Vietnamese Iced Coffee Milkshake with Coconut Ice Cream
This caffeinated milkshake, inspired by Vietnamese-style coffee, which is made with sweetened condensed milk, will cool you down and give you the burst of energy you're craving on a warm summer day. Top with whipped cream and toasted coconut for a frozen treat that will remind you of the creamy coffee drink you know and love.
Put the instant espresso powder in a small bowl with 1/2 cup of hot water. Stir and let the espresso dissolve completely, then allow to cool completely. Pour into an ice cube tray and freeze until completely set, at least 2 hours and up to overnight.
Put the coconut ice cream and sweetened condensed milk in the blender, then add the espresso ice cubes. Blend until the mixture is completely combined and smooth, about 2 minutes. (Stop the blender as needed and use a spoon to help evenly disperse the ingredients as they blend.) Pour into a tall glass and top with whipped cream and toasted shredded coconut if using.
