For this Butter Pecan Coffee Milkshake, I use Coffee Rendezbrew’s Rehoboth Beach Blend. This medium roast has cinnamon, praline and pecan flavors that pair perfectly with the butter pecan ice cream. It results in a sweet and nutty flavored milkshake. I recommend using a coffee flavor that you like.

Coffee Milkshake Add-Ins

The ingredients that you could add to this milkshake are endless. Here are some fun ideas:



What kind of coffee do you use in this milkshake? Use a coffee that you like! It can be regular or decaf coffee. Just choose a flavor that you would regularly drink. A sweeter coffee will pair nicely with the butter pecan ice cream.

How do you make cold brew coffee? Making cold brew coffee is as simple as combining coffee grounds with room temperature water and allowing the coffee to steep. Steeping time depends on taste but it is recommended to steep overnight (around 12 hours). Here is a great tutorial to make cold brew coffee at home along with the perfect coffee to water ratio from my friend Meredith at Our Love Language is Food!

Help! I don’t want my milkshake to contain caffeine! Use decaf coffee instead of regular coffee to not get a coffee high! You can make cold brew decaf coffee at home!

My milkshake is too thick. What should I do? If your milkshake is too thick, add more cold brew coffee or milk. Keep in mind, cold brew coffee has higher levels of caffeine than regular coffee. If you do not want too much caffeine, add more milk or use a decaf coffee.

My milkshake is too thin. Help! Add more ice cream to thicken your milkshake!

Can you use coffee instead of milk in a milkshake? You can absolutely use coffee instead of milk in a milkshake! Using coffee gives your milkshake a warm roasted flavor, a hit of caffeine and makes a milkshake appropriate for breakfast!
