What do you do when you REALLY want a cup of coffee but you have NO milk in the house? After a few minutes of sulking and wandering if I could put yoghurt in my coffee - Ewww! I eventually reached for the jar of my home made vanilla ice cream in the freezer and mixed some with my coffee. Results = Yumminess and even better than regular coffee!

Found 2 of these Milk stream glasses at a vintage store and I couldn't resist. They remind me of when I was young and my grand father used to have a soda stream machine, he would make us our own cool drinks in little glass soda stream bottles.
Not sure when they launched a milk stream? but they are pretty and vintage and I just like them. perfect for milkshakes.

Vanilla Ice Cream (home made or store bought)
Filter coffee left to get cold
Sugar (optional) 
Cream (optional)

Pour your cold coffee into your desired glasses about half way and fill up with ice cream.
Stir until well incorporated or leave your guests to stir their own and the black and white contrast of the vanilla ice cream and black coffee is quite pretty. Garnish with some whipped cream if desired.
Add sugar if you need more sweetness - I didn't need it but make to your own preference.

Enjoy - Happy Coffee filled weekend!
