The other night I was making German sausage with onions and spaetzle, and wanted a German inspired dessert that was easy and not very heavy. Black Forest Cake is a great German dessert but not easy or light, so I made a blended coffee version.
Black Forest Blended Coffee
Makes 3-4 servings
- 1 cup cold strong coffee
- 1 cup milk (can use coconut milk or your favorite dairy-free milk to make this a vegan drink)
- 4 cups ice
- 6 tablespoons sugar
- 6 tablespoons of chocolate syrup
- 4 tablespoon of juice from maraschino cherries
- Maraschino Cherries (optional)
- Whipped cream (optional)
Mix all of the ingredients, other than the whipped cream and cherries, in the blender until smooth. If desired, top with whipped cream and a cherry or two. And don’t forget to serve it with a glass straw and in a cute glass.
