Our little cupcake shop in town doesn't just have cupcakes - they have blended drinks, hot chocolate, and now ice cream. My friend, Karli, introduced me to their cold blending cocoa drinks, which are delish!
But at over $3.00 a piece, it's hard to splurge as often as I would like. And....they are made with half & half, which isn't waistline friendly - so I attempted to recreate my own version.
I'm happy to say it was very successful!
Here are the basic ingredients:
2 Cups pebble ice (I bought mine from sonic, 10 lbs. for $1.49)
1/2 C. milk (I used 1%)
3 heaping tablespoons chocolate drink mix ( I used carnation instant breakfast)
This is the fun part - you can now add any number of things to adjust the flavor.
add 2 TB. peppermint coffee creamer = Chocolate Peppermint
4 Tsp. Torini caramel sryup + a pinch of sea salt = Salted Caramel
and those are just the versions I've tried in the past week...
Blend until icy.
