Okay, hotting up for weekend treats today!
Found this recipe in a little book called Spices – now, I’m not really sure why this fits into a ‘spices’ theme but the book was published nearly 30 years ago and this recipe looks so delicious, they are completely forgiven!
You’ll need to be a grown-up with a food processor or blender and a sweet tooth! And it’s just perfect if you’ve got some posh glasses as well. 🙂
Ingredients (serves 4-6)
3 teaspoons instant coffee granules
5fl.oz/155mls boiling water
16fl.oz/500mls vanilla ice cream
1 large banana
3fl.oz/90mls Tia Maria (or other coffee liqueur)
few drops of vanilla essence
2 teaspoons drinking chocolate powder
chocolate flakes to serve (optional)
1. Mix together the coffee and boiling water and leave to cool
2. When cooled, place all ingredients, except the chocolate powder and flakes, in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
3. Pour into tall glasses and sprinkle the chocolate powder over the top. Serve with chocolate flakes.
Enjoy your weekend 🙂
