Recipe For Vietnamese Iced Coffee Milkshake

Head straight on to the recipe for Vietnamese Iced Coffee Milkshake ♥

If I knew how to speak Vietnamese I would have written Vietnamese Iced Coffee as Cà phê đá sữa lắc. This iced coffee treat was perfect for me as I love ice cream and I love espressos. It was the perfectly sweet way to end my afternoon.

When I got my new laptop I started from scratch, loading documents and programs as I needed them. Of course, one of the first programs a blogger needs is one to edit photographs. I have used Picasa for years, preferring it to Photoshop which I have paid for. (And as an aside, is for sale). You cannot imagine how my heart sunk when I realized that Picasa had been retired! Google no longer had a download file and I started off looking for a replacement in the wrong way. Instead of searching for a torrent site with the download file still available, I looked at alternatives. I had to get a post written and the photographs edited and I downloaded the first editing program I came across. I really did not like the interface and the editing complications and as soon as I had a gap I downloaded two more programs. Neither of them worked for me. I was desperate for a program that was as simple to use, and as effective, as Picasa. And then I had a brain wave, why not look for downloads on other platforms? I was so ecstatic to find that Picasa was still available. I did a little happy dance to celebrate, and celebrated even further with a weekday treat of a Vietnamese Iced Coffee Milkshake. I don’t usually enjoy afternoon desserts during the week but this was worth every sip!

  4. I love the recipe but wondering if I could make it lighter and less sweetened by reducing the condensed milk, would it work?
