Ok folks hold on to your hats this is probably one of the best drinks yet on fridaysoff and it’s sans alcohol (what? on a Friday?)!

Courtesy of the fine people at DesignSponge I’ve got the recipe to (drum roll!) the Almond Joy milkshake (this one is for you Dad!)

So Almond Joys are only available in the US (they’re my fave) and they are basically a Bounty chocolate bar with almonds (heaven). Anyhoo who wouldn’t want that liquified and served up icy cold on a hot day like today?!

So here it is for your sipping pleasure and if you must I recommend adding a splash of Malibu Rum to spice up the end of your week.

You’ll need:

.    1 cup milk
.    1/2 cup coconut cream (not coconut milk coconut CREAM)
.    1/2 cup coconut flakes
.    2 cups creamy chocolate ice cream
.    1/2 cup crushed almonds

In a food processor put 1/2 cup almonds till finely chopped and set aside (half of this is garnish).

In a blender, pour milk, coconut cream, 1/4 cup of the ground almonds, coconut flakes,  ice cream.

Mix for 5 minutes.

Pour in large glasses and top with a spoonful or two of crushed almonds.

OMG amazing!
