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.

    WOW. I had a donut-infused latte at JG Domestic in Philly a few years ago and LOVED IT. I haven’t seen anything remotely similar until now. I need to make this!

    I could never get into the idea of a donut drive-through. I’m the girl who spends five minutes picking out the perfect cake donut before making a selection. My donut shop must love me.

    I love Burgatory’s shakes. It would be the perfect place for me if they got their act together on the veggie burger front. I’m not such a fan of their offering.

    The whiskey caramel one from the regular menu is my “usual” then this summer they did a strawberry pretzel salad one for a week. It was beyond words.

    I believe what you typed was actually very reasonable.
    But, what about this? suppose you composed a catchier post title?
    I am not suggesting your content isn’t solid., but what if you added a title that grabbed people’s
    attention? I mean Coffee and Doughnuts Milkshake | How
    Sweet It Is is a little boring. You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create news titles to get people to click. You might add a video or a related picture or two to get people interested about everything’ve got
    to say. Just my opinion, it would make your blog a little bit
    more interesting.
