go to your local Dunkin' Donuts or Starbucks
and order one - whatever strikes your fancy!
Below are a few different ways to make a coffee milkshake at home.
