Sorry to post OT (on topic), but since it's summer thought some people might want to give this a try. Simply and excellent, vary using powdered white chocolate, dark chocolate or extract of choice & turbinado sugar. Yields ~ two 15oz beverages. Pull three double ristrettos or two normales, ~4oz total, place in fridge to cool a bit (I prefer "livley" shots like City+ to LFC Kona:-) To blender add: 1c half & half 4T white chocolate powder (or dark chocolate) *or 1t vanilla extract (or other extract) and 3T turbinado sugar Pulse blend very briefly on low Add 14 ice cubes (more or less as needed) (Our cube maker slighter over 1/2oz each, atleast just tested and 4 cubes melted to slighly over 2oz water) Add the chilled shots Blend on high 'till milk shake consistency Serve as is or sprinkled with fresh ground nutmeg, cinnamon, chocolate shavings or whatever you choose. Whipped creamed a great way to kick it a notch entertaining, but only when infused with Turkish ground coffee of same used for shots:-) Adult variation: add a non-espresso shot of choice before blending. One good one a white chocolate version with shot of dark rum finished with touch of ground nutmeg and smidgen of allspice. (At least Debi says it's really good since I don't do alcohol) Now back to Foodsaver vac bagging all those frozen blueberries:-) Hmmm, just might have to put the Bric' & blender to work first!
