Frozen Mudslide Recipe

A healthier frozen mudslide made without ice cream. All you need is vodka, coffee liquor, Irish cream and ice.

This is a Sandals St. Lucia inspired frozen mudslide recipe made WITHOUT ice cream. Patty and I went to Saint Lucia for our honeymoon and easily drank two frozen mudslides a day on the beach. They were so refreshing, really simple, and honestly tasted like they were made WITH ice cream.

The best part is this mudslide recipe isn’t half as bad for you as your typical frozen mudslide made with lots of cream. With about 350 calories, I wouldn’t necessarily call them “healthy” but a much better alternative to drinking liquid ice cream on a hot day (which I’m not entirely opposed to either).

How to Make a Frozen Mudslide

All you need is vanilla vodka, coffee liquor (Kahlua), Irish cream and ice. Blend until smooth and creamy and serve, just like a chocolate frappe. After having about 12 of these on our honeymoon (and carefully watching the bartenders work their magic), I was blown away by how simple the recipe actually was.

Now obviously, if you add Milky Way ice cream to your mudslide, it is going to be out of this world good and really creamy, however you will be surprised by how delicious this simple concoction really is.

Serve in a frosted glass to keep mudslides frozen longer. You want them to be slightly thicker than a shake. If it’s too runny then add some more ice.
