Low Carb Mocha Latte Ice Cream BarsDid you know that it’s National Coffee Milkshake Day? Honestly, I do NOT know who makes these things up and I wouldn’t even know that coffee milkshakes had their own special day if a PR rep had not reached out to me with a press release. Yes, really. Apparently coffee milkshakes deserve not only their own day, but their own press release. I am flummoxed, because quite frankly, I don’t think I’ve ever had a coffee milkshake in my life. I love coffee, I love milkshakes, and I adore coffee ice cream. But I have never gone out of my way to make or purchase a milkshake made with coffee or coffee ice cream, although it’s not a bad idea. Not a bad idea at all, actually! However, the recipe I am bringing you today is not a milkshake but it does have coffee and ice cream. This one is by special reader request and it’s just a complete fluke that it happens to be National Coffee Milkshake Day.

Cosmopolitan Jello Shots

Have a refreshing summer cocktail in solid form! These low carb Cosmo Jello Shots are a fun way to chill out at your next backyard bbq or get together.

Sugar-Free Cosmopolitan Jello ShotsYay, it’s Friday! It’s the end of a long week and you deserve a cocktail. Or maybe you’re on vacation right now; perfect excuse for a cocktail. Or maybe you work weekends and you just need to relax a bit before your workday starts. Have a cocktail! Really, let’s face it, any time is a good time for a cocktail. Especially when they are sugar-free, delicious and served in cute little lime wedges.

Okay, so jello shots aren’t really cocktails. I mean, yes, they have all the makings of a cocktail but they are in solid (semi-solid) form and you can’t sit there and sip them slowly while chatting to friends. And I don’t know too many people who are going to sit around and pop enough jello shots to equal the strength of a real cocktail. Perhaps some college-age kids might be up to the challenge, but I’d feel a little silly trying to make my way through happy hour by downing jello shots. Still, these low carb Cosmopolitan Jello Shots are so fun and cute and perfect to serve as a little treat at a backyard bbq or summer get-together. Just don’t get them mixed up with the kids’ jello. Then we might have a problem.
