3-Ingredient Mocha Milkshake

Remember that coconut ice cream we made?

Yeah, you’re gonna need that. It’s coffee chocolate milkshake time (as promised).

This mocha milkshake is inspired by one of my favorite childhood desserts – Arby’s Jamocha milkshake.

I know – shame, shame. But I was a bit of a junk food addict growing up – true story.

If you’ve never had a Jamocha shake, imagine vanilla ice cream blended with chocolate syrup and coffee. My version is a bit healthier than the original with no added sugar, thanks to cocoa powder, plus it’s vegan-friendly.

It also requires just 5 minutes and 3 basic ingredients once you’ve made (or bought) your coconut ice cream.

This shake is beyond dreamy. It’s:

& Perfectly sweet

This makes the perfect dessert when you’re wanting something creamy and cold or when a serious coffee craving strikes (i.e. every minute of the day).
