Mocha Milkshake

GF Recipe Summary

Exclusive recipe from our Gluten-Free Gourmet Desserts Cookbook collection (pages 208-209)

Gluten-Free Mocha Milkshake: A cool and refreshing milkshake featuring a blend of chocolate and coffee, topped with a bit of whipped cream and grated chocolate.

In my opinion, a Mocha Milkshake is about as refreshing as things get on a warm day.

And, if you want to try a vegetarian / vegan version  of this milkshake, see my blog entry from 2010 where I provide this Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Milk-Free Milkshake  : Healthy Diet Recipe / Method — using frozen watermelon as a key ingredient to achieve a very delightful texture.  I have also provided various chia-seed based diet milkshake recipes over the years featuring my Chia-Seed Slurry and Ice-Cubes Recipe and pumpkin and more.

Gluten-Free Recipe Card and Pictures

Gluten-Free Mocha Milkshake
½ Cup Crushed Ice (4 or 5 Ice Cubes)
1 Teaspoon Instant Coffee
1½ Cups Milk (or Soymilk)
1-2 Cups Chocolate Ice Cream (vary for desired consistency)
2 medium sized milkshakes.
Baker’s Tip
By omitting the coffee, you can easily make a regular chocolate milkshake. Likewise, altering the flavor ice cream makes for plenty of simple milkshake variations. Choose a garnish that enhances your chosen milkshake flavor.
  1. Place crushed ice into blender — or, if starting with ice cubes instead, place cubes in blender and grind into finely chopped particles.
  2. Add remaining ingredients. Vary ice cream amount based on the type of milkshake consistency you prefer — for thinner shakes, use one cup of ice cream, and for thickest shakes use twice that amount.
  3. Blend on medium speed just long enough to evenly mix all ingredients.
  4. Optionally, for both taste and presentation, garnish with whipped cream or non-dairy whipped topping, and top with shaved chocolate (as pictured).
