Ingredients

When making a cookie butter milkshake, it is essential to remember which ingredients will work best. Choose a recipe and run with it before you think of tweaking ingredients. This way, you will know what it is supposed to taste like and add or remove the flavors you don’t want.

Knowing the ingredients will help you understand what to expect from them and what you can use in their place if you need to. This could be because of a lack of availability in your area, an allergic reaction, or perhaps you don’t like the taste. When you understand the flavors the ingredients impart, it will be easier to maintain the integrity of the milkshake using the ingredients you prefer.

Vanilla ice cream

The great thing about vanilla is that it’s pretty standard. Go with the brand that you prefer. Consider texture, flavor, and what it tastes like when it’s melted and blended. Also, think about the sweetness and how it will pair with other ingredients.

Milk

For this recipe, whole milk works better. You can also use 1% or 2%, but whole milk will be a lot creamier and add that dimension to the recipe.

Whipped cream

Who doesn’t like a frothy, creamy milkshake? Adding whipped cream helps you achieve this. You can spray it from a can or make your own from scratch. The best type of cream should be well thawed out and ready to use.

Biscoff cookies

These cookies have a caramel-like taste. They are rich in flavor and are also spicy. Some of the spices involved include ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, and cloves. The butter also adds a certain richness to the cookies. You will need just a few of these cookies for this recipe.

Cookie butter spread

You can choose to go with the cookie butter of your choice. However, using the same brand of cookies will be helpful to match flavors and quality. For this recipe, we are using Biscoff cookies. As such, we use Biscoff cookie butter.

Expert Tips

You can have your milkshake in varying thicknesses. But what do you do if it is not thick enough? You can tweak the consistency of the milkshake by using heavy whipping cream. More of it will increase thickness, and less will reduce it. 

You can also reduce the amount of milk used if you would like the milkshake to be thicker. Adding milk will help you blend the shake better together. Be careful when you use ice, as this will thin out the shake. Try to balance it out.

Make sure to use cookie butter and cookies with similar flavors. For example, if you’re using ginger cookies, use the ginger cookie butter. This way, there is no confusion about the flavors.

Another tip that you could consider is to prepare all your ingredients. It doesn’t take a long time to make a milkshake. As such, it helps to have all your ingredients on hand when you initially start the process.

Consider using garnishes that will complement the existing flavors in the milkshake. For instance, you could sprinkle more cookie crumbs on top. You could also add whipped cream or cherries.

How to make cookie butter milkshake

This recipe should take you a total of about 5 minutes. It is straightforward. Get the blender and your glasses ready, as well as the garnish you prefer to use. You will need 3 cups of vanilla ice cream, 1 cup of Biscoff spread, 1 cup of whole milk, five divided Biscoff cookies, and whipped cream.

The first step to making this milkshake is to put the milk, cookie butter, and ice cream in a blender. Mix the ingredients thoroughly and make sure they are fully mixed. About 45 seconds should do the trick. Ensure that it has no streaks or lumps when the blending is done; the smoother, the better.

The next step is to add about three or so Biscoff cookies to the mix. This will help give more flavor to the milkshake. Next, the biscuits will need to be broken down in the mixture. To do this, pulse the mixture for about 15 seconds, making the mixture a bit chunky.

Now the mixture is ready and can safely be called a milkshake. Pour it into glasses and serve.
