Caramel Coffee Shakes

Caramel Coffee Milkshakes: make your own coffee milkshakes at home with this easy recipe!

First, before I rant for the next minute or so, let me preface this with I love being a mom. I love my children. I love my husband.

What I don’t love is the joy they all seem to get when they sneak a little swig of mom’s drink. Everyone can have their own glass of pop in front of them, but it’s my Diet Coke they all seem to want to swipe.

But ahhhh, do I get my moment. That time around lunch when the house is quiet, everyone is at school, husband is at work and I can whip up one of these beauties in the blender. And I don’t have to share.ย 

Caramel Coffee Milkshakes: make your own coffee milkshakes at home with this easy recipe!

**I like to use Starbucks Coffee Caramel flavor for these, but any brewed coffee works great!
**I also topped mine with a Dark Chocolate Espresso Bean from Trader Joe’s

Caramel Coffee Shakes

Caramel Coffee Shakes


  • 6 coffee icecubes (see note below)

  1. In a blender, mix ice cubes, milk, ice cream, chocolate syrup and caramel until smooth.

  17. I know, right? My kids do the same thing! I can make them milk shakes and as soon as their done “Mom can I have a sip?” Drives me nuts! But I’m going to save some of the morning coffee for my ice cubes and come Tuesday when they’re all off at school, I’ll be thinking of them while I sip one of these, ahhh, sweet, sweet revenge! Does that make me a bad mom?
    Thanks for sharing, pinned!

    • Bollywood. Under the alias Ayush Kapoor, I will rise to the top of the Indian feel-good musical scene, leviang Slumdog Millionaire as nothing but a memory of a forgotten generation in film. Riding the tidal waves of success experienced by Bollywood’s rapid growth and international recognition, I amass millions in USD$, eventually establishing myself as a national icon. As with any superstar, my fame will burn out swiftly, after being spurned by the nation for leaked photos of me enjoying an Angus Chipotle BBQ Bacon burger from McDonald’s, (while filming on location internationally). My reputation tarnished, and fortune seized for the cliche9 actor didn’t pay any taxes’ incident, (here’s looking at you Wesley, stay strong!), I live out my remaining days in obscurity, answering phones for Dell’s shitty customer service line, never to act again.The End. 2 likes
