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

Also, Remember for a limited time all orders will be sticks only NO BOXES - remember #blametheshiba

We've decided to pass the virtual baton and take turns as a team checking in with our community and I'm first up!

QUARANTINE 2020 Check In

QUARANTINE 2020 Check In

Hope everyone is staying sane—not gonna lie, I’m slowly losing it!

I don’t think my house has ever been this clean and not sure I’ve ever made this many home-cooked meals in a row. I’ll refrain from telling you all about Veronica, my sourdough starter, but just know that we’ve rekindled our relationship.

And dare I mention the hours of Netflix I’ve recently dropped into? I mean, Tiger King: check; Ozark: check; Better Call Saul: check. Need I go on?

But if you’re like me and now want to spend a little less time watching TV (or just need something to do with your hands while you watch TV), I have two fun ideas:



Our in-house creative genius (shout out to Amy!) has made all of our packaging illustrations from Alvaro Ilizarbe available as PDFs here. They make for the perfect coloring book! Just download the book, grab your favorite colored pens (or just steal your kid’s crayons…) and get to work!

And the final step of art is to show your work! Take a picture of your masterpiece and use #AlpineStartColoring and @alpinestartfoods on Instagram to be entered to win a free Alpine Start variety pack.

2. COOK... err, blend?

If coloring isn’t your thing (it’s honestly not mine… I’m not that great at keeping it between the lines), then perhaps cooking is more your speed. Check out this (dare I say, fun) video of how to make Dalgona coffee, the velvety smooth whipped coffee that’s lighter than the clouds we dream on.  If you need to stock up on ingredients use the code Dalgona20 at checkout to receive 20% off your order.

We’re also making this a fun competition, so share your Dalgona adventures with #AlpineStartDalgona and @alpinestartfoods on Instagram and you’ll be entered to win a free Alpine Start variety pack.

The best posts from each entry will be announced at the end of April.

Good luck, enjoy, and don’t forget to wash your hands,
