Chocolate. Vanilla. Strawberry. When it comes to milk shakes, everyone has a favorite flavor, and we totally respect that. (Hey, you do you.) But for now, let’s put personal preference aside to celebrate mocha milk shakes. We blend coffee ice cream with milk, cocoa and espresso powders, and grated dark chocolate. (We’ll give you a second to read that last line again.) And of course no shake is complete without some whipped cream--homemade is preferred, but store-bought is fine. So grab a straw, and probably a spoon, and get to it.
