Frozen Blended Vegan White Russian

Blended White Russian | Vegan | Minimalist Baker

Things are about to get sexy up in here, White Russian style.

Vodka and Coconut Ice Cubes

Back in my naive, just turned 21 days, I didn’t know a thing about ordering a cocktail. Long lists of complicated drink names only confused me, and after one too many well-intentioned friends tried to “initiate” me with a jaeger bomb, I nearly signed off liquor altogether.

Then came the White Russian.

A White Russian is so creamy, sweet, delicious and secretly potent. I didn’t figure out the potent part until I downed three within one hour and was then found funning laps in a nearby parking lot just for fun. Hmmm, glad I’m not 21.5 anymore.

While a traditional White Russian is comprised of vodka, Kahlua and cream, I wanted to keep mine vegan so I opted for full fat coconut milk instead. Freeze those babies into cubes and you have the base for one seriously sensational frozen cocktail.

Ingredients in a White Russian

The coffee gets everything going in your blender and adds another element of coffee goodness to this drink. I could’ve slurped the whole batch down, but then I would’ve been running laps around our backyard and John would’ve have that. Thankfully I’m 26 now and just a tad wiser than my 21-year-old self. THANK GOODNESS.

This beverage is a D-R-E-A-M. Creamy, coffee-infused, plenty boozy and only slightly coconutty. Topped with a drizzle of chocolate sauce and it’s pure sin. Oh lordy, we’re going all in. Wanna join?

    Oh god, jager bombs…I still can’t think about ever drinking jager again. I agree, so glad I’m not 21 anymore. Although, I think I drank too many of those when I was 19.

    I’ve pretty much written on liquor, but this does look delicious.

    You classed up the white russian something fierce! ? After we’re 21, I think the other thing that no one wants to admit is how good white russians are. This one looks amazing.

    The ingredients are vegan friendly. After my comment in December of 2013, new information was added: “Barnivore note (February 2014): Kahlúa is owned by Pernod Ricard, a major funder of bullfighting.” It looks like that is the reason why Kahlua is now considered non-vegan.
