Marvelous Mocha Shakes - Coffee Creations

Yum...a great scoop of vanilla ice cream, some rich chocolate syrup and - of course - a healthy splash of coffee equals a fun soda fountain treat you can make at home. (And for WAYYY less money, to boot!) It couldn't get any easier than this icy treat...

1 large scoop of good vanilla ice cream per person
1 or 2% milk - the amount varies, depending on how many shakes you're making
2 tablespoons chocolate syrup per shake
About 1/2 teaspoon of instant coffee per person
A splash of vanilla (optional)
A few ice cubes (optional, but adds nice froth)

Combine in a blender until nice and frothy and smooth. Totally variable to make as many or as few mocha shakes as you need! (Or, let's face it...want!) Serve in large soda glasses with a straw. + a milkshake = heaven
