Coffee Caramel Milkshake

The weekend was so crazy. I never ever thought that I would be painting walls one day! Seriously in India, we always had painters to paint the wall, well everything is easy in a developing country when the cost of labor is low but not so in America. I have realized that all the small small things that we never even bothered doing ourselves in India (because there was ALWAYS someone to do it) has to done all by us here and that includes painting the wall.

So we have been meaning to paint the house ever since we moved but somehow with so much going on, we were not getting the time but this weekend we finally decided to take the plunge. And wow what a learning experience it was. We had no idea where to begin so we watched lots of videos online and then got all the paining stuff. At the end of it we were able to paint only 1 wall of the living room, the only one we wanted to for now. We still need to do bedrooms but that can wait plus I am sure it will be much easier the next time, now that we know where to start and what to do.

Coffee Caramel Milkshake Recipe

So while hubby was busy painting the wall, I made him this super easy coffee caramel milkshake. He loves all the cold drinks and I knew this is what he needed to relax a bit during this super busy weekend. Here’s the funny thing, he hates coffee, the hot coffee that is and he loves cold coffee. How weird is that? I think it has to do with the fact that we can never drink any hot drink, like not even when it’s snowing outside! :/ So yeah while I enjoy my chai in the morning alone, he is more than happy to give me company when I make him drinks like this coffee caramel milkshake.

Coffee Caramel Shake

All you need to make this milkshake is mix everything together in a blender. And of course whipped cream is optional but always recommend. I used Bru instant coffee here (it is a brand commonly available in India] but you can use any instant coffee of your choice.Β Drizzle some more caramel sauce on top and enjoy this coffee caramel milkshake before it starts getting cold!

* To make the milkshake creamier (and yes more delicious too!) add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to it.

PS: This milkshake isn’t thick like the milkshakes you get in America. I am used to drinking thin consistency milkshakes because that’s what I drank growing up. If you like thick milkshakes, reduce the quantity of milk and add more vanilla ice cream!

  1. I totally get you how we end up doing so much stuff here which we sort of neglect back home lol!! But I feel it is such a good learning experience and isn’t it so good to be hands on and be able to take charge of things?! If you need any sort of help or advice Manali, you can always email me as my hubby grew up here so he knows a lot about these things.

  2. This milkshake just screams summer, Manali! I love it! Oh, and don’t even get me started on painting. If you do manage to hire someone here, chances are they will do an awful job. I don’t know what it is about painters in the U.S., but we’ve had some terrible luck hiring them. Just do it yourself…and have a milkshake afterwards as a reward! πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks David! Umm painting wasn’t that much fun actually, we are actually thinking of hiring someone to paint the bedrooms but now your advice is making me re-think my decision! :/

  3. This looks like the answer to my summer afternoon prayers! It’s so cool and thick. I love coffee milkshakes, and adding caramel is just another step in the best direction possible!

  4. Oh, I know what you mean, I don’t like painting, but it is a lot cheaper to do it yourself here in the US πŸ™‚ This milkshake looks gorgeous!

  5. Oh yeah! Painting is sure a new thing for us here! So true, back home, no one even bother or worry about paint color! lol! PS: Drink looks very delicious, Manali! Sure a treat after a long day of painting! πŸ˜‰
