Cool off this summer with these easy Mocha Fudge Milkshakes. There is nothing better than coffee, ice cream, and hot fudge in a glass. It's rich, creamy, and so delicious.
Coffee is the one thing that my husband and I drink the most. Well, after water that is. There is nothing like the smell of a freshly brewed cup of coffee to get you moving.
I am not a morning person, so I need that smell and caffeine to get my body to do what my brain is saying in the morning. Ok, so maybe need is a strong word. I want that boost to get myself ready to take on the day.
My favorite thing to do each morning is to pour a cup of hot coffee, top it with some frothed half-n-half, and sprinkle on some cinnamon. It's the perfect thing to sip on as I enjoy some quiet time on our back patio.
I love coffee so much that I like to refrigerate the leftover coffee because is the perfect addition to an after school milkshake. Although, lately the kids have been drinking more coffee, so there isn't much leftover after everyone has a cup.
Those are the days I have to pull out the cold brew coffee from the back of the fridge if I want to enjoy a coffee milkshake.
Our kids all love a good cup of coffee. I trained them well by taking them on "dates" to different local coffee shops over the years.
Adding coffee to ice cream is the perfect way to enjoy a quick and easy treat on a hot summer day. You can refrigerate leftover coffee to use in these shakes, or buy containers of iced coffee or cold brew coffee to keep on hand for drinks.
This Mocha Oreo Milkshake is another delicious milkshake flavor that all our kids love too.
This milkshake contains all my favorite flavors in one glass. Chocolate, coffee, and hot fudge equals bliss in a cup!!! It's so easy to make a fancy drink that tastes like a coffee shop drink.
Grab your blender and get ready to make this easy three ingredient milkshake.
How to make a Mocha Fudge Milkshake:
Add the ice cream and cooled coffee to a blender. Pulse until thick and creamy.
Pour the milkshake into glass cups. Top with hot fudge and serve immediately.
The Cool Whip, sprinkles, and cherry are optional, but I think they make these coffee milkshakes so much better.

They look so indulgent, but really good! Maybe I’ll have to whip these up for someone’s birthday party 🙂
the mocha fudge milkshakes. you say coffee twice in the recipe (vanilla and coffee, then chocolate and coffee) is it 2 cups or 1 cup split. l
I'm sorry about that. It is 1 cup of cooled coffee, split. Use 1/2 cup for the vanilla and 1/2 cup for the chocolate.
Bliss in a glass. Love this idea! We almost never have 2 flavors of ice cream in the freezer at the same time, but boy would I love to make these for a special event sometime.
My kids love coffee too! Some adults say they had to "get acquainted" with the taste of coffee but my kids love it from the start! That being said, they only get it occasionally and even then it is usually decaf. I will have to try making these milkshakes for them!

These look totally scrumptious!
Thank you Jennifer!
Fabulous milkshake! I often make my son a milkshake for and afterschool snack - always chocolate. But this mocha milkshakes is a great idea. And yes, our kids drink coffee, too! And we are ok with that. Gorgeous pics!
Milkshakes are such a great after school snack. Glad to hear you give your son coffee too 🙂
Love the Keurig, I do not own one but my mom does and I use it non stop when I visit! Coffee is a must in our house!
Coffee is a must here too! I'm thinking you need a Keurig for you house too...sounds like a great birthday gift to ask for 🙂
I have a birthday in 3 weeks and I think that is a great idea!
YUM this looks so good. I don't have a Keurig but my daughter keeps telling me she wishes we had one for those mornings she's running off to work w/o a cup of Joe. I may have to break down and get one especially when you can create wonderful beverages like this.
They are totally worth it! I love how quick and easy it is to make a cup of coffee on the run!!
I have tried the Gevelia coffee and love the signature blend! This milkshake looks absolutely yummy! With the temps creeping up, this will be perfect to cool off with.
This will be a staple in our house this summer! I love easy milkshakes to cool off with!

My boys love coffee milkshakes! And they love coffee. When we used to live closer to a coffee shop (now, there's not even one in our county!), I always took my middle son every Friday morning and had a mom/son date. It was our time to spend together while reviewing for the spelling test he had for that day. Even when we go into town, all my boys love their fancy coffee. (yes, even the 6 yr old!)
Btw, these shakes look really fun and delish! (=
I'm glad to hear that I am not the only one caffeinating my kids on dates 🙂 I'm sure your son loved that special time with you!!!
Jess @ On Sugar Mountain
OMG it's like the kid in me and the adult I should be have just become best friends over this milkshake! <3
Yeah coffee milkshakes are sure to do that!!!
Aimee @ ShugarySweets

Coffee milkshakes are the best!!! I do know how much you love them too!!!
Michele @ The Scrap Shoppe
Yum!!! I *might* be addicted to the mocha java chillers at Sonic and this *might* be my new favorite recipe so I don't have to drive 15 minutes to get one. 😉 Thanks for sharing, Jocelyn!!
This is going to be so much faster and cheaper for you...don't hate me when you become addicted to making them at home though 🙂
Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust
I am so all over coffee in my shake. Lately coffee has become an all day necessity!
Coffee is a daily necessity here too! I do need to drop the caffeine though...it actually stresses me out more!
Oh my goodness! That is an awesome milkshake! I am really into the fudge lately and the ice cream!! I am in awe of this!
I could eat a spoonful of fudge every day 🙂 Probably not my best habit...
