TURTLE COFFEE COCKTAIL

TURTLE COFFEE COCKTAIL

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup {2 oz} brewed coffee
  • 1/4 cup {2 oz} Bailey’s Original Irish Cream
  • 1/2 cup {4 oz} milk
  • 2 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • chocolate and caramel syrup
  • whipped cream
  • crushed pecans

Brew fresh coffee and put in the fridge to cool (or you can use cold brew coffee) Pour the cold coffee, Bailey’s, and milk into a blender, add 2 scoops of ice cream.  Squeeze chocolate and caramel syrup in, as much as you like.  Blend until smooth.  Drizzle chocolate and caramel syrup on the inside of your glass, then pour the mixture in.  Top with whipped cream, a drizzle of chocolate and caramel syrup, and crushed pecans.

* Makes one drink

Variations:

ALCOHOL-FREE: 
Substitute Bailey’s non-alcoholic Irish Creamer for the actual Bailey’s.

LOW-FAT: 
Use nonfat milk and low-fat ice cream.  You can also get light whipped cream.

NUT FREE: 
Simply leave off the pecan topping and you should be good to go! 

CAFFEINE FREE: 
Use a decaf coffee.
Note: Chocolate has a small amount of caffeine, you could skip the chocolate syrup and just enjoy the caramel.

LESS DAIRY:
There aren’t a ton of good substitutions, but your best alternative is to use soy or Lactaid milk and soy ice cream, leave off the caramel and whipped cream, and substitute Kahlua for the Bailey’s.  Or you could just brew yourself a nice cup of coffee.  Probably easier.
