It’s Monday….and I made you a milkshake to help you shake the Monday blues…aren’t I the best?  I also have an awesome giveaway for you – double win.  This Turtle Coffee Milkshake isn’t just any milkshake, though – it’s THE ultimate king of all milkshakes.  Dare I say it’s even better than a Starbucks Frappuchino.  Yup, I said it (don’t hate me now all of you Starbucks fanatics).  I would take one of these babies or my caramel coffee milkshake any day of the week.  I received an awesome 2-Way FlexBrew® Coffee Maker from Hamilton Beach and decided to have some fun with the coffee I was brewing up in it.  After all, plain coffee gets boring after a while, right?  Enter my invention: this Turtle Coffee Milkshake.

This Turtle Coffee Milkshake is a blended coffee treat much like an iced cappuccino you might buy at a restaurant.  Sure, you can buy a coffee milkshake, but can you make the best homemade coffee milkshake ever?  It takes five minutes to make:  just brew the coffee of your choice and blend all ingredients together.  Make the coffee stronger than you normally would if you would prefer the coffee flavor to stand out more in the milkshake.  I used a medium roast and still thought the flavor was right on point.  It’s refreshing and delicious for a cold mid-afternoon snack or even doubles as dessert!

Hamilton Beach 2-Way FlexBrew Coffee Maker Review and Giveaway.

I posted a photo of this coffee maker when I got it in the mail and it got quite the reaction on Facebook from my friends.  I can’t say I was really that surprised as it’s a very cool and unique thing to have in your kitchen and I have never seen anything like this machine before.  The 2-Way FlexBrew Coffee Maker maximizes your brewing flexibility and offers more brewing options than most coffeemakers.

What’s so different about it is that you can use the single-serve side to brew into a standard-size cup or brew up to a 14 oz. travel mug OR you have the choice of brewing with a single-serve pack or your favorite ground coffee.  What’s more, on mornings when you want to enjoy multiple cups or are making coffee to share when you’re entertaining (or have a big family), the carafe side makes a full 12-cup pot.  It’s a huge space saver that provides options for your coffee drinking needs and preferences.  It’s one of Hamilton Beach’s most popular products and I’m excited for one of you to win one for yourself!

Thanks to the generous people over at Hamilton Beach, one lucky Wishes and Dishes reader is going to receive their own 2-Way FlexBrew Coffee Maker worth $100!  Make this Turtle Coffee Milkshake (your taste buds will thank you) and also scroll on down for your chance to win and to see how easy it is to enter.  If you aren’t the lucky winner, this coffee maker is available at Walmart. 🙂

    That is one incredible milkshake! Turtles bring back fond memories from my caramel and chocolate-lovign youth, and you made it even better by adding coffee.

    Wow. That milkshake looks so rich and creamy. I like the idea of this coffee maker and that I can have the single serving and a larger pot if I’m entertaining or serving more than just myself. Best of both worlds.
