How To Make A Cappuccino Milk Shake
Place 6 scoops of vanilla ice cream into a 16 oz plastic cup. Warm this in the microwave for 10 seconds, just enough to soften your ice cream if it's solidly frozen.
Add milk into the 16 oz plastic cup. Pour it in until it reaches 1/3 of the way up the plastic cup. Add 4 T. of the dry instant cappuccino mix and 1tsp of vanilla extract. Feel free to experiment with different flavors of extract and even try chocolate ice cream if you are a chocolate lover.
Put just one of the beaters into your hand held electric mixer. Push the beater into the ice cream mixture and start it out on the lowest setting. Hold tight to the plastic glass, as it will jump around if you don't, creating a big mess! When the ice cream has softened and mixed into the milk, increase your beater speed to the next level and mix a few seconds more, to reach your desired consistency. The longer you mix, the thinner the shake will be.
Top the glass with a large spoonful of whipped topping. Serve to a guest or enjoy this delicious refreshing treat for yourself!
