Who can resist a coffee milkshake morning, noon, or night? The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, a Los Angeles-based coffee chain, is famous for its Ice Blended drink, made from ice, coffee extract, milk, and the original Ice Blended powder, which comes in vanilla, chocolate, and white chocolate. Mocha's the original Ice Blended flavor, which is why Coffee Bean couldn't wait to show us how the drinks are made in stores. Check out the video, and then print out the recipe.
While you can buy the individual ingredients, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf also sells an Ice Blended drink kit ($28), which includes an acrylic cup, coffee extract, and the Ice Blended powder, in either vanilla or mocha.
