 At some point in my life, I’d be a great candidate for an espresso machine. Not only because I love the taste of espresso (my morning coffee resembles it), and not only because I’ve worked in numerous coffee shops and already know how to make it, but because it might stop me from wanting to infuse everything I make with a delicious hit of the stuff! Or…..I guess……it could make my obsession worse!?

 For me, there’s just something about the whole coffee experience that I savor. The sound of it brewing, the aroma in the air, the warmth of the cup in my hands……I’ve said this before, but there are definitely days when coffee is the only thing that gets me out of bed!

 But here’s the deal. I limit myself to 2 cups a day…..in the morning. So by 9 am, my coffee fix is over! What’s a coffee-loving girl to do, other than find a way around my own limits? You see where I’m going with this? Now, I realize that for those of you who don’t love coffee as much as I do, coffee-flavored desserts are probably not that exciting. And to you I say GET ON BOARD! Haha – just kidding. But you might want to consider it……

 Actually, though, this milkshake is easily de-mochified (just leave out the ground coffee!) Either way you like it, the one thing I can guarantee is you will like this treat. In fact, you will probably LOVE this it!. It’s delicious, it’s pretty, and it’s so easy to whip up and share with family and friends. Or enjoy all on your own. I definitely wouldn’t judge.

    I’m with you all the way on coffee. It’s such a comfort for me as you said…the brewing…the aroma. And the darker the better. I think if I had an espresso machine I’d totally go crazy with it! And this red velvet mocha milkshake looks so perfect for V-Day! Pinned.
