If you haven’t tried coffee and citrus together before, let this Orange French Press Coffee Milkshake change your heart and mind! If you like orange chocolate, you’ll love orange and coffee flavors together, too.
We love coffee in my house. My husband is what you mighhhttt call a “coffee nerd.” He loves keeping up with the latest and greatest brewing methods. Seriously, we have an entire section of our kitchen dedicated to storing things like our Chemex, Aeropress, French press, and other fancy coffee brewing doodads.
More Coffee-Citrus Goodness: Hard Iced Coffee Lemonade
I’m less of a coffee nerd, but I do love a good cup of coffee. That’s why I was super excited when Folgers® offered the chance to create a fancy drink using their Folgers® Coffeehouse Blend! This coffee is great black – it’s smooth with a bold finish – and it’s also lovely with a little bit of soy milk or in a recipe. I’ve had it hot and iced, and it’s lovely. It is the star of this Orange French Press Coffee Milkshake!
I grabbed a can of the new Coffeehouse Blend at a Publix here in town.
It says right on the package that it’s perfect for French press, which is what gave me the idea to use French press as the base for my milkshake recipe.
French press has a richer, bolder flavor than drip coffee, in my opinion, and I really wanted the coffee flavors to shine in this vegan milkshake recipe.
The folks at Folgers® have offered up a coupon for $1.00 off any Folgers® Coffee Product (excluding Instant), so you can try the Coffeehouse Blend for yourself. Grab it right here.
How to Make Orange French Press Coffee
To make the shake, you start by brewing up a cup of orange French press coffee. This might sound fancy, but it’s totally not. If you can lift and lower your hand, you can make orange French press coffee. Here’s a quick video, so you can see how easy this coffee is to make:
And here are written instructions, in case you swing that way:
- Spoon 2 tablespoons Folgers® Coffeehouse Blend grounds into the bottom of your French press
- Add 1 teaspoon orange zest.
- Pour in 1 cup boiling water, and stir.
- Steep for 5 minutes.
- Very slowly lower the plunger. You don’t even really have to press. Just let the weight of your hand and arm press the plunger down.
- Let the orange coffee cool, then make your shake! You can pour the coffee into a mug and stick the mug in the fridge to speed up the cooling process, if you want.
