Made with organic Chameleon Cold-Brew Black Coffee Concentrate, black Mission figs, and vanilla ice cream, these boozy milkshakes make for a quick, sophisticated dessert. 

A quick simple syrup infused with dried black Mission figs takes just few minutes of hands-on time and lends standout flavor. If it feels like too much, sub plain simple syrup or maple syrup instead.

Dried Fig Simple Syrup
  • 1 cup dried black Mission figs (about 18 figs)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 figs, stems trimmed and sliced
  • unsweetened whipped cream
  1. Pour the water into a medium-sized saucepan and set over medium heat. Stir in sugar, and when dissolved, add dried figs. Remove from heat just as mixture begins to boil. Set aside to steep for 30 minutes, then strain into a clean jar and chill, reserving the plumped figs for another use.

  2. Set out two Collins glasses. If desired, press sliced figs into the sides of the glasses for visual effect.
  3. To make milkshakes, combine Chameleon Cold-Brew Black Coffee Concentrate and fresh figs in the pitcher of a blender. Blend until mixture is smooth, but still has a few flecks of fig. Add ice cream, fig simple syrup, and rum, and blend just until combined and creamy.

  4. Pour milkshakes into glasses and garnish with whipped cream and a fig slice. Serve immediately.
