Reasons to Love this Recipe:
Unique flavor: Cookie butter has a distinct taste that combines the sweetness of cookies with a creamy and nutty flavor. Blending it into a milkshake creates a rich and indulgent flavor profile that is incredibly satisfying.
Creamy texture: Milkshakes are known for their smooth and creamy texture, and when combined with cookie butter, they become even more luxurious, like my best-ever biscoff cake with butter cream.
Nostalgic appeal: This biscoff cookie butter milkshake brings back many nostalgic feelings. It's like reliving the joy of eating cookies but in a delightful and refreshing milkshake form.
Versatility: it's easily customizable to suit personal preferences. Please see my substitution recs below.
Easy to make: not only is this milkshake recipe crazy easy to make, it uses only 5 ingredients to create a delicious milkshake in minutes.
Here are the ingredients you'll need to make this recipe:
Biscoff Cookie butter: A few tablespoons of smooth Biscoff spread will amp up the cookie flavor and add extra creaminess to the milkshake.
Ice Cream: I used vanilla ice cream to give this milkshake a luscious base. See flavor suggestions below.
Half and half: the more fat in the milkshake, the creamier the consistency. I used half and half to achieve that texture we all love.
Sweetener: I used Dulce de Leche for added flavor and texture. Honey or milk syrup will do.
Biscoff cookies: this is another main ingredient that's both for flavor and texture. I usually get mine from my local grocery store; you can find it on Amazon.
Whipped Cream: Top your Biscoff milkshake with a dollop of whipped cream for an indulgent feel.
Biscoff Cookie Crumbs: Crushed Biscoff cookie crumbs make a delightful garnish, adding texture and visual appeal.
Now that your ingredients are ready, it's time to blend them and create an irresistible cookie shake.
Substitution and Variations
Nut butter: If you can't find the Lotus brand, you can use other brands of speculoos cookie butter or nut butter like peanut, almond, walnut, soy, or hazelnut. Please be advised these substitutes can alter the taste of the milkshake significantly.
Milk: You can use whole milk for a more decadent shake or a lighter variety like almond, soy, or oat milk.
Ice Cream: coconut ice cream is a flavor I am obsessed with for this milkshake. Other flavors will do, be sure not to use one that can overpower the milkshake flavor.
If you prefer a dairy-free option, use non-dairy milk and a suitable alternative to traditional ice cream.
Steps by Step Instructions
See the recipe card below for the exact measurements needed to make a lotus milkshake.
Step 1: We will start by melting the biscoff butter before spreading it on the rim of the serving glass with crumbled biscoff cookies. Drizzle more spread into the glass, then chill for later. (This will keep the shakes chilled a little longer. It also keeps the biscoff drizzle intact before pouring in the shakes.
Step 2: Add the half-and-half, cookie butter, dulce de leche, and vanilla ice cream into the blender, and top with whole biscoff cookies (if desired).
Step 3: Blend the ingredients until everything is well combined and smooth.
Step 4: Pour the mix into the chilled serving glass. Swirl a generous amount of whipped cream on top, then garnish with crumbled cookies and a drizzle of cookie butter.
Serve immediately, and enjoy!
- Get a good quality milk and vanilla ice cream to enhance the flavor and creaminess of your milkshake.
- Speculoos butter is sweet, so taste the milkshake before adding more sweetener. Start with a small amount and gradually adjust to your taste.
- Blend the ingredients thoroughly to achieve a smooth and creamy consistency. Start slowly incorporating the ingredients, then gradually increase the blender's pace until you reach your desired texture. Make sure there are no lumps of cookie butter left.
- Once you've filled the cup, tap the bottom to remove the air pockets for a smooth milkshake.
- Avoid weighing down the milkshake with the garnishes. Garnish your cookie butter milkshake with a sprinkle of crumbled cookies, a whipped cream swirl, or a chocolate sauce drizzle. These finishing touches can make your milkshake look even more enticing.
- While a classic milkshake is delicious, you can get creative and add various ingredients to enhance the flavor. Consider incorporating a drizzle of caramel syrup for a caramel cookie butter twist or a handful of crushed sandwich cookies for added texture.
It's best to enjoy your Biscoff milkshake fresh, as it is at its creamiest and most delicious when freshly made. However, if you have any leftovers, you can store them in an airtight container in the freezer for a short period. Just note that the texture may change upon thawing, so consuming it as soon as possible is recommended; better yet, blend it while frozen.
While Biscoff cookies are the traditional choice for a Biscoff milkshake, you can experiment with other cookies. However, remember that the unique caramelized flavor and texture of Biscoff cookies contribute to the distinct taste of the milkshake.
Absolutely! You can quickly adapt the recipe to make a vegan or dairy-free Biscoff milkshake. Substitute dairy-free vanilla ice cream and non-dairy milk like almond, soy, or oat milk. Check the labels to ensure the ice cream and dairy alternatives suit your dietary needs.
Certainly! Feel free to get creative with your Biscoff milkshake. Add a dash of cinnamon or a drizzle of caramel syrup for extra flavor. As for toppings, whipped cream, a sprinkle of Biscoff cookie crumbs, or a dusting of cocoa powder are popular choices. You can even experiment with a scoop of chocolate ice cream or a swirl of chocolate sauce for a decadent twist.
If you prefer a thicker milkshake, add more ice cream or reduce the amount of milk. Alternatively, increase the milk quantity or use less ice cream if you prefer a thinner consistency. Adjust the ingredients according to your preference until you achieve the desired thickness.
