Vanilla Baileys Slushie
I love Baileys Irish Cream
They make a coffee creamer (non-alcoholic), too
And I love it in my coffeee for those non-alcoholic but still want the taste of Baileys moments
In the wee hours Friday night I had a craving for some Bailey’s. The alcoholic version. This is what I came up with.
Vanilla Baileys Slushie
1 shot glass of Bailey’s Irish Cream (about 1 ounce but 2 ounces is fine too)
8 to 10 ice cubes
1 splash water (about 1-2 tbsp)
Vanilla Stevia, to taste (optional)
1/8 tsp vanilla extract + sweeter of choice
Directions: Combine all items in Vita-Mix or blender and blend until ice is crushed and drink is frothy or slushie-like in texture
Note: Vita users are at an advantage because you are making Bailey’s “ice cream” in about 20-30 seconds in your machine <– buy a Vita if for no other reason than that
Gather your booze & sweetener, if desired. I always desire sweetener.
You can purchase Vanilla Stevia drops from iHerb cheaper than anywhere else that I’ve seen
If you enter code AVE630 at checkout, you’ll save $5 on your iHerb order and all orders over $40 ship free
Add the ingredients into your Vita or blender and let ‘er rip
The pictures scream late night + horrible lighting +iPhone photography
And that’s ok
Because when you want a Baileys Slushie late on a Friday night you are just not concerned about breaking out a big DSLR and waiting for perfect natural lighting.
But I get brownie points for my super classy plastic cup and glass straw, right?
For all the “volume eaters” (those people who’d rather have a huge plate of steamed broccoli for the same caloric value as 2 bites of a mashed potato with butter), this is a “volume drink”.
One little shot of Baileys produced all this drink (because of the added ice I surmise) and it just whipped up so well.
It was so cold that it gave me a Mister Misty headache when I tried to drink it too fast. It was so good, I couldn’t suck it down fast enough.
It was so good that I repeated this little experiment on Saturday night. And made a double batch and shared it with Scott. And he asked for seconds.
1. Do you like Baileys?
I think I should make Buttery Nipples next. I am feeling the Baileys love lately.
2. Do you drink your beverages at a slow, average, fast, or warp speed rate?
I am warp speed. I have to consciously remind myself to sip, not chug.
And even with hot temperatures and beverages, my chug-a-lug rate is not reduced.
Iced coffees are the worst for this because I could literally drink them in a few seconds. Just like some people can guzzle a 6 oz bottle or water in a few seconds, I can do that with iced coffees. With water too, but iced coffees are more fun.
I always make my own vanilla iced coffee and never buy them when I’m out. I could suck $4 down in about 4 seconds flat.
