Coffee is the thing my husband and I drink the most, after water that is. There is nothing like the smell of a freshly brewed cup of coffee to get you moving in the morning. I am quite the night owl, and I need that smell and caffeine to get my body to do what my brain is saying in the morning.
Recently I had the opportunity to try the Gevalia single serve cups for the Keurig. Our Walmart had the Colombia and the Signature Blend. You can see my shop over on Google+. We like the flavor of a more medium blend coffee, so I chose the Colombia. I was impressed with the rich, never bitter flavor as I sat and enjoyed my first K-cup of the day. I love that we can enjoy a premium cup of coffee right in the comfort of our home and jammies. That first cup makes me feel better about getting started with my day.
We love coffee so much that I like to brew an extra cup of coffee and let it cool in the refrigerator. It is the perfect addition to an after school milkshake. Yes, my kids drink coffee, and yes, we are fine with that. It is only a once in a while thing. Some of my favorite “dates” with the kids is when we make a stop at a local coffee shop for a fun drink.
Today I decided to surprise the kids with milkshakes when they got home from school. I made a coffee shake and a mocha shake and then tried to layer it in the jars with a layer of hot fudge on top. The layers didn’t work as well as I had pictured in my head, but it didn’t affect the taste at all. The Gevalia coffee paired so well with the ice cream.
It was warm in the house, and I enjoyed sipping one of these Mocha Fudge Milkshakes as I took a few pictures. Frozen food is always a challenge because it melts so quickly. Thank goodness for a coffee shake to distract me from taking a billion pictures this time. Maybe I should make a coffee shake every time I start to take pictures. It would sure save me some time later when I go to edit. Either that or I just need to make another shake to keep going when I need to work on pictures.
With summer just around the corner here, we will be enjoying plenty of milkshakes as a family on our new deck. Early morning cups of coffee and afternoon milkshakes…that deck is definitely going to get some good use this year.
