Told you I currently have a small donut issue.

Ommph.

I don’t even know what I’m doing here.

Wait. Yes I do!

Coffee and Donuts Milkshake I howsweeteats.com

You should probably make this for dessert today. Or lunch. I find that cake donuts work best for texture and taste, but um, I’m pretty sure you can use whatever donuts you want and it will still be fabulous. I mean, you’re pureeing donuts into freaking ice cream. Details aren’t THAT important.

Coffee and Donuts Milkshake I howsweeteats.com

I made my donuts… just some easy baked ones based on one of my favorite recipes ever from Ashley (who also inspired these photos… duh), but you can just as easily purchase them… most likely at a drive-thru. Who invented donut drive-thrus? Like I seriously need to be LAZIER when I want to buy a donut. Please, let me sit in my car and wait for ten minutes instead of get five minutes of exercise and walk to get my donut. Good grief. How asinine.

That kind of behavior just leads to other slug-like actions, like being too lazy to get up and throw my gum away and therefore placing it on the coffee table while writing a blog post.

Just a hypothetical, people. Let’s hope it stays that way.

It’s Friday. Eat a donut. Or better yet… drink it.

Just trust me. If you don’t… you can always add some Kahlua?

    I need this in my life. Holy wow that looks good. I’m currently drinking an Oreo milkshake and pretending it’s a coffee and doughnuts milkshake instead. (Milkshakes for everyone!) Can’t wait to make this.

    Some Baileys even? :)
    This is such a fun milkshake. I can see my husband looking at me like I’m a lunatic, buying the donuts and dropping them in the processor…

    Right before I read the last line, I was thinking that this milkshake is just begging for some more fun to be added to it (and when I say fun, I mean alcohol). Thanks for reading my mind!

    Heavenly. I might stare at this pictures all day instead of actually doing any work. I started my own blog after an ongoing infatuation with cupcakes, but seeing this brings me back to my sweet tooth roots – donuts were my childhood obsession and I still go a little crazy for them.
