  • 3 scoops mint chocolate chip ice cream
  • 1 ounce espresso
  • Chocolate syrup, for garnish
  • Chocolate shavings, for garnish


Blend ice cream with espresso until smooth and thick. To serve, drizzle some chocolate syrup around the side of a tall glass. Add in milkshake and top with chocolate shavings.
