What's Shakin?

If you follow us on Instagram, you might have seen our coffee milkshake (and if you don’t follow us, what are you waiting for?!  We got a lot of asks about the recipe, so we thought we'd share it with you all:

1 banana
8-10 oz of your milk of choice (we used oat)
1 tsp of Alpine Start Original Blend
A couple ice cubes

Not a banana fan?
Leave it out add a couple more ice cubes and 1/4 cup of a creamy milk like coconut or oat and a few drops of stevia

Wanna get more decadent??
Substitute half your milk for a 1/2 cup of ice cream!!

Need a lil protein boost?
Add a spoonful of nut butter

Fan of downers with your uppers?
Drop the banana
Use 1/2 cup of heavy cream
Add a shot of tequila 
use 1 cup of ice cubes

Throw your combo in the blender and enjoy. Oh! And remember, everything (and we mean everything) is better with whip cream on top.

Post an image of your milkshake with the hashtag #alpinestartshake and we’ll send a free sample pack of coffee you our favorite post!

Personally, we like to make our shakes with coffee from our bulk jar to limit at-home waste… use this code for 20% off our bulk jars this week only COFFEESHAKE
