Fridays seem like such a great day to indulge in an extra special treat, don't you think?
It's the end of the working week. Pat yourself on the back for a job well done, you've made it.
You've met with that pesky client and came out with clear objectives. Well done!
You've read and marked 56 short stories, of which only one made any grammatical sense. Bravo!
You've successfully avoided your boss long enough so they can't reasonably ask you to work this weekend. You're a champ!
What a great/long/productive/exhausting week it's been. No matter which adjective you choose to use, you deserve a treat. So let's do this!
To break this down for you we've got ice cubes made out of coffee, almond milk, pumpkin spice syrup, coffee, and vanilla ice cream. All of these a great things to have individually, but when you put them together ... that's when the magic happens.
Bitter coffee with sweet ice cream. Spicey pumpkin syrup with cool ice cubes. Just the right amount of creaminess from the almond milk. There's a lot going on, and it's fantastic.
Keep reading for the recipe!
Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte Ice Cream Float
Note: For the ice cubes, I found it was easy to just pour a few at a time when I had leftovers from my morning cuppa.
5-6 coffee ice cubes
1/4 cup almond milk (I used unsweetened vanilla)
3 Tbsp pumpkin spice syrup
1/2 cup cold coffee
1/4 vanilla ice cream (or as much as you like - it's your treat!)
- Combine first 4 ingredients in a tall glass and stir
- Top with ice cream
