Hey, why should the kids have all the fun? This one is strictly for mom and dad (or use decaf if you want to share).
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup espresso, (or strong coffee)
2 tbsp chocolate syrup
1 cup vanilla ice cream
6 ice cubes
grated chocolate, for topping
whipped cream, for topping
Combine the milk, espresso and chocolate syrup in a blender. Start the motor, then add the ice cream by spoonfuls and the ice cubes (one at a time). Stop the blender and scrape down the sides occasionally, until the mixture reaches a creamy consistency, without any chunks of ice. Pour into glasses and garnish with whipped cream and a sprinkle of grated chocolate.
