This coffee milkshake didn’t just happen. It was inspired.
Some recipes just come to me off the top of my head, some are well thought out and planned, and some are tweaked and adapted while baking! But today’s S’mores Coffee Milkshake was totally inspired by Starbucks recent release of the S’mores Frappuccino.
And while that is a *good* drink…it didn’t leave me satisfied. I knew I wanted to recreate that recipe, but with more flavor!!
That’s when it hit me. ADD ice cream. I mean, June is National Dairy month…so it’s a great fit! June Dairy Month is a time to celebrate America’s dairy farming families, who provide us with healthy, wholesome dairy foods. Did you know: Ohio’s dairy cows on nearly 2,800 family-owned dairy farms in Ohio produce more than 630 million gallons of milk, ranking the state 11th in dairy farming.
Deliver milk to the fridges of all Americans for Dairy Month! Milk is one of the most requested and nutrient-rich food items in our food banks, yet there’s a shortage because milk is rarely donated. Milk companies and dairy farm families have partnered with Feeding America for the Great American Milk Drive, an easy way for you to donate much-needed milk to hungry families in your community. Donate financially and see how much milk has been donated so far in your state.
Two years ago I had the chance to visit a couple dairy farms. I not only learned about where my dairy comes from, but I also learned a great deal about the animals and how well they are taken care of by the farm families! Learn more by watching some of the youtube videos featuring yours truly and my farm friend Frank!
I know I’ll be making this treat repeatedly this summer! It’s the perfect afternoon pick me up, packed with coffee…but also has the satisfying protein of dairy!
