Café au Rhum

Yogurt drinks take some getting used to if you grew up on ice cream milkshakes. The yogurt can and often does leave an additional “tang” upon the palate that can come as a bit of a shock if you’re not expecting it.

There is a trick however. The colder you serve a yogurt-based, the sharper and more distinct the taste of the drink. If you chill a glass in the freezer for 10 minutes before pouring, it will help greatly.

This coffee and the ice cream blend quite nicely into the yogurt and the rum adds a richness. If you’re into yogurt drinks, this is a nice recipe to have around.

Oh, and the ice cream and yogurt are listed by weight. Milk is listed by volume.

  • 2 cups, whole milk
  • 2 cups, unflavored yogurt
  • 2 Tablespoons instant coffee
  • 4 Tablespoons spiced rum
  • 2/3 cup chocolate ice cream

Place all of the ingredients into a blender. Pulse until the concoction is smooth. Serve into your fantastically chilled glasses.

Serves 8
